ABFA Applauds EPA Heating Oil Rule  

Tuesday, September 24, 2013


(Washington, DC) – Today, Michael McAdams, president of the Advanced Biofuels Association made the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) expanded definition of heating oil, which will encourage the growth of renewable fuel production:

“The Advanced Biofuels Association applauds EPA for expanding the definition of heating oil to include renewable fuel oil used to warm buildings or other facilities where people live, work or recreate. This newly expanded definition will help sustain growing renewable fuel production, particularly of advanced or cellulosic biofuels, in the heating oil market.  This rule will allow actual gallons of advanced and cellulosic heating oil to be delivered this year to the market. The change also underscores EPA’s continued leadership administering the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program.”
