Ag Industry Files RFS Appeal


A coalition Last week filed a petition in a U.S appeals court to review the Renewable Fuel Standard. The groups are asking the courts to review the Environmental Protection Agency’s RFS volumes for 2014, 2015 and 2016, announced last year after the EPA proposed significant drops in the volumes. Reuters reports the groups representing biofuels manufacturers and corn and sorghum farmers intend to challenge the EPA’s authority to set requirements for volumes of biofuels required to be used below levels set by a 2007 law. The groups in the coalition include the Biotechnology Innovation Organization, Americans for Clean Energy, American Coalition for Ethanol, Growth Energy, National Corn Growers Association, National Sorghum Producers, and the Renewable Fuels Association.
