ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) not to grant a waiver on the federal mandate for the production of corn ethanol in Kansas. It is inferred that the waiver on the amount of renewable fuel was requested by a coalition of meat and poultry organizations. A brief overview on the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) is provided which requires 13.2 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol to be produced in 2012 and 13.8 billion gallons in 2013.
