US EIA Releases New Monthly Biofuels Data
The U.S. Energy Information Administration on March 25 said it will release expanded monthly biofuels data through a new report – the Monthly Biofuels Capacity and Feedstocks Update. The first report, released on March 31, contained January 2021 data. EIA also said it will also modify petroleum and biofuel volumetric balances in the interactive supply and disposition summary data table in its Petroleum Navigator.
“We developed the Monthly Biofuels Capacity and Feedstocks Update because of the significant growth in U.S. production of renewable fuels,” said EIA Acting Administrator Stephen Nalley in a statement. “The new data will help our data users better track production capacities and feedstock consumption for biofuels, which will increase understanding of the effects of biofuels on the energy industry and our economy.”
