Mayer Brown Legal Update
On February 3, 2010, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized implementing regulations under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) that make significant changes to the renewable fuel standard (RFS1) that was originally established by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPA Act). The changes are intended to boost domestic biofuels production by, among other things, expanding the volume of renewable fuel that transportation fuel sold in the United States must contain.
