EPRINC Issues Report on Technical Constraints and Cost Risks to the Renewable Fuel StandardRead More
Max Pyziur and Lucian Pugliaresi on Technical Constraints and Cost Risks from the Renewable Fuel Standard
Under US law, increased volumes of biofuels must be blended into gasoline and diesel fuels. A variety of factors, including future demand for transportation fuels, falling crude oil prices and technological constraints, are all providing new challenges to successfully implementing the biofuel mandate.
This EPRINC assessment demonstrates that the RFS (Renewable Fuel Standard) requirements create considerable long-term costs, risks, and uncertainties to fuel producers, and are likely to raise transportation fuel costs substantially.
Lucian Pugliaresi, President of EPRINC, has asked the regulatory agencies for more time to undertake research on the recently released (by the US Environmental Protection Agency) draft Technical Assessment Report (TAR) evaluating so-called Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) and greenhouse gas emission standards for new automobiles. A copy of EPRINC’s request can be found here. A copy of EPA’s draft TAR can be found here.
