Task Force: Ambitious Action and Investment Critical to Achieve U.S. Biofuel Goals
The United States has set an ambitious renewable fuels standard (RFS) of producing 22 billion gallons of biofuel by 2022. A new report by the Biofuels Infrastructure Task Force outlines how this standard can be achieved.
Currently, the U.S. produces 9 billion gallons of biofuel, so, in order to make the RFS timetable, the Biofuels Infrastructure Task Force says investment in the industry is critical. As well, the Task Force identified upgrades in infrastructure--such as new biofuel production plants, pipelines, and blending terminals--are necessary. The Task Force's report also recommended increasing the country's flex fuel vehicle fleet, and creating higher-ratio ethanol requirements in fuel.
Norm Szydlowski, chairman of the Task Force said, "the renewable fuels standard is ambitious. To meet its timetable, approaches to biofuels infrastructure upgrades must also be ambitious."
