EPA Data Shows Waivers Have Lowered RFS Obligations

An analysis of EPA data by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) shows that small refinery exemptions for 2016 and 2017 have cost at least 1.6 billion gallons of biofuels in lost blending obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The volume of lost blending obligations for these two years is 10 times the collective volume of lost volume from 2013-2015.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue acknowledged the loss during a hearing before the Senate Agriculture Committee Tuesday when asked about the EPA waivers.
