On May 7, the Chemical Transportation Advisory Committee (CTAC) Biofuels Subcommittee met to examine biofuel and biofuel blend classifications in order to determine if the U.S. Coast Guard should harmonize federal regulations with international classifications. The subcommittee discussed whether to classify biofuels as oil products or as liquid chemicals. The CTAC Biofuels Subcommittee will host conference calls in June and will meet Coast Guard-designed long-term goals by the end of April 2014.
