The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a draft rule on the Renewable Fuel Standard. The agency wants feedback on how the annual renewable fuel percentages are calculated. These percentages are used to determine the number of gallons to blend in fuel for compliance. At issue are small refinery waiver exemptions. In this new proposal, the EPA will seek comment on fuel exemptions for 2020 and says they will grant partial exemptions in appropriate circumstances. The EPA will hold a public hearing on October 30, followed by a 30-day public comment period. Read the proposal.
