Biofuels Promotion

Archived: 01/01/2015

The Biofuels Study Commission (Commission) was established to study the feasibility and effectiveness of incentives that promote the development and use of advanced biofuels in the state, including production credits, feedstock incentives, and direct use consumer credits. The Commission will also explore the possibility of entering into an agreement with the states participating in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative to develop and implement a low carbon fuel standard for transportation fuels. The Commission must report results and recommendations to the General Assembly at least every two years beginning January 2012. (Reference Rhode Island General Laws 31-36.2)
