"Biofuels: Court Tosses EPA Justification For RFS Reduction"

"A federal court [Friday] rejected U.S. EPA's justification for reducing renewable fuel requirements in a win for the biofuels industry.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit agreed with biofuel producers that the agency wrongly relied on its "inadequate domestic supply" waiver authority to lower the nation's renewable fuel targets.

The court vacated EPA's decision to reduce overall renewable fuel requirements in 2016 using the supply waiver authority."
