The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held a media call to announce the final volume requirements (RVOs) under the Renewable Fuel Standard program for 2014, 2015 and 2016. The EPA also discussed the final RVOs for biomass-based diesel for 2014-2017.
On the call was Janet McCabe, acting Assistant Administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation who noted, technologies for advanced biofuels have not developed as fast as Congress anticipated. She said the final rules were designed to go beyond the blend wall as Congress intended and are a blend of legislative intentions and real-world circumstances.
