Valero Energy and AFPM Petition Supreme Court on RFS’ Point of Obligation

January 5, 2020 |

In Washington, D.C., Valero Energy Corporation and the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to look at whether the EPA is following the law by not considering past petitions to change the point of obligation in the RFS. Valero and AFPM wants the EPA to consider requiring fuel blenders to follow the RFS instead of refiners and fuel importers.

“EPA admits that it initially placed the point of obligation on refineries and importers, but not blenders, for reasons of administrative convenience. EPA has repeatedly refused to reexamine that placement in annual rulemaking, and it denied petitions for rulemaking seeking reconsideration outside the statutorily mandated annual assessment,” according to the petition filed in the Supreme Court which you can read in full here.
