EPA says it’s denying “gap” waivers

The EPA has just announced it is denying “gap year” petitions for small refinery exemptions. Ethanol and corn groups have been urging the administration to do just that.

The EPA says it is moving forward to review petitions for other small refinery exemptions under the Renewable Fuel Standard.

The “gap-filling” petitions that had been submitted were for the 2011 through 2018 compliance years.
