Restore integrity to the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS)

  • Reject invalid or improper small refinery exemptions (SREs)
  • Finalize strong Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs) for 2021 and 2022, and restore the 500 million gallons remanded by the courts in 2017
  • Set forward-leaning biofuel targets for 2023 and beyond
  • Approve applications for the production of advanced, corn kernel fiber ethanol

Eliminate barriers to higher blends to accelerate market access

  • Restore unrestricted access to E15 year-round
  • Clarify rules around the use of existing fuel storage and dispensing equipment for E15
  • Remove outdated labeling at the fuel pump
  • Expand infrastructure for higher biofuel blends, including USDA’s Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP)

Expand the role of biofuels in a clean energy future at home and abroad

  • Promote innovation in biotechnology and sustainable agriculture
  • Update and modernize federal GHG emissions modeling on biofuels based on the most up-to-date science
  • Utilize opportunities to decarbonize our nation’s transportation sector through the use of high octane, low-carbon fuels
  • Break down trade barriers to low-carbon ethanol in markets like Brazil, Mexico and China
  • Leverage the benefits of biofuels in the Paris Climate Accord

In 2020, the U.S. produced the least CO2 emissions from energy in nearly 40 years -- and petroleum accounted for 97% of transportation sector emissions. Use of low-carbon biofuels like bioethanol today could reduce these emissions by 46%. eia.gov/todayinenergy/…
