Changes being considered by the Environmental Protection Agency regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard would undermine the RFS, according to Growth Energy. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says the EPA considering last-minute changes to the proposed renewable volume obligations is contrary to the administration promise to support the RFS.
Rolling back the volume targets would reduce the opportunity for farmers during a down economy.
The RFS, Skor says, supports the strong consumer demand for ethanol products. Recently, Growth Energy announced that E15, a fuel containing 15 percent ethanol, is now available at more than 1,000 locations across the United States.
She says it is important agriculture has a singular voice in support of the RFS.
