Growth Energy Submits Comments on EPA RVO Proposal

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Monday, Growth Energy submitted detailed comments in response to the proposal by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs) which are part of the broader Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, noted, “The RFS has been an overwhelming success. It has created American jobs, revitalized rural America, injected much-needed competition into a monopolized vehicle fuels market, lowered the price at the pump, improved the environment, and made our nation more energy independent and secure by reducing our dangerous dependence on foreign oil. It makes no sense that EPA would try and move this program backward. We hope that EPA will review our comments closely and finalize the volumes at the statutory levels.”
