Growth Energy submits new comments on EPA’s proposal to end SRE abuse

Growth Energy submitted new comments to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) further supporting EPA’s proposal to deny 65 pending small refinery exemptions (SREs).
In its supplemental submission, Growth Energy reinforced the EPA’s analysis of the economics of RFS compliance and supported the agency’s standard for showing disproportionate economic hardship under the RFS, which would require denial of the 65 pending SREs.
“In February, EPA proposed a full sweep denial of 65 pending SREs before EPA, a move that would provide the biofuels industry with certainty in the marketplace and the encouragement that the years of SRE abuse are over,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor.
“EPA should be steadfast in its findings that SREs can only be granted in a narrow set of circumstances of disproportionate economic hardship caused solely by compliance with the RFS.
“It should ignore continued erroneous claims from oil industry commenters seeking to avoid blending more homegrown, low-carbon biofuels into their fuel. With historically high gas prices amid the war in Ukraine, we need more American biofuels available at the pump - not less.”
