Clean Fuels Alliance Asks Administration to Support RFS

The Clean Fuels Alliance sent a letter to President Biden last week telling the administration the group is ready to help maintain homegrown fuel supplies, mitigate pain at the pump and support a clean energy future. The letter asks the administration to get the Renewable Fuel Standard back on track as a key driver of America’s energy independence.

“America’s biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel producers are working hard to provide better, cleaner fuels that provide consumers value and extend the diesel fuel supply,” the letter says.

The letter requests that the administration quickly finalize the proposed RFS volumes for 2021 and 2022 and drop the proposal to “reset” previously established 2020 volumes.

“Since homegrown biodiesel and renewable diesel are direct replacements for foreign oil, a strong RFS is more important today than ever for America’s national security,” says Kurt Kovarik, Vice President of Federal Affairs. “The RFS is a cornerstone of America’s energy independence.”
