RFA Pleased with EPA Approval of Corn Fiber as Cellulosic Feedstock

RFA Pleased with EPA Approval of Corn Fiber as Cellulosic Feedstock    

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a final rule approving additional Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) pathways.

Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), commented, “We are very pleased that EPA has finalized its determination that the cellulosic fiber found in the corn kernel qualifies as crop residue. This clarification effectively approves corn fiber as a qualifying feedstock for cellulosic biofuel production.”

The final rule comes one day after Quad County Corn Processors began production of the first gallons of cellulosic ethanol from corn fiber in Galva, Iowa.

“As demonstrated by Quad County Corn Processors—which produced its first commercial gallon of cellulosic ethanol from corn fiber just yesterday—this feedstock holds tremendous potential to contribute meaningful volumes toward compliance with the RFS cellulosic biofuels standard,” said Dinneen.

He continued, “EPA should also be applauded for its straightforward approach to accounting for the cellulosic content of biofuel feedstocks. The ‘cellulosic content threshold’ method finalized in today’s rule is a common sense approach that minimizes administrative and accounting burdens for commercial producers, but upholds the spirit and intent of the RFS.”
