Cargill is seeking damages in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York from the International Exchange Services for allegedly refusing to replace 1.2 million biodiesel renewable identification numbers that were later found to be fraudulent. The food and agricultural producer is the latest victim of fraud within the Environmental Protection Agency’s electronic credit system for tallying renewable fuel production. The agency announced in July that it plans to be more flexible with companies that unknowingly purchase fake credits. The American Petroleum Institute said September 27 that it does not anticipate that the agency will rule before the end of the year on a final rule that could alleviate concerns about fraud in the program, though it was hoping that it would before a new compliance year begins this January.
