The US Government has mandated the production and usage of biofuels to help reduce dependence on foreign petroleum and to help improve air quality. Partnerships between the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, the pipeline industry, other Federal and State agencies and the emergency first responder community are rapidly addressing infrastructure challenges and removing the technical and regulatory barriers for transporting biofuels. These initiatives are critical for enabling biofuel usage to grow nationwide and reach government production targets. This paper will summarize recent biofuel activities and discuss the progress seen in removing challenges for safely moving biofuels in the pipeline infrastructure.
