The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is probably driving more business in the biogas industry today than any other policy or industry driver. Yet, using it quickly gets very complicated and navigating the politics around those complexities can be even more daunting. In a half-day, the ABC will quickly touch on the basics of the RFS for anyone that needs a refresher and then we'll dive right into the details that matter to anyone who wants to use the RFS to drive more revenue to their biogas project, including policy intel, determining the D3/D5 split and more.
