Listen: US EPA drops a new wave album's worth of apologies about renewable fuels

The US Environmental Protection Agency's Chris Grundler may not be a member of Depeche Mode, but to Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang his appearance at the recent National Ethanol Conference unfolded like the seminal British electronic goth band's discography.

Grundler, whose office is in charge of the Renewable Fuel Standard, apologized to conference attendees for failing to Shake the Disease of missing statutory deadlines to set the 2014 and 2015 mandates. But he asked the audience to Walk In My Shoes, saying the annual rule is difficult to manage. Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen, meanwhile, said he hopes the EPA will Never Let Me Down Again by setting the biofuels mandates below statutory levels.

Also on the podcast, RFA Senior Vice President Geoff Cooper gives us the World In My Eyes, talking about how exports are a top priority for the US ethanol industry, in the face of RFS uncertainty.
