December 3, 2018 Press Release

Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final rule under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program and set the required amount of biofuels that must be blended in the nation’s fuel supply for 2019 and biomass-based biodiesel for 2020. Although the Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) in today’s rule are a slight improvement from the proposed rule, Congressman Collin C. Peterson (D-Minn.) sees a missed opportunity to reallocate gallons lost due to the so-called hardship waivers. Congressman Peterson serves as one of the Co-chairs of the Congressional Biofuels Caucus.
