As governments continue their attempts to lower emissions in line with international targets, demand for biofuels is increasing significantly. Global biofuels output is expected to rise by more than 3mn b/d in the next five years, and such rapid growth means that new threats and opportunities are constantly emerging. Staying on top of the ever-changing biofuels landscape is becoming more challenging.

Argus biofuels coverage includes price assessments and key insights into regional biodiesel, ethanol and feedstock markets, along with updates on changing legislation, long-term market fundamentals and the latest market-moving news.

Argus Americas Biofuels Renewable Volume Obligation (RVO)

Argus’ RVO assessments are a measure of an obligated party’s cost per US gallon of meeting its obligations under the EPA’s RFS2 by purchasing RINs in the spot market. Argus publishes RVO costs for the current and previous compliance years. RVO costs are calculated by weighting Argus’ RIN assessments for the named compliance year according to the EPA’s percentage requirements for the same compliance year.
