A bipartisan group of 37 House lawmakers urged EPA in a new letter to increase its proposed blending requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard for biomass-based diesel to levels that match the industry’s growth.

The agency last year proposed its volume obligations for 2023 through 2025. Those levels for advanced biofuels were met with disappointment from industry and lawmakers, who argued it undercounted existing production levels. The agency did not immediately provide comment. The final rule setting for the RFS levels is due in June.
