The Biden administration is expected to finally issue its proposals for biofuel blending volumes, setting up a likely clash between corn producers and oil refiners. Reuters reported on Friday that as part of the proposal, the administration is planning to expand the kinds of renewable fuel production processes that can receive credits under the Renewable Fuel Standard. The move could help increase production of advanced biofuels and may echo an Obama-era proposal from 2016 that would allow biofuel producers to partially process renewable feedstocks at one facility and then turn them into renewable fuels at another site under existing approved production pathways.
