EPA Issues New Biodiesel Fuel Requirement

EPA said gasoline refiners must use 1.28 billion gallons of biodiesel in 2013.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said gasoline refiners must use 1.28 billion gallons of biodiesel in 2013, according to a final rule released Sept. 14. The final rule, which will take effect 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register, is expected to increase the price of diesel by less than 1 cent per gallon.

EPA said biodiesel producers already are producing 1.3 billion gallons of fuel a year and have “significantly greater production capacity than will be required” to meet the renewable fuel standard.
