Growth Energy’s Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, Chris Bliley, testified on Tuesday, August 1, during the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) public hearing for the proposed rule, “Renewable Fuel Standard Program: Standards for 2018 and Biomass-Based Diesel Volume for 2019.”
An excerpt from Chris’s testimony is below, and click here to read Growth Energy’s full comments.
“The biofuels industry is committed to preserving our nation’s most successful energy policy — the Renewable Fuel Standard — and achieving the statutory Renewable Volume Obligation levels prescribed by Congress. We are concerned about the agency’s backpedaling on advanced biofuels and cellulosic biofuels, in particular. If we want energy dominance and innovation, we need to continue to build upon the success of the RFS by maintaining the commitment to 15 billion gallons of conventional biofuel and moving forward — not backward — on cellulosic.”
Excited about this one: I'll be going on @OfficialRFDTV Monday evening with incredible rural champions @NFUDC to talk about the hardworking people in the biofuels industry. https://t.co/W6PV5mtRAR
