Rehagen: Clean fuels industry has never been stronger
The CEO of Clean Fuels Alliance America says production of biodiesel, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel is set to exceed six billion gallons by 2030.
Donnell Rehagen tells Brownfield the industry has never been stronger. “It’s really driven by these decarbonizing markets,” he said. “The rail, marine, heating oil, even the on-road market, trying to figure out how to move people and move goods around this country in a much more sustainable way.”
He says farmers are the heart and soul of renewable fuels production. “I hope they’re proud of themselves because they are the foundation and the core of this industry,” he said. “If we go back 30 years ago, that’s the reason my organization was created was to create value-added for soybean oil.”
Rehagen says producers are now helping pave the way to establish a long-term sustainable aviation fuel market.
He spoke to Brownfield at the 2024 Clean Fuels Conference in Fort Worth, Texas.
