Kelly Stone, ActionAid USA’s Policy Analyst, said:

“Today’s announcement confirms that the RFS is broken. We’re using more and more biofuels made from food crops to fill our gas tanks, as the cellulosic biofuels this mandate was supposed to promote have failed to appear.

“Biofuels made from food are bad for people and the planet. At a time when serious and dramatic emissions cuts are needed, continuing a policy that takes food away from hungry people to fuel our cars and trucks makes no sense. We can’t continue with this broken policy – the RFS needs urgent reform.”
