At the recent Governor’s Ag Conference in Kearney, Nebraska, Green Plains Renewable Energy president and CEO Todd Becker provided insights on current and future policy considerations for the biofuels sector.
In a follow-up news conference, we asked Becker where he thinks the EPA will end up on the 2014 Renewable Fuels Standard. Becker expressed optimism that the agency will make “some positive adjustment” to its proposal because gasoline demand has been better than expected in 2014.
We also asked Becker what impact the RFS decision would have on his company if the EPA proceeds with its proposal to cut the RFS.
Green Plains Renewable Energy owns several ethanol plants across the Midwest, including four in Nebraska.
