Opinions divided on 2018 USA renewable fuel requirements

EPA announces final 2018 RVO numbers under RFS

Advanced biofuel is set for 4.29 billion gallons, including 288 million gallons of cellulosic biofuel.

The cellulosic standard is one area lowered for 2018.

POET CEO Jeff Broin today responded to the EPA's final rule on the 2018 Renewable Volume Obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard.

"The biofuels industry will rise or fall together, and thus we are disappointed the final rule is not more aggressive with regard to other advanced biofuels such as biodiesel", RFA President Bob Dinneen said in a statement.

The agency will also require fuel companies to blend 2.1 billion gallons of biodiesel for 2019, in line with the July proposal and steady with the previous year, according to the report, which cited an unnamed EPA official. The agency noted that the final renewable fuel standards for 2018 and biomass-based diesel volumes for 2019 differ slightly from the limits it proposed earlier this year.

Iowa congressional delates say the EPA's final rule on Renewable Fuel Standard volumes don't take advantage of the industry's potential for biofuel production.

This has been a tumultuous year for the biofuels industry, and for Midwest Republicans who backed President Donald Trump.

"It appears that EPA did exactly what Sen". We are an global producer of biomass-based diesel, a developer of renewable chemicals and are North America's largest producer of advanced biofuel.

"Moving forward, we ask EPA to revisit the growth in cellulosic fuel production, particularly as first-generation ethanol producers expand cellulosic gallons made from feedstocks such as corn kernel fiber", Skunes said.

"Biofuels are a critical component of the USA fuel supply, and today President Trump and the EPA confirmed that fact". "The EPA's on-time announcement upholds the statutory targets for conventional biofuels, which will provide much-needed certainty for hard-pressed rural communities". We feel the Administration missed an opportunity in not continuing a sensible and consistent growth trajectory for biomass-based diesel.

Iowa Senator Joni Ernst points to future numbers of the RFS says, "I am disappointed that the 2019 biodiesel numbers were held flat at the bare minimum level that the Administrator committed to". That's the opposite of what the Renewable Fuel Standard is created to achieve. "Beyond sending a generally positive signal to the rural economy, increased blending targets also reassure retailers that it makes sense to offer E15 and flex fuels to their customers", said Brian Jennings, CEO of the American Coalition for Ethanol. She added she would continue to push for higher biodiesel and cellulosic amounts.
