Yes! I want more information

The RFS2 program has gone through a tumultuous two years and more changes are coming that could fundamentally affect the program’s course as EPA works on rules to reset advanced biofuel targets and to define the shape of the RFS2 after 2022.

With the 2020 election season already underway, questions remain about how the White House will stake out positions in attempt to satisfy both refiners and the politically important Midwest on key issues such as small refinery waivers and the upcoming 2020 Renewable Volume Obligation (RVO).

Now, more than ever before, it is critical that you understand what may happen to the program and how potential changes could affect your business.

Attend the 11th Annual RFS2, RINs & Biodiesel Forum and hear from recognized industry experts as they provide insights on must-know topics such as:

  • If RIN prices will continue to recover from multi-years lows or retreat and why
  • How year-round E15 sales will affect ethanol volumes and RIN prices
  • Prospects for continued growth in biomass-based diesel consumption
  • If EPA efforts to reform RINs trading are over or are more changes on the way
  • What to expect from EPA’s planned RFS reset and set rules and when they will take affect
  • A deeper look at the legal landscape for the program
