Posted on September 12th, 2014

From American Soybean Association (September 11, 2014):

ASA and the National Biodiesel Board (NBB) met with the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and other Administration officials this week once again underscore the importance of stronger biodiesel volumes under the 2014 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

Last November, EPA proposed volumes under the RFS at 1.28 billion gallons – a steep cut from actual 2013 production of nearly 1.8 billion gallons. After taking comments and revising the initial proposal, the EPA sent its latest proposal back to the White House on Aug. 22, beginning the final stage of the rulemaking process.

ASA and NBB stated, while the contents of the final proposal are unknown, they requested a meeting with the White House to once again convey the industry’s urgent concerns and make the case for a meaningful increase in biodiesel volumes. More than a dozen NBB members, several economists and other experts shared their perspectives with senior Administration officials.
