US EPA provides Genscape extension to respond to notice of intent

By Ron Kotrba, Biodiesel Magazine.

U.S. EPA has granted Genscape Inc. an extension to respond to the agency’s Jan. 4 notice of intent to revoke the company’s ability to verify renewable identification number (RIN) credits as a third-party auditor under the Renewable Fuel Standard Quality Assurance Program. Genscape now has until April 18 to respond to EPA.

EPA stated this action of revocation is being pursued to hold Genscape accountable for failing to meet all elements of its approved QAP plan, and for verifying millions of RINs that were fraudulently generated by Gen-X Energy Group Inc. and Southern Resources and Commodities LLC.
