American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) Senior Vice President of Government Relations and Policy, Geoff Moody, issued the following statement responding to the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2023-2025 proposal for Renewable Fuel Standard (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. It doubles down on some of the program’s most problematic elements without taking meaningful steps to address fundamental RFS design flaws or derive better carbon benefits from the program.
“For the final rule, EPA must go back and set conventional volumes that are aligned with consumer demand and infrastructure realities. It must also hold true to the legacy of RFS as a liquid fuels program—not an electric vehicle program—by rejecting yet another massive regulatory subsidy for electric vehicle manufacturers. ”
