Tell EPA To Properly Account for RFS Small Refinery Exemptions
The Environmental Protection Agency recently proposed a supplemental rule to project the volumes of gasoline and diesel that they will exempt in 2020 due to small refinery hardship waivers. The proposal comes in response to comments from the biofuel industry on the 2020 RFS volumes, a petition from NBB and other trade associations for the rulemaking, and a commitment from President Trump to ensure that the annual RVO for biomass-based diesel is met.

EPA proposes to use an average of the small refinery hardship relief recommended by the Department of Energy over the past three years. Industry and interagency comments on the annual rule asked EPA to use the actual volumes that EPA exempted over the past three years as a basis for future estimates. DOE's recommendations are about 40 percent lower than EPA's actual exemptions.

EPA is accepting comment on the proposal through November 29, 2019. The form will allow you to adjust a comment template, provide information particular to yourself and your company, and then submit comments directly to the rule docket.
