WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor today released the following statement in response to a Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) letter sent by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt to several Senate biofuels champions. The EPA commits to leaving biodiesel levels untouched, eliminating the prospect of a foreign market-killing export scheme, leaving the RFS point of obligation unchanged, and expanding markets for E15 by fixing the Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) issue. These are positive steps for America’s biofuels industry and American farmers.

“Growth Energy applauds EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s pledge to Senate biofuels champions to uphold the president’s continuous support of the RFS and faithfully administer the law passed by Congress. The commitments outlined in his letter – when finalized – will ensure American biofuels continue to deliver value to consumers nationwide. We thank our senate champions and governors, whose unyielding support helped secure this landmark commitment from the EPA.

“We will continue to work with EPA on all matters regarding biofuel regulations and look forward to the final Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) with levels greater than the 2017 total levels, including an increase for cellulosic biofuels.”
