WASHINGTON, DC — Following the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announcement of the final 2013 Renewable Volume Obligations for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), Tom Buis CEO of Growth Energy released the following statement:
“Growth Energy is pleased that the EPA has finalized the 2013 biofuel volumes and has continued to show its strong commitment to the RFS. We look forward to closely reviewing the final rule and we strongly support increasing levels of renewable fuel into our nation’s fuel supply.
“The RFS continues to be a resounding success, helping create jobs in America that cannot be outsourced, revitalizing rural economies across the country in addition to reducing our dependence on foreign oil and improving our environment, all while providing consumers with a choice and savings at the pump.
“Growth Energy provided substantive comments to the proposed volumes earlier this year demonstrating our continued support for the success and flexibility of the RFS.”
