Clean fuels, RFS stakeholders send letter to President Biden on RFS BBD volumes

NAFB News Service

Clean Fuels Alliance America and 75 industry stakeholders delivered a letter to President Joe Biden on Thursday.

The letter urges the president to ensure that the Environmental Protection Agency substantially increases the biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuels volumes in the Renewable Fuel Standards for 2023, 2024 and 2025.

The letter points out that EPA’s proposed volumes fall far below the industry’s current production and, if finalized, would undermine investments in the industry’s expansion.

The EPA is expected to finalize the RFS volumes by June 14.

The letter states, “The low volumes threaten the ability of new market sectors, like marine and aviation, to decarbonize in the near term.”

Clean Fuels was joined in the letter by several national industry associations and their members, including American Soybean Association, 22 state soybean associations, Diesel Technology Forum, National Energy and Fuels Institute, National Oilseed Processors Association, North American Renderers Association, and U.S. Canola Association.
