Methes Energies selects Genscape as biodiesel RIN QAP provider
Methes Energies International Ltd. announced that it has selected Genscape Inc. as its Quality Assurance Plan provider for biodiesel RIN verification.
Genscape's robust program is registered with the U.S. EPA and ensures Methes Energies' RINs will maintain a high standard for quality and reliability while providing the flexibility to offer both QAP-A and QAP-B RINs. The EPA is set to implement a quality assurance program for RINs generated on biofuels produced at foreign facilities and imported into the U.S. as well as for U.S. facilities that generate their own RINs. The EPA expects the program to promote greater liquidity in the transfer and use of RINs, especially for smaller producers.
Nicholas Ng, president of Methes Energies, said, “As our production is set to increase at our Sombra facility combined with the fact that Methes Energies is now approved as an importer of record, we felt that the timing was right to get our QAP program in place. Genscape has the experience and the credibility to make sure that our production and generation of RINs meet all EPA requirements.”
Susan Olson, vice president of agriculture and biofuels at Genscape, added, “Genscape is excited to add Methes Energies to our growing list of QAP clients and looks forward to working with an innovative company like Methes Energies to promote quality and transparency in the industry.”
