Biofuel Sends Letter to EPA Administrator Pruitt on 2019 Cellulosic Volumes

February 15, 2018

BIO and U.S. biofuel and agriculture organizations sent a letter to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt on the proposed 2019 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Renewable Volume Obligation (RVO), and particularly the agency’s policy on commercial-ready cellulosic biofuels.

The letter asks EPA to give closer attention to cellulosic ethanol made from corn kernel fiber to bring significant and immediate economic, environmental, and energy security benefits. An overly conservative corn kernel fiber ethanol projection, compounded with uncertainty around how quickly EPA will approve new corn kernel fiber ethanol technologies for D3 RIN generation, threatens to slow adoption of cellulosic production capacity at existing ethanol facilities across the country.
