EPA Defies Court Ruling, doubles down on non-existent biofuel mandate

The Environmental Protection Agency announced on Thursday that it would be increasing the mandated amount of cellulosic biofuels refineries must purchase in 2013 to 14 million gallons, despite a court ruling that the agency exceeded its authority in requiring refiners to purchase virtually non-existent fuel.

“We are disturbed that EPA is mandating 14 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol when zero gallons are available for compliance as of today,” said Charles Drevna, president of the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers, in a statement.

Federal judges ruled that the EPA’s mandate for refiners to purchase credits for 8.65 million of gallons of cellulosic biofuel was flawed as virtually none of the biofuel is commercially available.

  1. it is called a shake down and simply stating that the EPA will do what ever it wants because the law or a judge is not allowed to interfere wit their authority given from the President. Please refer to the NLRB

  2. Companies need to follow the court ruling, and tell the EPA to SUE them if they want to enforce the fines. If the EPA tries to sue, they should counter sue for the cost of defending themselves and petition the court to file CRIMINAL charges against the INDIVIDUALS responsible for defying the court.

  3. If we had a congress that had any guts, they could de-fund this nazi organization. The same goes for the white house budget. Make moochell stay home and clean house for a while.

    Time to get rid of the EPA! W
    What kind of agency demands companies use nonexistent fuel? This is the insanity of the Obama administration.

    The EPA is as corrupt as thier master and know that thier mandates are impossile to fufill. This is
    nothing more than a scam to swindle money out of businesses and the Tax Payers. Even the
    courts realize this but refuse to act. As long as oscummer controls the justice dept they will not go
    after the EPA to block and stop this BS in its tracks or arrest the criminal there.
