More than 70 biofuel stakeholders are calling on the Biden administration to increase biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuels volumes as the EPA is expected to finalize Renewable Fuel Standard volumes next week.
Paul Winters with Clean Fuel Alliance America tells Brownfield the industry produces more fuel than what the current RFS proposal calls for. “It’s going to undercut the price of Rims. It’s going to discourage production. It’s going to undermine investments that our industry has made in producing new feedstocks and building new facilities, research and development on new fuels and new markets.”
Clean Fuels and 75 other organizations sent President Joe Biden a letter Thursday asking him to ensure that the Environmental Protection Agency increase biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuel volumes by 500 million gallons.
