Growth Energy Supports EPA Refinery Exemption Decisions

Growth Energy has filed a motion to intervene in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, supporting the Environmental Protection Agency’s refinery exemptions decision.

The motion is in response to the Hunt Refining Company’s lawsuit seeking to reverse the EPA decision to reject unwarranted Small Refinery Exemptions. The motion is just the latest in a series?of legal efforts Growth Energy?has led?to protect the integrity of the Renewable Fuel Standard, which requires oil refiners to blend a specific amount of biofuels into their fuel each year.

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says, “EPA made the right call by following the data, which show there is no economic justification for exempting another oil company from its obligations under the RFS.” Skor adds, “Past abuse of SREs destroyed demand for billions of gallons of biofuels, undermining our ability to hold down prices at the pump with clean, American renewable fuel.”
