The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released a Notice of Data Availability concerning potential further reductions in the 2018 Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs) for biodiesel, advanced biofuel, and total renewable fuel. The proposal would slash biodiesel volumes for 2018 by as much as 315 million gallons, which could in-turn effectively reduce the proposed volumes of advanced and total renewable biofuels by 473 million gallons.
Biofuels are moving America forward by delivering homegrown fuel that lowers greenhouse gas emissions, supports American jobs, and saves drivers money at the pump. Any reduction in renewable biofuel blending is a step backward for the United States.
Support clean, renewable biofuels today and keep the RFS moving forward, not backward, by sending your comments to the EPA! The deadline to submit comments is October 19, 2017.
