Getting approval to sell E15 year round has been a priority for the ag sector for years – and the industry has gotten close – especially 2022, to reaching that goal. However, with the summer driving season just weeks away, the ethanol sector continues to wait on a decision from EPA about whether a waiver will be granted this year to allow continued selling of high-ethanol blend fuel during the busiest fuel use season. And this is just one of many key issues EPA is currently juggling that could have a big impact on ag markets.
Luckily, DTN Staff reporter Todd Neeley joins us today to give us an overview of the myriad issues on the agency’s plate. We’ll dig into the EPA’s new tailpipe rules that seem to favor electric vehicles, and what that might mean for the near future of the US fleet. We’ll also hear the latest on a lawsuit against the EPA relating to the Endangered Species Act and the RFS, and the conclusion of a case of biofuel credit fraud.
Then, we’ll set you up with topics to watch out for as news breaks this summer around biofuels and beyond.
