Dear Renewable Partners,

It’s a crucial time. Recent EPA proposals to increase renewable fuel levels are forcing biofuels producers and obligated parties to examine how they are complying with current regulations as well as how they would address any proposed changes. No easy task, but OPIS wants to help make your job easier.

  • If you are an obligated party under the RFS, you’ll want the most knowledgeable perspective on compliance issues (to avoid federal fines of up to $37,500 per day) and cost-effective strategies for buying biofuels and RINs.
  • If you’re a biofuels producer, you’ll want to know where your opportunities are greatest and how future developments may affect your business.

That's why OPIS has again assembled experts from across the fuels and biofuels industries to present timely, in-depth information on the key developments shaping the RFS2 program and the fuels industry.

I’d like to extend a personal invitation to you to join us at the 8th Annual OPIS RFS2, RINs & Biodiesel Forum in Chicago on Sept. 29 and 30 for in-depth discussion of today’s critical topics (see sidebar).

But it’s not enough to just be on top of current issues – this event will help you look ahead to emerging trends that could shake up your business, including avenues for use of higher ethanol blends; an update on the aviation sector’s use of biofuels and RFS2 courtroom battles that are still in play.

Join the industry, your customers, colleagues and competition at OPIS’s RFS2, RINs & Biodiesel Forum and come away more knowledgeable and better prepared for events that impact your operational decisions today and tomorrow.

I look forward to meeting you in Chicago!

Jeff Barber
