Public Hearing Announced For Proposed Renewable Fuel Standard Volumes


On May 25, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a public hearing for the proposed rule "Renewable Fuel Standard Program: Standards for 2017 and Biomass-Based Diesel Volume for 2018." A pre-publication version of the proposed rule is available now, with the proposed rule being published separately in the Federal Register under Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2016-0004. The proposed volumes include slight increases in all categories from the 2016 volumes, but still fall short of the volumes proposed for 2017 under Section 211 of the Clean Air Act. The public hearing will be held in Kansas City, Missouri, on June 9, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. (CT). Parties wishing to testify at the hearing should notify the contact person listed below by May 31, 2016:
