Renewable Fuels Association disappointed with EPA’s final RVO rule

IARN — The Environmental Protection Agency released the finalized 2023-2025 Renewable Fuel Standard volumes Wednesday to the disappointment of numerous renewable fuel industry groups. The final rule indicates a reduction in ethanol gallons from the volumes that were originally proposed in December 2022 by the EPA.

EPA’s final rule includes conventional renewable fuel requirements of 15 billion gallons for both 2024 and 2025, down from the proposed volumes of 15.25 billion for both years.

Troy Bredenkamp, senior vice president for government and public affairs with the Renewable Fuels Association says that the reduction in the volume of conventional renewable fuels is disappointing.
