“An agriculture and biofuels coalition petitioned the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit July 30 to lift a stay it placed on joint petition filed in 2018 asking the court to protect the renewable fuels industry from undue harmed caused by the U.S. EPA by requiring the agency to account of retroactive small refinery exemptions (SREs) in its annual Renewable Fuel Standard rulemakings.

The coalition, which consists of the Renewable Fuels Association, American Coalition for Ethanol, Biotechnology Innovation Organization, Growth Energy, National Biodiesel Board, National Corn Growers Association and National Farmers Union, first filed the lawsuit on June 4, 2018.
