Renewable Fuel for Ocean-Going Vessels Act introduced in U.S. Senate – Voice Of Muscatine


Renewable Fuel for Ocean-Going Vessels Act introduced in U.S. Senate

A bill in the U.S. Senate would help international shipping companies increase their use of low-carbon fuels.

Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio says the legislation allows biodiesel producers to generate RIN credits on ocean-going vessels. He tells Brownfield this would help the international shipping industry meet its carbon reduction goals.

“It’s every way that we can reach those goals,” Brown said. “It’s every way we can expand markets for Ohio farmers and Midwestern farmers.”

The Renewable Fuel for Ocean-Going Vessels Act designates renewable fuel used in ocean-going vessels as an “additional renewable fuel” (similar to jet fuel) under the Renewable Fuel Standard.
