President Donald Trump may release more details about the realignment of biofuel gallons in the Renewable Fuel Standard. American Soybean Association Vice-President and Worthington, Minnesota farmer Bill Gordon says Secretary Perdue wouldn’t discuss the details at the Farm Progress Show. “Hopefully, we’re seeing additional gallons put on the RFS to compensate for the small refinery waivers. It looks like they might add gallons to the total RFS.” Gordon says if additional gallons are added to the RFS, it would help the biofuels industry. “The biodiesel industry would be welcome to getting those gallons back and working on a short-term growth schedule and working long-term, too. The northern farmers, especially by Crookston, Minnesota need the crush to get the basis back to normal.”
