Forum Offers Info on RFS2, RINs and Biodiesel

John Davis

OPISA forum this fall will offer information on the policy and economic drivers of biofuels supply and demand, and there’s just a few days to register for the early bird rate. OPIS is offering its 6th annual RFS2, RINs and Biodiesel Forum, Oct. 16-17, 2014 in Chicago, in order to help you know more about a range of topics, from compliance to pricing strategies to financing.

If you’re an obligated party such as a refiner or fuels distributor, a biofuels company, or a service provider to the industry, you simply cannot put yourself at risk of potential federal fines of $37,500 per day per violation for non-compliance.

Here are some of the questions that our experts will answer (and don’t forget to come with your own questions for the Q&As that are part of every session!):

What do the final 2014 biofuels blending mandates mean for biofuels
production and prices?
How can obligated parties utilize a Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) to
reduce their compliance burden and risk?
Where are RINs prices headed in the next few months—and next few years?
Can the biodiesel industry thrive without the blenders’ tax credit?
What is the proper course of action to successfully secure financing
for building a biofuels plant?
Has the cellulosic industry finally turned the corner to commercial viability?

In addition, we will provide updates on the major changes taking place in California, under both the Low Carbon Fuel Standard and the state’s Greenhouse Gas Cap-and-Trade program that will sweep in for fuels distributors, starting on January 1, 2015.

The forum also takes a look at Canada’s growing biofuels industry and how it affects and is affected by U.S. biofuels markets and the RFS2 program.
