Subcommittee on Environment Hearing to Examine the Future of Advanced Biofuels Under the Renewable Fuel Standard

The Subcommittee on Environment, chaired by Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL), today announced a hearing for Friday, June 22, 2018, at 9:15 a.m. in room 2322 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, “Advanced Biofuels Under the Renewable Fuel Standard: Current Status and Future Prospects.” 

Next week, SubEnvironment will hold a hearing examining the current status of and future issues with the advanced biofuels component of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

“The RFS has made progress in developing advanced biofuels and delivering them to American consumers,” said Chairman Shimkus. “While conventional, corn ethanol commands much of the debate around the RFS, we cannot forget other parts of the program as we explore potential reforms to make the RFS better reflect our evolving transportation fuel needs.”
