FEATURE: Biojet Backers See US RINs Eligibility as Vital to Long-Term Viability

Submitted by on May 7, 2013 – 1:50 pmNo Comment

by Herman Wang and Matthew Kolhman (Platts)  Aviation biofuel’s newly minted ability to generate tradable US renewables credits, known as RINs, may be key to the industry’s economics, according to market watchers.

“The availability of RINs is a critical bridge to commercial viability,” Nancy Young, vice president of environmental affairs for US airline trade group Airlines for America, said in a recent interview.

“It means there is an economic value assigned to the renewable content in jet fuel that can help the producer of that fuel get closer to the price of traditional jet fuel,” Young said.

…Depending on how it’s made and how much of a reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions it provides, biojet can be eligible for either D4 biodiesel, D5 advanced biofuel or D7 cellulosic diesel RINs.

…Brooke Coleman, executive director of the Advanced Ethanol Council, said RINs are key to that.

“What the RIN value does is it creates an incentive to buy and trade this fuel,” he said. “The whole reason we need the RFS is because we can show up with a cheaper better fuel, but it doesn’t necessarily get it into the marketplace because it’s so vertically integrated. RINs make sure the renewable fuel is used in an economically efficient way.”  READ MORE
