"The record performance resulting from strong margins in the biofuel segment and continued solid performance from our chemical segment is gratifying," said Lee Mikles, FutureFuel president. "Like the rest of the biofuel industry, we realize the importance that continued support from our legislatures in the Renewable Fuel Mandate and the federal blenders' credit has on our biodiesel business. The 2014 RVO requirement is scheduled to be released by the EPA at any time, followed by a comment period, which should give the industry more clarity. The chemical pipeline of potential new custom products continues to be strong. We continue to endeavor to replace or rejuvenate our older existing chemicals and are diligently working in that direction."
