Washington, D.C. – Lisa Jacobson, President of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), offered the following statement in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final rulemaking for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Program:
“Biofuels are a key part of the clean energy industry’s broad portfolio of technologies and are instrumental to decarbonizing the transportation sector and advancing the energy transition. BCSE praises EPA for increasing the renewable fuel volumes for 2023, 2024, and 2025, recognizing the growth of renewable natural gas in the U.S. transportation sector and the significant expansion of the biogas and biomass industries more broadly. This federal support for organic waste-to-energy industries will help reduce methane emissions and accelerate production of cleaner transportation fuels.
“BCSE looks forward to continuing to work with EPA and the Biden Administration to finalize the long-awaited proposal to incorporate eRINs for all eligible feedstocks into the RFS and align the development of the biofuels industry with the Administration’s decarbonization and electrification goals.”
