"Smaller” biofuel mandates due to compliance waivers have not reduced the volume of ethanol consumed in the United States — a fact government data affirms. Here’s why.
As we progress through 2019, one thing that has remained consistent is that U.S. ethanol consumption and blending are higher this year than they have ever been — a sign that small-refinery hardship waivers exempting some qualified facilities from Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) blending obligations have not destroyed demand for ethanol.
The biofuel industry, facing poor margins due to overproduction and declining exports, is trying various tactics to force more ethanol and biodiesel into the U.S. fuel supply.
Unpredictable costs associated with Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) compliance are a reality for refiners in the United States, and debates about small refinery exemptions (SREs) must remain honest and grounded in data.
