International Trade Commission Moves Closer to Imposing Duties on Biodiesel Imports

The U.S. International Trade Commission on Dec. 5 made a final finding that biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia harm U.S. producers. The decision, coupled with last month's final countervailing duties determination by the Department of Commerce, paves the way for final countervailing duties orders by the end of December. NATSO disagrees with the outcome, preferring free trade policies, and maintains that limiting fuel marketers' access to supply from overseas will raise retail fuel prices. The decision does, however, obviate the need for Congress to convert the biodiesel tax credit from a blender credit to a producer credit, as this change was designed to limit imports in the first place.
