Senator Grassley on RVOs: “Worst Week in Washington for Ethanol Ever”

There are more rumors circulating about potential cuts in the require volume obligations (RVOs) for biofuels. Those stories have certainly gained the attention of industry supporters on Capitol Hill, especially Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).   There have been rumors for months that EPA would reduce the RVO’s for not only 2021 and 2022, but retroactively for 2020 (see our coverage from 3 September here).

Communicating importance of value-added products

Facing increasing pressure to quantify the value of export promotion efforts to investors, a U.S. industry organization retained WPI to develop a quantitative model that better communicated the importance of exports. The resulting model concluded that value-added meat exports contributed $0.45 cents per bushel to the price of corn, increasing support for that sector’s financial support of WPI’s client. In addition to serving the red meat industry with this type of analysis, WPI has generated similar deliverables for the U.S. soybean and poultry/egg industries.
