WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor today released the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to maintain the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) point of obligation:

“We commend the EPA for laying to rest a year of attempts from a small group of oil refiners who have been using every trick in the book to change the established rules for tracking compliance with the Renewable Fuel Standard,” Skor said.

“This one-sided handout would have added regulatory red tape, created havoc in the marketplace, and denied consumers access to more affordable fuels with higher blends of biofuels like E15. Growth Energy has led the charge to oppose this effort from the very beginning, and we are grateful to our allies in Congress and to Administrator Pruitt for working with us to protect over 12 years of investment under the RFS.

“The RFS is America’s single most successful energy policy and continually works to save consumers money, protect the environment, drive rural growth, and secure U.S. independence.”

Unfair handouts of 'small' refinery waivers to oil refiners undermines the RFS & destroys biofuels demand! Reallocation of lost gallons & holding refiners to the law is the only way to ensure fair market for ethanol & give drivers cheaper/healthier options at the pump! #RFSworks twitter.com/BloombergEnv/s…
