RFA pens letter to EPA head

Washington, DC-based lobby the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt, reiterating to the agency head the importance of maintaining current rulemaking schedules, and renewable fuel requirements.

The letter, penned by RFA President Bob Dineen on Monday, encouraged the agency to ensure the 2018 RFS renewable volume obligation (RVO) rulemaking remains on schedule and maintains the conventional renewable fuel requirement at the statutory level of 15 billion gallons.

“The ethanol industry was highly encouraged by your commitment to ‘administer the [RFS] program according to the intent of Congress’ and to keep the program’s rulemakings on schedule,” Dineen wrote, adding that the final 2017 RFS RVO, which was published on schedule in November 2016 setting the conventional biofuel requirement at the statutory level of 15 billion gallons, provided obligated parties and renewable fuel producers ample time to plan and implement strategies helping facilitate compliance with the years standards.
