Since 1981, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has been the un-paralleled voice of the US ethanol industry in washington and around the world. The RFA and its members have been at the main body of every successful policy flight and market initiative that has meaningfully expanded ethanol production and use. RFA secured the ethanol tax incentive and successfully extended it several times. RFA secured the RVP waiver, allowing ethanol to be sold without a specially tailored blend stock in the summer month. RFA’s effort also led to the passage of the small producer tax credit, the cellulosic ethanol tax credit, the blending infrastructure tax credit and the loan guarantee program for advanced technologies. The RFA and its members were a driving force helping to establish the first Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) in 2015.
