Biofuel and Agriculture Groups Petition EPA Re: Lost RFS Volumes from Small Refinery Exemptions

June 4, 2018

BIO joined other biofuels and agriculture groups in sending a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to convene a proceeding to reconsider the annual Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) equations in 40 C.F.R. § 80.1405(c), Docket No. EPA–HQ–OAR–2005–0161, 75 Fed. Reg. 14,670, 14,867 (Mar. 26, 2010). The letter also asks EPA to convene a proceeding to reconsider the final action entitled “Periodic Reviews for the Renewable Fuel Standard Program,” which was published at 82 Fed. Reg. 58,364 (Dec. 12, 2017).

In the letter, the organizations say EPA’s approach to calculating annual standards has become arbitrary and inadequate, and must be reexamined.
