The American Petroleum Institute called on the Environmental Protection Agency December 19 to issue overdue renewable fuel standard requires for the upcoming year by January 1. The agency missed the November 30 statutory deadline to finalize the 2013 volume requirements and set the biomass-based diesel fuel requirements for 2014, which must be set 14 months in advance. The proposed rule for 2013 has been with the Office of Management and Budget for review since July.
