Biodiesel Production Still Increasing Despite Tax Credit Expiration

Through the first nine months of 2017, U.S. biodiesel production levels were slightly higher than 2016 levels, despite the expiration of a federal biodiesel blender's tax credit at the end of 2016. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), domestic biodiesel production may continue to increase because of changes to import policies such as those recently announced by the U.S. Department of Commerce on biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia.

Biodiesel production increased over time largely because of state and federal incentives. The federal biodiesel blender's tax credit, valued at $1 per gallon, expired several times prior to 2016, most recently at the end of 2014. In those earlier years, Congress ultimately voted to reinstate the tax credit retroactively.
