USDA Grain Transportation Report (12/08): EPA Proposes Renewable Fuel Standards For 2023-25

According to today's USDA Grain Transportation Report, on December 1, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule to establish 2023, 2024, and 2025 required renewable fuel standards (RFS) for production volumes and percentages of total U.S. fuel production.

The proposed rule would also strengthen and expand the RFS program.

By 2025, EPA proposes requiring U.S. production of 22.68 billion gallons of renewable fuel, up from 20.63 billion gallons in 2022.

On January 10, 2023, EPA will hold a virtual public hearing on the proposed rule. An additional session may be held on January 11, 2023, if necessary, to accommodate all commenters. Register by January 3, 2023, by emailing RFS-Hearing@epa.gov.
