American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers challenges RFS rulemaking in court

February 10, 2016 |

In Washington, the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) filed a petition for review with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit challenging the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) rulemaking for 2014-2016.

AFPM President Chet Thompson said, “Despite the agency’s best efforts, certain aspects of the final RFS rule still run afoul of the Clean Air Act. Among other things, EPA failed to provide obligated parties with requisite lead time and used flawed methodologies in establishing volume requirements. This rule further confirms that the RFS program is dysfunctional and that the only real solution is full repeal by Congress.”
