U.S. Refiners to Learn of Biofuel Waiver Bids

Small refiners in the U.S. will not have much longer to wait to find out if they have been exempt from biofuel mandates.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will start deciding on 2018 waivers in the “next few weeks, month at the most,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said at a Monroe Energy LLC’s Trainer refinery event in Pennsylvania.

The Renewable Fuel Standard has been a source of contention between agriculture and oil refiners and the fight over the small refinery exemptions has been particularly contentious. "The agency hopes to have the annual reset for renewable fuel standard quotas finished by November," Wheeler further commented.
