18 more members of Congress ask EPA for strong Cellulosic RFS Volumes for 2018

On November 16, eighteen additional members of Congress sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt, urging that EPA increase the 2018 Renewable Volume Obligation volumes for cellulosic biofuel and biodiesel in its Final Rule, expected by November 30.

The representatives pointed to negative economic and environmental effects of reducing required volumes for biofuel and biodiesel. Rather, they said that increasing biofuel and biodiesel use would not only reduce air pollution, but also would save consumers money at the gas pump.
