Pennsylvania's Energy Independence Strategy Moves Forward

The Pennsylvania Biodiesel Producers Group (PABPG) is a trade organization formed to serve as a unified voice of advocacy on behalf of in-state biodiesel producers across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  The PABPG serves as a clearinghouse for information regarding the business, environmental, and energy policy benefits of biodiesel and the critical role that biodiesel plays in the future of Pennsylvania's energy strategy.

Update - Pennsylvania Governor Announces Biodiesel Mandate

January 15, 2009 - Governor Edward G. Rendell held a press conference to announce activation of a new state mandate requiring all diesel fuel pumped in Pennsylvania to contain at least 2% biodiesel.  As a part of the alternative energy legislation passed in the summer of 2008, when Pennsylvania biodiesel producers reached a threshold of 40 million gallons produced, the state would institute a mandate calling for a 2% blend of biodiesel. The 40 million gallon annual benchmark has been reached and by the beginning of 2010 the mandate will be in full effect.  This announcement will move the Commonwealth toward replacing the one billion gallons of foreign oil that are imported to Pennsylvania each year by driving utilization of domestic, renewable fuels.
