Stephanie Batchelor, vice president of BIO's Industrial and Environmental Section, released the following statement in reaction to the Trump administration's move to issue Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) waivers for the 2019 compliance year.

“This action by the outgoing administration is beyond egregious. More than ever, as we look to improve the public health of our nation and build a 21st century green economy we must support the development of sustainable fuels to clean up our air and bring back jobs. BIO will work closely with the Biden administration and Congress to restore the integrity of the RFS and build off of this policy to establish a national low carbon fuel standard that will foster green energy breakthroughs and decarbonize transportation.”
