Growth Energy is threatening to sue the Environmental Protection Agency if they do not release the 2022 Renewable Volume Obligations in the next 60 days. By statute, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says the EPA must release the final Renewable Volume Obligations for 2022 by the end of the month. The EPA has not issued a notice of proposed rulemaking to establish the obligations or a final set rulemaking for 2023. Skor thinks politics are holding things up. “There’s so much emphasis on a conversation surrounding reconciliation and an infrastructure package,” says Skor. “On the outset of the year, when the new administration came in they were clear in saying we want to get the RFS back on track. They understood the need for certainty and stability in the marketplace.” Skor would like to see a proposal released from the White House soon with a target of 15 billion gallons of conventional ethanol.
