WASHINGTON, D.C. - American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers President and CEO Chet Thompson today released the following statement on the DC Circuit Court’s ruling on EPA’s rule extending the one-pound RVP waiver to E15.
“We are glad the Court unanimously found that EPA lacks the authority to grant an RVP waiver to fuel containing more than 10 percent ethanol, consistent with how EPA interpreted its authority for nearly 30 years prior. There is no ambiguity in the statute and the previous administration’s reinterpretation overstepped the will of Congress.”
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.
