Renewable Fuel Groups Respond To API Lawsuit On RFS

The American Petroleum Institute has filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals challenging EPA’s renewable fuel volume requirements for 2013.  Renewable Fuel Association’s Vice President of Research and Analysis Geoff Cooper says this is just another attempt by the oil industry to get rid of the RFS.

Cooper says API challenged the RFS volume requirements in 2011 and 2012 and failed to prove their case. He says their focusing part of their attack on cellulosic ethanol which also doesn’t make sense.

Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says the Petroleum Institute is desperate in their attempt to discredit the RFS and will stop at nothing including frivolous lawsuits to try and keep their monopolistic control of the country’s fuels.

The American Petroleum Institute is charging EPA’s ethanol mandate is unrealistic and is simply bad policy.
