NATSO member Beth Westemeyer, Director of Business Development for Anew Travel and Fuel Centers, the retail arm of Zeeland Farm Services in Zeeland, Mich., is scheduled to testify July 18 at the Environmental Protection Agency's public hearing in Ypsilanti, Mich., regarding the agency's proposed renewable fuel standards for 2019 and the biomass-based diesel volume for 2020.
During the hearing, Westemeyer will testify that Anew Travel and Fuel Centers has made substantial investments in biodiesel infrastructure in response to the incentives that Congress laid out in the Renewable Fuel Standard but that retroactive small refinery waivers have lowered demand for biofuels, thereby diminishing the value of the investments Anew and other fuel retailers have made in response to Congressional policy.
Westemeyer will testify today between 10 a.m. and noon central time, after which NATSO will update members on the full testimony.
