John Deere adds RIN management to software

By | October 06, 2008
John Deere Agri Services has incorporated the use of a renewable identification numbers (RINs) registry into its trademarked Agris V9 business management software. The Clean Fuels Clearinghouse is allowing Agris users access to its RIN management capabilities and will enable them to connect seamlessly with Clean Fuels' RINSTAR Renewable Fuel Registry.

The tracking and managing of RINs have been issues for many biofuels producers since the U.S. EPA mandated the use of RINs as a method to track the amount of domestically produced biofuels. Compliance is mandatory, but there is no type of federally regulated method for tracking and regulating numbers. Clean Fuels is the only RIN registry in the United States.
