PA Dept. Of Agriculture Temporary Suspension Of Requirement For 2% Biodiesel For Out-Of-State Fuel Sold In PA Expires July 26
On June 17, 2022, the Department of Agriculture announced the suspension of the 2 percent biodiesel content mandate on diesel fuel sold for on-road use imposed under section 3(a)(1) of the Biofuel Development and In-State Production Incentive Act (73 P.S. § 1650.3(a)(1)) for out-of-state fuel sold in the Commonwealth.
The suspension shall be effective Monday, June 27, 2022 until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, July 26, 2022, subject to certain conditions outlined below.
The suspension was made in response to a request made under section 5(d) of the Act (73 P. S. § 1650.5(d)), which authorizes PDA, in consultation with the Department of Environmental Protection to suspend or modify to reduce the mandated content required by section 1650.3(a)(1) of the Act if PDA determines that doing so is warranted by factors, including but not limited to, substantially increased costs to consumers or insufficient quantity or distribution of biodiesel.
