The ABFA urges EPA to increase the proposed Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs) for 2023 – 2025 to accurately reflect the volumes of advanced, biomass-based diesel, and cellulosic pools available in the market.
The EPA has the power to make real progress in reducing carbon emissions by implementing an RFS that appropriately rewards advanced biofuels delivering up to 80% fewer emissions than fossil fuels. By revising its proposal to accurately reflect the market, EPA can pave the way for a cleaner, greener future. The members of the ABFA call on Congress to reform the RFS to better reward fuels that deliver higher emissions reductions, and to speed its regulatory approval process as innovative fuels, feedstocks, and technology pathways come to market. In absence of congressional action, ABFA encourages the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to make a number of adjustments to the RFS under its current statutory authority.
