Description: Challenge to EPA’s cellulosic biofuel standard for 2013.
Monroe Energy, LLC v. EPA
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 08/19/2014 Order Download Order issued granting joint motion for voluntary dismissal. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a joint motion for voluntary dismissal of a challenge to the 2013 cellulosic biofuel standard. (The challenge to the cellulosic standard previously had been severed from the challenge to the rest of the 2013 renewable fuel standard (RFS); the D.C. Circuit upheld the rest of the 2013 RFS in May 2014.) EPA finalized its response to a request for administrative reconsideration of the cellulosic biofuel standard in May 2014 when it issued a direct final rule in which it based the 2013 standard on actual 2013 production and provided for a refund of excess waiver credits obtained by obligated parties. 08/14/2014 Motion Download Joint motion for voluntary dismissal filed.
