A new partnership has been formed to give the biofuel industry Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) solutions. The National Association of Shell Marketers and RINAlliance have partnered to aid petroleum marketers with renewable fuel blending and EPA compliance matters.
“RINAlliance is extremely excited and honored to have the support and endorsement of the National Association of Shell Marketers and we look forward to playing a role in the success of its fuel distributors,” said Dawn Carlson, president of RINAlliance, Inc. “NASM understands the regulatory burdens of petroleum marketers and recognizes the value RINAlliance brings to its members.”
As the past few months have demonstrated, RIN values are the driving factor when it comes to renewable fuel blending. The positive economics are easily assessed and the ultra-competitive petroleum industry has taken notice of blending benefits.
Jennifer Richards, president of NASM, added, “Our marketers across the U.S. benefit from the consulting expertise of RINAlliance as their professionals have the longest and most successful track record in understanding RINs and serving the needs of renewable fuel blenders.”
RINAlliance has established a network of qualified renewable fuel producers by working with EcoEngineers to qualify production and RINs. According to RINAlliance, this network allows its blenders access to top tier pricing of their RINs through negotiated contracts with obligated parties while protecting them from regulatory perils.
