WASHINGTON, DC — Growth Energy today joined other industry leaders in sending a letter to the White House calling on President Trump to quickly address recent actions by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that could unravel progress achieved under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
“The biofuels industry stands united against drastic changes to the RFS that would freeze innovation and halt investments in the production of homegrown biofuels,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor.
“The changes being considered by the EPA run counter to the law and threaten the growth and prosperity of the U.S. biofuels industry, including farmers and communities across the heartland. We’re calling on the White House to put the EPA back on course before the agency does irreversible harm to the President’s agenda and goes back on his promises to rural voters.”
In the letter, industry leaders called on the White House to protect cellulosic and starch-based ethanol targets from EPA cuts, to withdraw the agency’s latest notice aimed at total biofuel volumes (including biodiesel), and to reject oil industry proposals for an export-subsidy credit designed to strip the value from higher biofuel blends.
