In 2022 Clean Fuels Foundation hosted or supported three Congressional Tours. The first was in New York City, second in Iowa, and the third in California. Between the three tours the Foundation was able to show almost 60 Congressional staffers the complete biodiesel/renewable diesel value chain. Tour included presentations on and visits to feedstocks producer. This included soybean farms, animal rendering, and used cooking oil. Tour also included visiting facilities where feedstocks are turned into biodiesel and renewable diesel and information was shared on how biodiesel and renewable diesel are distributed to end user.
During the tours, staffers saw how federal policies such as the BTC and the RFS are important to all parts of the country, not just the Midwest.
The Foundation wants to thank our sponsors who made these events possible: AGP, Western Dubuque Biodiesel, Minnesota Soybean Processors, Western Iowa Energy, Chevron REG, Incobrasa, HeroBX, and RBF. We would also like to thank all who hosted events and provided presenters and tour guides.
