Restore Certainty to the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS):

  • Urge the Administration to hold refineries accountable to their 2021 and 2022 blending obligations and ensure volumes are met in a timely manner.
  •  Finalize 2023 and later RVOs with implied conventional volumes at no less than 15 BG, and ensure that total and advanced RVOs are high enough to meet current and future market capacity while spurring technological innovation and market growth across the biofuels sector. 
  • Update EPA’s outdated lifecycle carbon assessment model.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 nationwide 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.
