Tax & Clean Energy Policy Advocacy

Last year, Congress extended existing biodiesel and renewable diesel tax incentives through 2024 and created new incentives for 2025 - 2027. Congress also created new incentives for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), which will benefit Clean Fuels members.

Currently, the U.S. Treasury and Internal Revenue Service are developing rules and guidance for these new credits. Congress directed Treasury to continue excluding co-processed renewable diesel and SAF from eligibility for tax incentives. Congress also intended Treasury to allow U.S. fuel producers to use the Argonne National Labs GREET model to determine eligibility for the new credits.

Please  use this form to identify your elected officials and ask them to ensure Treasury follows Congress' intent for these new credits. You can send a ready-made note -- or personalize it with information about your company.

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:

  • With plants and markets across the country, the U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel industry supports 75,200 U.S. jobs and pays $3.6 billion in annual wages. The industry generates more than $23.2 billion in economic activity each year.
  • Every 100 million gallons of production supports 3,200 jobs and $1.09 billion in economic opportunity for farm workers, producers, and distributors.
  • Biodiesel is a better, cleaner fuel. It is more than 70% less carbon intensive than petroleum diesel on average, and it significantly reduces particulate and hydrocarbon emissions that are tied to asthma and cardiovascular disease.
  • Biodiesel producers use a variety of raw materials – including recycled cooking oil, animal fats and plant oils – providing value to underutilized resources.
