ABFA Responds to EPA Sending the 2014 RFS for OMB Review
Friday, August 22, 2014
In light of EPA sending the final 2014 Renewable Fuel Standard volume requirements to the Office of Management and Budget for interagency review, ABFA has released the following statement attributable to President Michael McAdams.
“A little less than a year ago, press leaks first suggested that EPA might reduce the 2014 renewable fuel standard (RFS) for advanced biofuels to as little as 2.2 billion gallons, which is substantially lower than current production. Since that time, ABFA members and our many allies have clearly demonstrated that such reductions would fall disproportionately on advanced biofuels and represent a significant reversal of the Obama administration’s previous support for our industry. We hope the final rule will be a major improvement and encourage the White House to set RFS volume obligations at levels that are consistent with our industry’s current and projected production capacity for advanced and cellulosic biofuels.”
