BIO's comments to U.S. EPA on the Tier 3 Motor Vehicle Emission Fuel Standards.
May 23 2013
BIO is pleased to comment on the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce’s (Committee) second Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) assessment white paper reviewing the RFS’s agricultural sector impacts.
April 23 2013
BIO appreciates the opportunity to comment on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) draft guidance for E85 Flexible Fuel Vehicle Weighting Factor for Model Years 2016-2019 Vehicles Under the Light-Duty Greenhouse Gas Emissions Program (draft guidance).
August 27 2012
We are writing to caution against granting a waiver for the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). A number of groups and some governors seem to believe that the RFS is a substantial part of the equation when it comes to grain prices, and waiving the program this year or next will ease the impact of the drought on consumers. There is substantial evidence to the contrary.
July 31 2014
BIO welcomes USDA’s release of the report  Quantifying Greenhouse Gas Fluxes in Agriculture and Forestry: Methods for Entity-Scale Inventory, which outlines science-based methods for quantifying changes in carbon emissions and storage at the local farm and forest operation
June 2 2014
The Obama administration's Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units missed an opportunity to give industry clear guidance that using sustainable biomass mitigates greenhouse gas emissions by recycling atmospheric carbon.
May 7 2014
Decreasing use of biofuels will automatically increase use of more carbon intensive petroleum sources. The increased emissions from the transportation sector would come very close to wiping out the reductions of the past four years, according to a BIO study.
January 28 2014
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lacks authority to waive the overall 2014 volume requirements for the Renewable Fuel Standard, particularly when production and supply of advanced biofuels continues to grow, BIO emphasized in official comments filed today.

The 10th Annual World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology will host the Clean Tech Investor Sessions featuring innovative industrial biotechnology companies selected to present to an elite audience of investors and analysts.
