EPA Rejects Requests to Reallocate Displaced RFS Gallons

The Environmental Protection Agency will not reallocate waived biofuel volumes in 2019. The agency denied a request by the corn and ethanol industries to reallocate any biofuel volumes lost to small refinery waivers next year.  Expansion of the waivers, which were unused under the Bush and Obama administrations, threatens demand for corn and corn-based ethanol.
