Heard on the Floor at ABLC 2017 – Day 2

Submitted by on March 6, 2017 – 12:22 pmNo Comment

by Helena Tavares Kennedy (Biofuels Digest)  ABLC guests heard Governor Paul LePage from Maine invite all of us to his beautiful Northern state that has many existing and promising biomass projects and even backyard farms that grow tomatoes year round in that chilly Maine weather believe it or not. His optimism continued with the first panel of the day including the “Fantastic 5” who all agreed on the need for policy stability, tax credits and tax reforms. Positive numbers were thrown around – 4.2 million American jobs in biobased products, and $393 million economic value added.

BIO’s Brent Erickson: Removing RFS would cause a $22.4 billion shortfall in investment.
NBB’s Steckel: Tax reform is a priority especially given current policy uncertainty.
ABFA’s McAdams: shifting point of obligation would turn RFS upside down
ABBC’s Coleman: Industry needs to stay at the negotiating table despite alarm over Administration.
BRAG’s Roberts: Work on implementing legislation needs to be a priority too at EPA.
Reverdia’s Lubben: “biobased product development is like Ironman triathlons”.
Capricorn’s Pettersen: “Yes, but marathons you have to sprint.”
RJ’s Molchanov: Oil headed for $70 in 2017.
Amyris: Broke ground on new plant in Brazil.   READ MORE
