Feature: Bill throws US biodiesel a lifeline
On 26 June, the US House of Representatives narrowly passed the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 with 219 votes, which includes a national cap-and-trade programme aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The programme is controversial in the US, and the bill had required 218 votes to advance. A compromise was needed, which was negotiated by Collin Peterson, D-Minn., chairman of the House agriculture committee, who has been a harsh critic of the Environmental Protection Agency’s interpretation of indirect land use language included in the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007. Peterson, who hails from Minnesota which has the largest biodiesel production capacity of any other state in the US, was able to have language included in the bill that delays the implementation of the indirect land use policy for several years. He was also successful in having biodiesel plants that were either in operation or under construction at the time EISA was signed into law in December 2007 qualify in meeting the biodiesel portion of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) without being required to meet advanced greenhouse gas reduction targets.
