Webinar: Wood-Based Renewable Diesel in a Midwestern Clean Fuels Policy
April 26th 12:30pm to 2:00pm
The Midwestern clean fuels policy is a proposed market-based and technology-neutral policy with performance-based incentives for any fuel that offers a greenhouse gas advantage, without picking winners or losers. It reduces the use of higher-carbon fuels and supports commercial deployment of lower-carbon fuels, including biofuels, and electricity for electric vehicles. A clean fuels policy in the Midwest could be a game changer for reducing emissions from the transportation sector, the region’s largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
This webinar will discuss how a clean fuels policy can create markets for underutilized wood through the production of wood-based renewable diesel in the Midwest. It will provide attendees opportunities to gain insights from experts in several key areas:
- Hear about the Midwestern Clean Fuels Policy Initiative
- Learn how a clean fuels program can create markets for underutilized wood
- Gain a better understanding of how wood-based renewable diesel pathways would generate credits
- See analysis modeling credit revenues in various scenarios
- Hear from industry representatives on how a clean fuels policy could support wood-based renewable diesel initiatives in the Midwest
