Fuels America held a webinar with industry stakeholders about the future of the Renewable Fuel Standard.
Under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program in the Clean Air Act, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets annual biofuel blending requirements in accordance with volumes determined by Congress through 2022. After 2022, in a rulemaking commonly referred to as “The Set,” the EPA is required to establish volume requirements for 2023 and beyond according to a specific set of factors in the law. Under a consent decree in the matter of Growth Energy v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA is required to propose volumes for 2023 no later than November 16, 2022 and finalize them no later than June 14, 2023.
