AFPM's Geoff Moody issued the following statement responding to the EPA's 2023-2025 proposal for RFS blending obligations: “Congress provided EPA the ability to modernize the RFS and set it on a more sustainable course for all stakeholders. Sadly, EPA’s proposal is a missed opportunity..."

Refiners Bewildered by Biden Administration RFS Rule that Will Increase Costs for Refiners & Consumers
EPA's 2022 RFS standard is bewildering and contrary to the Administration’s claims to be doing everything in their power to provide relief to consumers. Unachievable mandates will needlessly raise fuel production costs and further threaten the viability of U.S. small refineries, both at the expense of consumers.
American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers CEO Chet Thompson today issued the following statement on the Biden administration’s announcement that it plans to invoke emergency waiver authority under the Clean Air Act to allow for the incremental sale of E15 fuel this summer.
EPA’s blanket denial of relief for small refineries is a political decision that contradicts Congress’s design for the RFS. We are deeply disappointed in this and in the precedent it sets for small refineries experiencing hardship and the communities and regions that rely on these facilities for energy security.
In a series of comments submitted recently to EPA, leading labor groups made the case to President Biden and EPA Administrator Michael Regan for reductions to the proposed 2022 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) volume mandate. An unachievable and costly RFS is a threat to good union jobs.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This is a commonsense administration decision. We’re still waiting for EPA to make a call on 2019 and 2020 relief petitions and there remains no 2021 or 2022 proposals, much less final rules, from the Agency to guide business decisions for refineries. We all know RIN scarcity is real and clarity about future obligations is needed in order for facilities to align around their individual compliance strategies.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – "Federal policy is discouraging supply by shutting down pipelines, putting future production off limits, talking down the future of the petroleum business, and imposing expensive requirements on refineries, chief among them a burdensome Renewable Fuel Standard. The Administration is blaming others when it ought to take a sober look at its own energy policy."
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.
