Biofuels Law Alert: EPA Releases Final Renewable Fuel Standards for 2011

EPA has completed the roll out of the complex RFS2 program by setting renewable fuel quantity requirements for 2011. EPA severely curtailed the cellulosic biofuels standard from 250 million gallons to six million gallons based on limited industry growth. Looking forward to 2012, however, the agency identified a potential surge to 300 million gallons of production. EPA held firm on both the overall renewable fuel standard at 14 billion gallons and advanced biofuels at 1.35 billion gallons despite the cellulosic cut. Other contentious RFS2 issues including retroactive Renewable Identification Numbers (“RINs”) and foreign feedstock were also resolved.
