EPA’s proposed RFS rule sparks confusion

Groups are looking for clarification on EPA’s plan to achieve the increase and what fuel products will qualify.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed Renewable Fuel Standard is causing confusion among several different sectors.

The ag industry, electric vehicle manufacturers, and oil refiners are all scratching their heads over the proposal, which is set to take effect toward the end of the month, according to the Alberta Report.

The confusion is largely stemming from the EPA expected decision to increase the minimum of renewable fuels from the current 2.5 billion gallons to 22.68 billion gallons by 2025 in order to offset standard fuels.

Groups are looking for clarification on EPA’s plan to achieve the increase and what fuel products will qualify.

The agency is set to release its final recommendation on June 14th.
