Industry associations advocate for RNG in feedback to EPA's proposed RFS rule

By Kristin Musulin, Waste Dive.

Dive Brief:

  • The Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition), Energy Vision, the National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA), Natural Gas Vehicles for America (NGVAmerica), and the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) filed joint public comments to the EPA to advocate for RNG under the proposed Renewable Fuel Volume Standard rule, according to an emailed press statement.
  • The comments ask that the EPA set a final 2018 Renewable Volume Obligation that reflects "market reality" and considers all available RIN generation data including fuel from 32 projects scheduled to come online by end of 2018. 
  • This is the second letter filed to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt in the last 10 days from waste industry-related groups calling on the EPA to amend the proposed rules.
