RFA tells EPA to include missing RIN gallons in planned RVO “reset”

February 4, 2019 |

In Washington, the Renewable Fuels Association wrote a letter to the acting administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency last week requesting that the planned “reset” of renewable volume obligations for 2020-2022 take into consideration the 500 million gallons of renewable fuel improperly waived from the 2016 standards, as required by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals’ remanding Americans for Clean Energy v. EPA, the approximately 232 million RIN “write-off” as part of the Philadelphia Energy Solutions Refining and Marketing, LLC (‘‘PESRM’’) bankruptcy settlement, and the 2.25 billion RINs attributable to 48 small refinery exemptions granted for compliance years 2016 and 2017. The proposed reset is meant to reduce the RVOs for cellulosic and advanced biofuels due to lower-than-expected production.
