WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) President and CEO Chet Thompson today released the following statement regarding the Trump Administration’s supplemental rule to adjust the U.S. biofuel mandate:
“EPA’s proposed RFS adjustments would be a painful affront to U.S. refiners and the manufacturing workers the president promised to support, and do nothing to address the real source of what currently ails the biofuel and agriculture industries: the trade war with China. These adjustments would be bad for U.S. manufacturing and bad for consumers, and certainly not a ‘win-win’ solution.”
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.
