Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Trump administration could be a bend in the road for biofuels blending

December 05, 2016 (13:45 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

Total renewable fuel is slated to be more than 10% of the US fuel supply in 2017, breaking through the so-called blendwall. But how will a new presidential administration affect targets for the Renewable Fuel Standard?

Senior oil editors Meghan Gordon and Brian Scheid talk to ClearView Energy Partners analyst Tim Cheung about implications of biofuel piercing the blendwall and scenarios for how the Trump administration might try to change the RFS. Platts biofuels editor Josh Pedrick also joins to discuss how RINs prices have surged since the EPA announced the 2017 targets.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol. E-mail the editors at brian.scheid@spglobal.com and meghan.gordon@spglobal.com.
