EPA extends RFS2 comment period

By | August 10, 2009
The U.S. EPA has extended the comment period by 60 days for its proposed rule for the implementation of the second stage of the renewable fuel standard (RFS2). The extension, granted in response to several requests submitted to the EPA, was originally scheduled to end July 27 but will now end Sept. 25. The EPA said a 60-day extension should allow adequate time for the public to provide comment on the proposal while also allowing the agency enough time to implement new standards in a timely manner. The proposed implementation for RFS2, which addresses life-cycle greenhouse gas modeling among other changes to the current RFS, was released May 5, with public commentary beginning May 26th.
