This story was originally published on Ethanol Producer Magazine’s website:

“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.

“The petition asks the EPA to revise its RFS regulations for setting annual percentage standards for renewable fuel to account for SREs the agency issues retroactively. Currently, EPA’s regulations only factor in SREs granted prior to the compliance year despite the fact that most SREs granted in recent years have been for compliance periods that had already ended.”
