Supporters and opponents of ethanol are both anxiously awaiting a decision from the EPA on the 2014 RFS volume requirements.  American Coalition for Ethanol Executive Vice President Brian Jennings of Sioux Falls says his group is hoping to get more details about that decision during next month’s ethanol conference in Minneapolis. He says they’ll be hearing from EPA’s director of fuel programs Paul Machiele at the meeting which runs August 5 and 6.

Jennings says while the numbers in the volume requirements are important to the ethanol industry, the methodology EPA uses to arrive at those are even more important.

Jennings says with EPA already missing their own self-imposed deadline for getting the RFS rule out and with Congress poised to take their August recess, he doesn’t expect a final decision on the rule until sometime in September.
