RFS: New Revenue Stream for Biomass Facilities?

Submitted by on April 11, 2017 – 6:11 pmNo Comment

by Bob Cleaves (Biomass Power Association/Biomass Magazine)  … Unbeknownst to many in the biomass power sector, there may be a role for biomass power producers to play in the RFS. Electric vehicles (EVs) represent an increasing share of the automotive market, with sales rising 37 percent in 2016 over the previous year. Bloomberg New Energy Finance projects that this trend will continue—in 2040, EVs will account for 35 percent of all new vehicles sold. But the only way that electric vehicles are truly carbon friendly is if their power comes from a nonfossil fuel source. If EVs are powered by electricity produced from a biomass—the same ingredients that go into liquid transportation fuels—shouldn’t those biomass facilities be eligible to sell the same credits awarded to, for example, ethanol producers?

The last hurdle for biomass power producers to take part in the RFS program is for the EPA to make a final ruling in our favor, and create a pathway for biomass power producers to sell RIN credits. READ MORE and MORE (Columbus Dispatch) and MORE (Utility Dive)
