Clean Fuels thanks bipartisan group of 37 US House members for letter urging higher RFS volumes

A bipartisan group of 37 U.S. House members, led by Reps. Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa, and Angie Craig, D-Minnesota, sent a letter to U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan July 11 encouraging him to support biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuels volumes that fully account for availability and production capacity.


Clean Fuels Alliance America applauded the letter and thanked all of the representatives who led and signed.


“Producing advanced biofuels in the United States promotes economic opportunities for communities across the country and increases market access for our nation's farmers,” the lawmakers wrote. “A strong [Renewable Fuel Standard] and availability of homegrown agricultural feedstocks are crucial to meeting the nation’s goal for new advanced biofuels for sustainable aviation (SAF), maritime, rail, home-heating and off-road heavy-duty markets.”


The House letter is available here.


“We look forward to working with you on 2026 standards that raise RFS volumes for biomass-based diesel and advanced biofuels to levels that are consistent with production and availability,” the representatives conclude.


Eighteen senators sent a similar letter June 12.


The administration’s recently released Spring 2024 Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions indicates that the 2026 RFS volumes will not be finalized until December 2025, more than a year later than required by statute.


“We appreciate the bipartisan effort to urge EPA to meet statutory deadlines for the Renewable Fuel Standard,” said Kurt Kovarik, vice president of federal affairs for Clean Fuels.


“Increased production and market space for advanced biofuels like biodiesel, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel has always been the goal of the program,” Kovarik added. “EPA needs to act fast to get the program back on track.”
