Tell the EPA #NoMoreWaivers

Since early 2018, the EPA has granted 85 RFS exemptions to refineries for 2016, 2017 and 2018 RFS compliance years, totaling 4.04 billion ethanol-equivalent gallons of renewable fuel.  Even with providing parity for year-round E15, the full benefits won’t be realized with continued waivers.

 

636 million – The difference in the number of corn bushels needed to meet the RFS volume EPA set for 2017 and the amount needed to meet the effective volume after the waivers.

 

Tell the EPA that they must account for waivers in this rule to keep the RFS whole. Send your comment today!
