    Why do we need biodiesel?

    Surely you've seen the cost of oil rise to $140+ per barrel to stabilize at $100+ per barrel for a number of consecutive years. Besides the cost, those who use it are renewable humans who are increasing in population - globally. Recent glut in oil and gas is not renewable. The start of a renewable energy industry is needed. Incidentally, the US Navy is leading the way by helping develop an industry for using not biodiesel but renewable diesel (2nd and 3rd generation technology which converts non-food sources into fuel) as they did back in the early 1900s when the navy shifted from using coal powered/steam ships to using more capable powered diesel fueled warships (Great White Fleet). Back then the Coal, Electric, even the horse and buggy industries were asking why subsidize oil we have plenty of coal and horses. Similar but uniquely different today in a foreseeable need for cleaner burning fuels not only due to unhealthy atmospheric conditions caused by dirty energy production but a renewing humanity depends on renewable sources of important stuff it has come to rely on - livestock, crops, and of course fuel. A dirty and depleting source for petroleum based fuel sounds foolish to rely on despite this recent glut. "We" (humanity today and future generations) will benefit with the start of a renewable industry which will continue to grow with maturity for generations to come. Go Navy! Subsidizing renewable fuel production is not only smart but actually makes economic sense. Smarter chemical systems.

    REGI managed to make a good positive net margin in 2014 without the whopping $1 tax credit. Tax extenders passing authorizes REGI to receive an extra 300 million dollar (approx) refund due to REGI's 2014's production from the IRS.

    It's crazy to think REGI bought the entire SYNM company for less than this 2014 tax extenders windfall. Profit from Geismar's revenue will payback REGI's purchase price in less than a year. Depends on how much money REGI had to spend to get the geismar plant up and running to REGI's standards.

    In recent past, Republicans bashed biofuels, including the navy's push for creating a biofuels industry saying biofuels were too expensive. Drill baby drill was the republican mantra when it came to energy. I don't see when or why Republicans changed their position to support biofuel production for the long term.

    Anyway, All I care about is REGI's renewable business and PPS to go up and up. The sooner the better.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Sunset this year. I was hoping extenders for biofuel would be pushed out a good twenty years. Oh well, REGI produces over a billion gallons a year now. Nice windfall cometh?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
