Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS):
The Environmental Protection Agency did not meet the November 30, 2020, deadline to set the 2021 Renewable Fuel Standard obligations and 2022 biomass-based diesel volumes. Additionally, the agency extended 2019 and 2020 compliance deadlines to provide flexibility
to refineries as it tries to get back on track with the rule. The delays create uncertainty for the biodiesel and renewable diesel industry.
In addition, the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2021 issued a decision that could allow EPA to grant new small refinery exemptions from year to year. The Court decision overturns the EPA's recently announced position on the exemptions, creating new uncertainty.
Please contact your Representative and Senators and update them on the situation through this form. As the 117th Congress considers legislative options to address environmental and economic issues, this is
an opportunity to let lawmakers know that support for the RFS helps biodiesel and renewable diesel producers.
