Senators Want Ethanol Cuts in RFS Reset
By Todd Neeley
With the ethanol industry in the United States already on the ropes with negative margins and lost demand from small refinery waivers to the Renewable Fuel Standard, a group of senators led by James Inhofe, R-Okla., is asking EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler to reset RFS volumes below the so-called blend wall.
The blend wall is reached when total ethanol production exceeds the E10 market for gasoline.
