WEDNESDAY, May 8, 2013 – The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) along with the Biodiesel Mixture Credit has helped spur increases in biodiesel volumes and they are expected to continue to increase in 2013. The foundation upon which the national biodiesel industry has been built involves the ASTM fuel specifications of D6751, D975, and D7467 and the national biodiesel accreditation program, BQ-9000. To qualify within the RFS-2, biodiesel or blends (e.g., B5, B20, etc.) must meet strict fuel quality specifications starting with production through retail delivery and use which directly involves petroleum distributors and their infrastructure. Therefore, distributors need to be sure the biodiesel they purchase and retail meets all current specifications.
The focus of this national webinar will be to 1) provide a quick overview of the biodiesel industry in 2013 and moving forward, 2) review critical points in the biodiesel fuel supply chain with respect to maintaining fuel quality, 3) present the most current information on the latest ASTM biodiesel fuel specifications and BQ-9000, and 4) discuss and state-level actions regarding biodiesel fuel quality.
