Restore Certainty to the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS):

  • Finalize strong Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs) for 2021 and 2022
  • Reject improper and illegal retroactive cuts to the already finalized 2020 RVOs
  • Reject all pending and improperly granted small refinery exemptions (SREs)
  • Restore the 500 million gallons remanded by the courts in 2017
  • Set forward-leaning biofuel targets for 2023 and beyond that recognize the contributions of low-carbon ethanol in achieving climate goals
  • Update EPA’s outdated lifecycle carbon assessment model
  • Approve pending registrations for cellulosic biofuel from kernel fiber

Eliminate Barriers to Higher Blends of Low-Carbon Ethanol:

  • Restore unrestricted access to E15 year-round
  • Clarify rules around the use of existing fuel storage and dispensing equipment for E15
  • Finalize EPA’s proposal to simplify onerous labeling requirements at fuel pumps
  • Expand infrastructure for higher biofuel blends through legislative or administrative action

Utilize Biofuels as a Cost-Effective Pathway to Achieve Climate Goals:

  • Promote new uses for biofuels, including sustainable fuel for aviation, marine, and heavy-duty applications
  • Enact new and expand existing incentives to encourage ethanol producers to further reduce their carbon footprint through carbon capture, utilization, and storage, as well as innovation in biotechnology and sustainable agriculture
  • Break down trade barriers to low-carbon ethanol in markets like Brazil, India, and China
  • Utilize opportunities to decarbonize our nation’s transportation sector through the use of high octane, low-carbon fuels

Moving to a nationwide E15 standard would save $12.2 billion in fuel costs - every year. That's meaningful for American drivers.

Japan has committed to taking all available measures to double demand for bioethanol, including for sustainable aviation fuel and on-road fuel, by 2030 to reduce dependence on imported petroleum. This move translates to roughly over an E3 blend →…
