EPA set bio-based diesel volume for 2013
September 15, 2012
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency took action to establish the amount of bio-diesel products required to be included in diesel fuel markets in 2013. Bio-based diesel products are advanced bio-fuels that are derived from sources that include vegetable oils and wastes oils from renewable sources.
“This action, which meets goals designated by Congress, is another step that strengthens America’s energy security by reducing dependence on foreign oil,” said EPA administrator Lisa P. Jackson.
