Renewable fuels industry waiting for key decisions

The chief economist for the Renewable Fuels Association says the biofuels industry is waiting on a couple of key announcements.

Scott Richman tells Brownfield, “We and everybody are looking forward to the release of the GREET version life cycle analysis model that will be used for sustainable aviation fuel and that’s going to be coming up pretty soon. That’s something for people to follow.”

He says sales of E15 fuel blends this summer is another concern. “The EPA has to go through certain protocols. There are certain requirements that have to be met for an emergency waiver to be issued for the summertime in order to allow E15 in conventional gasoline areas.”

Richman says a decision from EPA is expected soon because fuel terminals will begin turning over on May 1st.
