As our members and industry supporters communicate with Washington policy makers, the media, and the public, NBB provides the resources to the right and works with them to amplify these points:
- Over the first decade of California’s Low Carbon Fuel Program, biodiesel and renewable diesel have generated more cumulative carbon credits than any other low-carbon fuel option.
- For each of the last three years, biodiesel and renewable diesel accounted for 45 percent of California’s transportation sector carbon reductions.
- In 2019, Oregon achieved 46 percent of its transportation carbon reductions by using 76.8 million gallons of biodiesel and renewable diesel.
- Nationwide biofuel use under the Renewable Fuel Standard cut carbon emissions by as much as 579 million metric tons over the first decade of the program. That success far exceeds the 422 million metric ton estimate from EPA at the start of the program.
