Emily Skor, CEO of Growth Energy issued the following statement in response to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granting motions to stay compliance obligations pending final resolution for two refineries under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS):

“We’re disappointed the court issued an order delaying compliance by two facilities, but we’re confident that the RFS will be fully enforced once the merits are considered. The EPA’s position is backed by reams of real-world data and analysis by public- and private-sector experts. The supposed ‘cost’ to these refiners is an accounting fiction. Moreover, Congress never intended for these temporary exemptions to become a permanent handout. We agree with EPA’s view that it’s past time to end abuse of SREs, which destroy demand for low-carbon fuel and create needless uncertainty for all stakeholders, large and small.”
