S&P Global Platts Webinar: From RIN to RVO: How renewable fuels impact refined products

Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS) have reshaped refined product markets throughout the US and are now a consideration for every barrel produced, imported or exported. With potential changes to the program making headlines every week, we examine the historical relationship and potential future of RFS and refined products.

Join S&P Global Platts on Thursday, June 28, 2018, at 10 am CDT for an interactive webinar: From RIN to RVO: How renewable fuels impact refined products.

During the webinar, Joshua Brown, Editor, US Gasoline Markets, S&P Global Platts and Westley Swift, Associate Editor, Americas Biofuels, S&P Global Platts will discuss the future of RFS and refined products through the US market.

The webinar will cover:

  • RINs and RVO: an explanation

  • How renewable fuels fit into refined product markets

  • Record-breaking US refined product exports

  • Is E15 going to ‘fix’ the RFS?

  • Q&A

Platts webinars are free to attend; all you need to do is register. If you can't make it to the live production, you can still view Platts webinars on-demand at your convenience.
