The article discusses the launch of the second version of the Renewable Fuels Standards (RFS2) programs which creates the requirement for biodiesel use particularly in Texas. Created under the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 2005, RFS sets the foundation for attaining significant reductions of green house gas emissions from the use of renewable fuels and for reducing imported petroleum. RFS program and Renewable Identification Numbers (RIN) aim to motivate the purchase and blending of biodiesel.
