In three years EPA has granted 85 exemptions from the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) to oil refineries, destroying over 4 billion gallons of biofuel demand and threatening the future of biofuels facilities across the country.
On October 4th President Donald Trump announced a deal to prevent future demand destruction and return integrity to the RFS. Less than two weeks later, when it was up to EPA to enact this deal, the agency rolled out a proposal that removed the certainty President Trump promised American farmers and biofuels producers.
Can you afford to lose access to that market to favor oil refineries? There are plenty of voices calling on the EPA to stick to the deal the president promised.
"The ethanol and biodiesel industries have a lot of cause to distrust EPA...President Trump brokered this deal, and any attempt to undermine it from EPA would represent a betrayal of the president."
Even the White House's own Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) called out the EPA's plan as inconsistent with President Trump's promise. In emails uploaded to the regulatory docket, the OIRA objected to the language in the proposal.
