Posted on 09/20/2018 2:19 PM

The Environmental Protection Agency has pledged to bring more clarity to its small refinery waiver process, and the agency attempted to follow through on that to some degree today with its publication of a dashboard detailing how many small-refinery waivers have been issues under the Renewable Fuel Standard.

The dashboard shows the agency granted 29 biofuel waivers last year out of 34 requests and five are still pending. So far this year, EPA has received 11 petitions for waivers, but a decision is pending for all of them.

Of note, the agency has not denied a single small refinery request since 2015.
