WASHINGTON, D.C. - Statement from Chet Thompson, President and CEO of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) in response to the EPA’s proposed RVOs for 2019:

“EPA proposed to double-down on the most failed parts of the Renewable Fuel Standard. Higher cellulosic and biodiesel volumes—that are not connected to reality—would compound problems for consumers and refiners and continue the legacy of RFS dependence on expensive biodiesel imports. The RFS is a broken mandate and U.S. manufacturers, refiners and consumers are paying the price. Congress must reform this program.”
