Growth Energy And Two Other Groups Intervening In RFS Volume Case

Growth Energy And Two Other Groups Intervening In RFS Volume Case

Growth Energy, Renewable Fuel Association and Bio Tech Industry groups have filed a motion to intervene in a U.S. Court of Appeals case involving the 2013 RFS volume requirements.  Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says they’re trying to counter the Oil Industry which is challenging the rule in hopes of getting rid of the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Buis is cautiously optimistic about their chances of winning the court case.

Buis says the three groups intervening on EPA’s behalf want the court to re affirm and earlier court decision in January of this year. That decision upheld EPA’s authority to set advanced and cellulosic biofuel volume obligations at the maximum achievable level.
