Ethanol Report on EPA RFS Notice

The Environmental Protection Agency released its proposed Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) renewable volume obligations (RVOs) for 2018 on July 5, the comment period just ended on August 31, and then this week EPA gave notice that it is seeking comment on options for further reductions in the biomass-based diesel, advanced biofuel and total renewable fuel volumes.

Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) president and CEO Bob Dinneen says this has never happened before. “This is a new town with new rules but this one sort of has me scratching my head a little bit,” said Dinneen.
