Addressing the Climate Crisis
Transportation is the largest source of U.S. carbon emissions and it is the economic sector most reliant on petroleum. Biodiesel and renewable diesel are drop-in replacements for petroleum diesel. They are readily available today to reduce carbon intensity in transportation.
Congress is debating several pieces of legislation that will invest public resources in infrastructure improvements for transportation and water. Several proposals include billions of dollars for zero-emission vehicle infrastructure. At the same time,
there is bipartisan legislation that would provide a comparatively modest amount of money ($1 billion) to continue a successful biodiesel infrastructure grant program that has already increased consumer access to better, cleaner fuel by 140 million
