BIO Comments on RFS Standards for 2019 and Biomass-Based Diesel Volumes for 2020

August 17, 2018

BIO submitted comments on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) proposed rule, Renewable Fuel Standard Program: Standards for 2019 and Biomass-Based Diesel Volume for 2020.

BIO members are improving conventional biofuel processes, furthering advanced and cellulosic biofuel production technologies, and speeding development of new energy crops – and the Renewable Fuel Standard has been vital to the growth of the industry in the United States. However, the proposed rule creates uncertainty for the biofuels industry. While BIO supports EPA’s decision to raise the advanced and cellulosic biofuel volumes in the proposed rule, these increases will be undercut by the continued issuance of Small Refinery Exemptions (SRE) without reallocating gallons to other obligated parties.

BIO says it’s critical the final rule for the 2019 Renewable Fuel Standard Renewable Volume Obligations (RFS RVO) follow the letter and intent of the law and urges EPA to resolve the barriers keeping advanced and cellulosic biofuels from accessing the market.
