ABFA sends letter to President Trump opposing proposed decreases to 2018 RVOs  

Friday, October 13, 2017

On October 13, members of the Advanced Biofuels Association (ABFA) sent a letter to President Trump expressing their opposition to the proposals in the EPA’s October 4th  Notice of Data Availability (NODA), which requests comments on “potential options for reductions” on the EPA’s proposed 2018 RVOs under the RFS program.

ABFA members have serious concerns about the NODA given its potential to negatively impact the advanced biofuels industry along with the jobs and economic development that it drives. “The sustainable fuels delivered by these technology companies improve the environment while reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil, and the Administration should be supporting—not undercutting—the industry’s future,” said Michael McAdams, President of the Advanced Biofuels Association.

“ABFA is committed to ensuring that more innovative advanced biofuels are available on the U.S. market each year at affordable prices for American consumers,” furthered McAdams. “Each year, the industry is distributing higher volumes of these innovative fuels delivering 50% reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The annual RVOs under the RFS should reflect this.”

“ABFA members across the entire biodiesel and advanced biofuels commercial chain see this NODA as a significant step backward,” McAdams continued. “ABFA will submit a substantive and data-driven response to EPA’s request for comment.”
