RFS Litigation Update

The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) filed a lawsuit challenging Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) rule establishing renewable volume obligations for 2014-2016 and biomass-based diesel obligations for 2017 alleging that the agency’s annual volume obligations are unlawfully high. In addition, several entities are jockeying to intervene in a separate lawsuit filed by the ethanol industry challenging EPA’s RFS rule. That suit alleges that the agency's annual volume obligations are unlawfully low.
