EPA's reasoning on RFS

See EPA brief explains decision to reject industry challenge to biofuels rule


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) filed a brief Monday [20 Aug 2012] explaining its decision to deny a petition that would have exempted refiners from part of a biofuel blending mandate.

The documents filed Monday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia reveal the reasoning behind EPA's move to shoot down the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) challenge of the renewable fuel standard (RFS). EPA determined that enough advanced biofuels — generally understood to be made from non-food products — existed to meet that portion of the RFS for 2012.
