Growth Energy launches new ad campaign criticizing EPA
July 24, 2019 By Will Robinson Filed Under: News
advocacy group Growth Energy has launched a new ad campaign criticizing the EPA
for failing to address lost ethanol demand caused by small refinery exemptions.
Energy CEO, Emily Skor, said the ads give a voice to farmers in rural
communities who are most impacted by the EPA’s failure to follow the law.
The ads feature fourth generation corn and soybean farmer Scott Henry from
Nevada, Iowa. He says the EPA is rigging the system for oil companies.
2020 Renewable Volume Obligations did not account for the billions of gallons
of ethanol lost from refinery waivers. Growth Energy said the EPA chose to
ignore a 2017 court ruling requiring the agency to restore 500 million gallons
of biofuel that were waived from the 2016 RVO.
The EPA has not decided on 38 2018 small refinery exemptions.
