Biofuel, Fuel Retail Groups Ask Congress to Clarify SAF Credit, Disallow Co-Processed Petroleum

Dec 9, 2021, 14:00 PM
Group letter urges lawmakers to ensure a level playing field for emerging clean fuel producers

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, the National Biodiesel Board (NBB), Growth Energy, NATSO, representing America's travel plazas and truckstops, and SIGMA: America's Leading Fuel Marketers asked Congressional leaders to exclude fuels made by co-processing biomass with petroleum at oil refineries from proposed Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) tax incentives. Co-processed fuels are ineligible for the biodiesel and renewable diesel tax credit. The groups asked Congress to clarify language in the Build Back Better Act to ensure that all transportation fuels -- including aviation fuels -- made by co-processing biomass with non-biomass feedstocks are ineligible for incentives.

"To prevent stranding investments in existing and emerging environmentally beneficial biofuels facilities in rural America, and to ensure that any new SAF incentives are consistent with other tax incentives in driving economic, employment and environmental benefits, we respectfully request that lawmakers amend the definitions of SAF in both the Sustainable Aviation Fuel and the Clean Fuel Production Credit to clarify that eligible SAF does not include fuels derived by co-processing biomass with a feedstock that is not biomass," the letter states.

A copy of the letter is available to download.

The U.S. biodiesel and renewable diesel industry supports 65,000 U.S. jobs and more than $17 billion in economic activity each year. Every 100 million gallons of production supports 3,200 jobs and $780 million in economic opportunity. Biodiesel production supports approximately 13 percent of the value of each U.S. bushel of soybeans.

Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel and renewable diesel are better, cleaner fuels that are available now for use in existing diesel engines without modification. NBB is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel and renewable diesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers, and fuel distributors.

Quick Stats

Using Biodiesel instead of petroleum-based fuels reduces greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 74%.

Biodiesel is the nation's first domestically produced, commercially available advanced biofuel.

3.5 units of renewable energy are returned for every unit of fossil energy it takes to produce biodiesel.

The use of biodiesel over petroleum-based fuels reduces hydrocarbon emissions by 67%.
