Biodiesel Legislation Passes in the Rhode Island House and Senate
Biodiesel Products (H5132/S357) Sub A was unopposed in both the House and Senate committees and continued to both Chamber floors for vote and passage. Thanks to our sponsors Representative Deb Ruggiero and Senator V. Susan Sosnowski for their support the bill is now on its way to the Governor’s desk to be signed. The major benefits that made this bill happen include:
Common Sense Legislation
The bill aligns with the evolution and the direction of our industry, including the Providence Resolution that improved the industry’s environmental profile by committing to net-zero emissions by 2050.
Working towards better air quality with biodiesel products has multifold benefits for public health, the economy, and the environment.
Supports a Green Economy
Biodiesel products turn waste into renewable energy, using byproducts that would otherwise go to landfills and are delivered by multi-generational businesses that provide comfort to communities and highly skilled trade careers.
Aligns with Related Legislation
Supports the statutory requirements of the 2021 Act on Climate signed into law on April 10, 2021. Economy-wide enforceable targets for greenhouse gas emissions reductions as follows: 10% below 1990 levels by 2020, 45% below 1990 levels by 2030, 80% below 1990 levels by 2040, and net-zero emissions by 2050. Additionally, increasing the renewable content of heating fuel through this bill helps Rhode Island meet its greenhouse gas emission statutory requirements and study results stated in the 2019 Executive Order 19-06.
Energy diversity and security are essential to the health and wellbeing of all and we are excited to see this bill pass to help our state, our businesses, and our customers.
