A new campaign from the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) spotlights the surging costs and unprecedented impact of biofuel mandates on U.S. refineries and the need for immediate action to get RFS costs under control.
The Supreme Court is set to review RFS small refinery relief—what’s required to qualify and whether any small refinery can be forever disqualified.
"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.
