EPA sends biofuels plan to White House
The EPA reportedly has sent its biofuels-blending draft regulations for next year to the White House with slightly higher targets.
Bloomberg reports the proposed rule would require refiners to use 5.17 Billion gallons of advanced biofuels in 2021, up 80-million from this year.
Politico reports the White House appears to be holding firm on its 2020 mandate as oil and ethanol – both hurt by the decline in fuel use in the pandemic – seek help from the administration for their separate interests.
The EPA has until November 30th to finalize its 2020 blending targets under the RFS.
