Edeniq Statement on 2018 Renewable Fuel Standard Final Rule

Omaha, Neb., Nov. 30, 2017 – Brian Thome, president and chief executive officer of Edeniq, released the following statement today in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2018 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) final rule:

“At Edeniq, we remain committed to working with our customers on keeping pace with their recent EPA approvals to use our technology to produce cellulosic ethanol. While we would have preferred that the 2018 RFS rule include a cellulosic renewable volume obligation (RVO) number closer to the EPA’s original proposed 384 million gallons, we anticipate continued momentum for our technology and the value it adds for our customers.”

An announcement from Sept. 1, 2017 on Thome’s written comments to the EPA on its proposed rule to set the 2018 cellulosic RVOs can be found here.
