WASHINGTON, D.C. – Statement from Chet Thompson, President and CEO of American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) release of the 2018 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs):
“Unfortunately, it appears that EPA did exactly what Senator Grassley demanded, bowing the knee to King Corn. We think this action is bad for U.S. manufacturing and American consumers and encourages Congress to finally fix the RFS.”
The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (“AFPM”) is a national trade association representing nearly all U.S. refining and petrochemical manufacturing capacity. AFPM members produce the fuels that drive the U.S. economy and the chemical building blocks integral to millions of products that make modern life possible.
