Biodiesel Supporters Testify Against EPA RFS Volume Requirement Proposal

Biodiesel Supporters Testify Against EPA RFS Volume Requirement Proposal

Thursday, a group of nearly two dozen Biodiesel Industry representatives testified at an EPA hearing on their 2014 RFS volume requirement proposal. National Biodiesel Board’s Vice President of Federal Affairs Anne Steckel says they want EPA to throw out their plan and raise the renewable volume levels. She says if EPA’s plan stands it will send a devastating signal to investors and threaten future growth in the biodiesel industry.

Steckel says EPA’s proposal if left to stand will cause layoffs and plant closures across the country.

Steckel says what’s frustrating about EPA’s proposal is that biodiesel is an RFS success story, creating clean energy jobs the Obama administration has been pushing for.
