Ethanol Executive Disappointed With EPA 2014 Volume Proposal

Ethanol Executive Disappointed With EPA 2014 Volume Proposal

Today, the Environmental Protection Agency released its proposed 2014 renewable volume obligations for the renewable fuel standard, which if finalized would cut ethanol use below levels called for in the law.  EPA is asking refiners in 2014 to blend 15.2 billion gallons of renewable fuel into gasoline. That is about 16 percent less than what Congress called for in the 2007 renewable fuels law. American Coalition for Ethanol Executive Vice President Brian Jennings says if the proposal stands, they make take it to court.

He says this proposal if it stands will be costly for consumers.

Jennings says EPA is on thin ice for the legal rational they used in making their decision to lower the volume requirements.
