Late last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued their proposed volume requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard program for calendar year 2020. The proposal is a total renewable fuel volume of 20.04 billion gallons, of which 5.04 billion gallons are advanced biofuel, including 540 million gallons of cellulosic biofuel. This leaves the 15-billion-gallon requirement for conventional renewable fuels like corn ethanol unchanged from 2019. Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) President and CEO, Geoff Cooper, says there is some stuff in the proposal that is absolutely outrageous.
