US National Biodiesel Board weighs in on RFS2 lawsuits

07.01.2010  | 


 In late May, lawsuits were filed in the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit regarding the renewable fuels standard (RFS2) included in the 2007 energy bill. The National Biodiesel Board recently weighed in on the controversial subject.

Manning Feraci, the NBB’s vice president of federal affairs, said, “The methodology utilized by the EPA to gauge GHG emission requirements established by statute is not perfect. That said, the challenges to the land use aggregation rules and the lifecycle analysis in these lawsuits run contrary to the will of Congress and would undermine the statute’s worthwhile objective of displacing petroleum with advanced biofuels like biodiesel. Accordingly, the NBB will vigorously defend the interests of the US biodiesel industry as the legal process moves forward.”
