WASHINGTON, DC – On May 7, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued guidance on cellulosic pathways under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement expressing disappointment with EPA’s latest move:

“EPA’s guidance changes the rules mid-game on critical pathway approvals for cellulosic ethanol,” said Skor. “Second generation biofuels, such as advanced cellulosic ethanol, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100 percent. Rather than adding more bureaucracy to an already slow approval process, EPA should work to expand opportunities for technologies that can have a greater impact on reducing carbon emissions. EPA should instead move expeditiously to remove unnecessary hurdles and approve regulatory pathways for today’s clean fuels that promote future growth, investment and innovation in biofuel technology.”

Thanks as always to our champions @SenJohnThune, @ChuckGrassley, @SenJoniErnst, @SenatorFischer, @SenatorRounds & @RoyBlunt for working to make sure @EPA keeps President Trump's promise on biofuels. https://t.co/AXLtzCnXnF

I joined @SenJohnThune @ChuckGrassley @SenJoniErnst @SenatorFischer & @RoyBlunt in a letter to @realDonaldTrump to request the EPA change its proposed rule to restore integrity to the Renewable Fuel Standard. 15 billion gallons means 15 billion gallons. https://t.co/veBkthgGki

Reminder to all Iowans: The deadline to submit public comments on the @EPA’s supplemental rule is Nov. 29. 15 billion gallons means 15 billion gallons, and Iowa’s farmers and producers are counting on it. Express your support for upholding the #RFS here: https://t.co/R3MA4qz3s8
