POET Statement on Proposed RVO Volumes

Tuesday, December 7, 2021

Sioux Falls, SD (December 7, 2021) — Joshua Shields, POET Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and Communications, issued the following statement in response to the EPA announcement today on the 2020, 2021 and 2022 Renewable Volume Obligations under the Renewable Fuel Standard:

“EPA’s draft rule would reduce access to the single most affordable and abundant source of low-carbon liquid fuel on the planet right at the moment when consumers are facing high gas prices, and political leaders are grasping for climate solutions that are within reach. The Biden Administration should fulfill the President’s campaign promises to support the Renewable Fuel Standard, which will continue to affordably decarbonize the nation’s existing vehicle fleet, create clean energy jobs and support American farmers. We urge the EPA to consider the consequences of reducing biofuel volumes, reinstate robust blending targets and, as the President said, ‘Get the RFS back on track’ before the rule is finalized.”
