A comprehensive course detailing the policy and economic drivers of biofuels supply and demand.

Join us at the OPIS RFS2, RINs and Biodiesel Forum, in order to get prepared for the challenges—and the opportunities—that lie ahead. From compliance to market analysis, our speakers and panelists will share their expert insights with you.

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 biofuels and RINs purchases. If you’re a biofuels producer, you’ll want to know where your opportunities are greatest, as well as how changes in the program will affect your business.

Here are some of the questions that our experts will answer (and don’t forget to come with your own questions for the Q&As that are part of every session!):

  • What do the final 2014 and 2015 biofuels blending mandates mean for the biofuels and RINs markets?
  • EPA’s Quality Assurance Program (QAP) has been in effect for more than a year. Should you buy Q-RINs? Should you back your RINs with QAP certification?
  • Where are the near-term and mid-term opportunities strongest for biodiesel?
  • The US Department of Transportation announced sweeping new rail safety rules in April. What will they mean to the cost and efficiency of moving ethanol by train?

These issues could be make-or-break opportunities for your company—or a major new compliance headache that you need to be prepared to face.

The regulations are complicated—leaving the industry vulnerable to extremely costly fraud and mistakes. Reserve your seat today for this must-attend annual event and get expert instruction on how to legally and successfully comply.
