EPA sets 1.28bn gal biodiesel for 2013

Glycerine consumers will probably like hearing this news as the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets its biodiesel requirement in 2013 at 1.28bn gallons under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) which established the second phase of the Renewable Fuel Standards program.

EISA specifies a one billion gallon minimum volume requirement for the biomass-based diesel category for 2012 and beyond. Under the EPA's definition, biodiesel products are "advanced biofuels that are derived from sources that include vegetable oils and wastes oils from renewable sources."
