WASHINGTON – Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced biofuel blending volumes for 2023, 2024, and 2025 that included volumes for advanced biofuels like biodiesel, renewable diesel, and corn ethanol.  

“Today’s modest increase in advanced volumes is a step in the right direction for family farmers and the biofuels economy, but also a missed opportunity to further incentivize carbon reductions,” said NFU President Rob Larew. “Unfortunately, EPA did lower the conventional corn-based ethanol volumes and in doing so overlooked the benefits to consumers for lower priced, cleaner burning fuel.   

NFU continues to be a strong supporter of higher-level blends of ethanol, which can contribute to a green energy transition and provide economic opportunities to rural communities.
