  • AFPM Welcomes EPA’s Final Rule to Revise 2013 Cellulosic Standard to Actual Production
    AFPM President Charles T. Drevna issued the following statement on EPA issuing a direct final rule that sets the 2013 cellulosic standard at last year’s actual production of 810,185 ethanol-equivalent gallons. This action comes in response to the Oct. 2013 petition AFPM filed requesting reconsideration of the 2013 cellulosic standard. “EPA made the right decision today to lower the 2013 cellulosic biofuel requirement to what was actually produced last year. It is reassuring to know that the agency would readjust the numbers to meet reality instead of continuing to operate in the environment of unrealistic optimism that it had in the past. I expect EPA to use the same rational thinking to revise its proposed 2014 ethanol and biodiesel requirements, which are already long overdue.”
