Sent to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this white paper is calling for clarification of the agency’s interpretation of feedstock material within the definition of facility under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) (see 40 CFR 80.1401). Specifically, the definition of facility requires the production of advanced biofuel, from the delivery of feedstock material to production and final storage of the end product, to be completed at one location, controlled by the same person in order for the fuel to qualify toward meeting the RFS goals.
