Minnesota Biofuels director frustrated by EPA GREET delay

The director of the Minnesota Biofuels Association is frustrated EPA delayed updates to certain transportation emission standards.

Brian Werner tells Brownfield the agency missed a self-imposed March 1st deadline to announce an updated Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Transportation, or GREET model.

“It’s been frustrating, and I think we really need the certainty of getting some of the details for these federal tax credits that are going to be out there. Whether that’s for the 40B, the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Tax Credit, which is the one that’s being delayed right now. Or the Clean Fuel Production Tax Credit.”

He says guidance on how to qualify for that is expected by the end of the year.

“So I think the delay on the GREET modeling updates is really kind of delaying a lot of the final guidance for these tax credits, and it’s just creating more uncertainty.”

Werner says members of his association want to make investments to qualify for these tax credits but are hesitant because they “don’t know the rules of the road.”
