RINtrust was formed in 2012 by renewable fuel industry experts with decades of industry experience. Representatives from Frazier, Barnes & Associates, an independent renewable fuels consulting firm, formed RINtrust to provide a professional QAP program based on extensive industry experience. RIN fraud harmed the entire industry and there was a great need for independent third parties fluent in the RFS2 regulations to confirm that biofuel plants were generating valid RINs. RINtrust's goal is to provide economical services that not only ensure the validity of the RINs, but also add significant value to the biofuel facility. Our mass balance approach is quite simple, yet thorough.
