Infrastructure Advocacy

Biodiesel and renewable diesel are drop-in replacements for petroleum diesel that are readily available today to reduce carbon intensity in transportation. On average, they cut carbon emissions by 74% compared to petroleum diesel. 

Congress recently created a Biofuel Infrastructure and Agriculture Market Expansion program that will improve a successful USDA biodiesel infrastructure grant program that with just $27 million has increased consumer access to better, cleaner fuel by more than 1 billion gallons. The new program was developed with bipartisan support. 

Please contact your Representative and Senators through this form to thank your Senators and Congressman, especially those who sponsored the original bipartisan legislation.

As our members and industry supporters communicate with Washington policy makers, the media, and the public, Clean Fuels provides the resources to the right and works with them to amplify these points:

  • U.S. demand for biodiesel and renewable diesel reached 3.2 billion gallons in 2021.
  • Federal matching grants help the industry build or retrofit terminals, storage, and rail capacity to enable broader consumer access to these clean fuels.
  • USDA’s Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program increased consumer access to cleaner fuel by more than 1 billion gallons per year. 
  • The increase will reduce GHG emissions by 9.4 million metric tons per year, at a cost of $2.67 per ton in the first year.
