The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's proposal to cut the amount of renewable fuels blended with gas and diesel next year will chip away at incentives for biofuels growth, according to Purdue University energy policy specialist Wally Tyner. Instead of a target of 1.28 billion gallons of biodiesel fuel next year, Tyner recommends a target of 1.5 billion gallons. Production for this year is likely to be more than 1.6 billion gallons, he said.
