The Renewable Fuels Association has filed comments on the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed rulemaking for the 2013 targets under the Renewable Fuel Standard. The RFA said the EPA should bring the cellulosic biofuel target closer in line with expected output and partially lower the advanced-biofuel target, as the EPA's expected level of sugarcane ethanol imports is unrealistic. The group said the E10 blend wall should not influence the EPA's rulemaking for 2013 targets and the agency should issue its proposed 2014 standards as early as possible and ensure they are in place by Nov. 30.
