Growth Energy filed a motion in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to intervene in support of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2020, 2021, and 2022 Renewable Volume Obligations, which are currently being challenged by oil industry and environmental groups. On June 3rd, EPA finalized its 2020, 2021, and 2022 RVOs, setting the 2022 RVO for conventional biofuels at 15 billion gallons. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement in support of EPA’s forward-looking volumes:
“By setting the 2022 RVO at 15 billion gallons, EPA set a baseline for strong future blending levels under the RFS, ensuring drivers have access to lower-cost, lower-carbon fuel at the pump,” said Skor. “After drivers saw record-high fuel prices at the pump earlier this year and witnessed a volatile global fuel supply, we should be blending more low-cost biofuels into our fuel supply, not less. We support EPA’s efforts to mitigate climate change and lower prices at the pump through robust RVOs and look forward to continuing our work with them to ensure a strong RVO in 2023 in beyond.
