Listen: The mysteries of the Renewable Fuel Standard

In this week’s Capitol Crude, Platts senior editor Herman Wang gets Serial (and serious) about the Renewable Fuel Standard and the battle between the biofuels and oil industries. When will the Environmental Protection Agency finalize the 2014 rule? What volume of biofuels will it mandate? And then what about 2015? Herman really, really wants to know in this extended podcast, just the right length for a long weekend.

Herman also speaks with Platts’ Jordan Godwin, who covers RINs and ethanol markets, on how traders have reacted to the various twists and turns of the 2014 RFS saga.
