European renewable ethanol producers have launched a new legal challenge, now directed to the EU’s RefuelEU Aviation Regulation, charging that it improperly excludes crop-based biofuels from the effort to reduce GHG emissions from air transport.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem on Feb. 15 signed legislation that allows fuel retailers within the state to claim a fuel tax refund of up to 5 cents per gallon of E15 sold. The tax refund can be claimed for calendar years 2025 through 2029.
At the National Ethanol Conference in San Diego, Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Geoff Cooper told nearly 1,000 attendees that 2024 will be “one of the most pivotal and consequential years the ethanol industry has ever experienced.”
Growth Energy on Feb. 20 submitted comments to CARB regarding the board’s proposed changes to California’s LCFS, noting that the proposed changes ignore plant-based fuel options that could immediately help the state reach its climate goals.

Capturing and storing carbon dioxide in underground wells has the potential to become the most consequential technological deployment in the history of the broader biofuels industry. Deploying effective carbon capture and storage at biofuels plants will cement ethanol and biodiesel as the lowest carbon liquid fuels commercially available in the marketplace. The Carbon Capture & Storage Summit will offer attendees a comprehensive look at the economics of carbon capture and storage, the infrastructure required to make it possible and the financial and marketplace impacts to participating producers.View More
