The EPA is moving forward with four actions related to the Renewable Fuel Standard and E15. To be published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, the EPA will seek public comments on requests from refiners and oil state governors to provide a general waiver from 2019 and 2020 RFS Renewable Volume Obligations due to COVID. On Friday, the EPA published a final determination in the Federal Register saying no additional measures are necessary to mitigate potential adverse air quality impacts associated with the RFS. The EPA also proposed an extension of compliance deadlines for 2019 and 2020 RVOs. Finally, the EPA will remove certain barriers to expand E15 sales, to be published in the Federal Register tomorrow.
