N.J. Man Sentenced to 5 Years Prison for Biodiesel Fraud

(Reuters)  The owner of a New Jersey feedstock processor was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in a scheme that generated fraudulent tax and renewable fuel credits, the U.S. Department of Justice said on Friday.

In addition to the prison term, Malek Jalal, owner of Unity Fuels, was ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution in a scheme that involved more than $7 million worth of fraudulent tax credits and renewable fuel credits known as RINs, the Justice Department said.

Jalal bought fuel from a company based in New York, blended it with other materials and then sold it back to the same company, the Justice Department said.
