Understand the latest challenges surrounding the RFS2 program and how you can spot opportunities in this shifting landscape.

Perhaps never before in its 11-year history has the RFS2 program faced such upheaval as now. Battle lines are being drawn over the program’s future as biofuel producers look to expand market share and refiners seek to reduce their cost of complying with the mandate.

White House efforts to broker a compromise deal are on hold for now and congressional leaders are continuing work on a possible legislation that could bring significant changes to the program. 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 10th Annual RFS2, RINs & Biodiesel Forum and hear from recognized industry experts as they provide insight on must-know topics such as:

  • Will RIN prices remain low or is a rebound coming?
  • How is uncertainty over the program’s future affecting fuel marketers and distributors?
  • What are the prospects for continued growth in biomass-based diesel consumption?
  • What is blockchain and the potential benefits it offers the renewable fuels industry?
  • What changes to the program will Congress propose and can legislation pass?
  • What will the final 2019 Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) look like?
