Biofuel and Biogas Innovators Unite for Stronger Cellulosic Targets

Aug 23, 2017

In a display of unity, the nation's leading advocates for advanced liquid and gasified biofuels today (8/22) urged the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to stand by the president's commitment to drive investment in the next generation of homegrown fuels under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

The letter was signed by leaders of the American Biogas Council, Advanced Biofuels Business Council, Biotechnology Innovation Organization, and Coalition for Renewable National Gas. They urged EPA Administrator Pruitt to reverse course on a proposal that would undercut "the next American manufacturing wave" by "looking backwards" in setting 2018 goals and issuing waiver credits that suppress demand for cellulosic fuels.

The leaders noted, "The RFS is a proven tool for promoting growth. And notwithstanding volatile global oil prices and RFS policy uncertainty, the United States remains poised to lead the world in the development and commercial deployment of the most innovative fuels in the world. These cutting-edge projects are being developed in many of the same rural areas that produce clean, American-made biofuels today."
