This week the EPA came out with a sweeping new proposal to limit greenhouse gas emissions and cut carbon pollution from the nation’s power plants by 2030. American Coalition for Ethanol Executive Vice President BrIan Jennings says EPA is allowed to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act with the Renewable Fuel Standard an important part of that. He says the best way to limit greenhouse gases is by restoring the R-F-S.
Jennings says if EPA’s goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with this new proposal then they need to make sure oil companies obey the RFS so those emissions are lowered.
He says EPA isn’t holding oil companies feet to the fire when it comes to following the RFS and obeying the Clean Water Act.
Jennings expects EPA to issue a decision on the RFS volume requirements either late this month or in early July.
