National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) submitted comments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the proposed 2014 Renewable Volume Obligation (RVO) for the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS). The NAWG comments stress that changes to the RFS would send the wrong market signals, impacting agricultural markets and investments in new technology and cellulosic biofuels production. NAWG supports the RFS as passed by Congress and opposes EPA’s proposed 2014 RVO under the RFS. House and Senate leaders also expressed concern about the EPA proposal in letters sent to EPA recently. The RFS has reduced greenhouse gas emissions and encouraged economic development and new technology.
