EPA Rejects Requests to Reallocate Displaced RFS Gallons

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE The Environmental Protection Agency will not reallocate waived biofuel volumes in 2019. The agency denied a request by the corn and ethanol industries to reallocate any biofuel volumes lost to small refinery waivers next year, according to Reuters. Expansion of the waivers, which were unused under the Bush and Obama administrations, threatens demand for corn and corn-based ethanol.The Renewable Fuel Standard requires oil refiners to blend biofuels each year or purchase blending credits. However, the small refiner waivers exempt any refinery that proves complying with the RFS causes them financial strain. The corn industry points out that some of the world’s largest oil companies have received waivers from the Trump administration. Meanwhile, an EPA official this week also said that the 2019 annual biofuel mandate figures were set to be largely in line with the agency’s June proposal of 19.88 billion gallons.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE By NAFB News Service – Nov 28, 2018 Facebook Twitter EPA Rejects Requests to Reallocate Displaced RFS Gallons Home Indiana Agriculture News EPA Rejects Requests to Reallocate Displaced RFS Gallons Previous articleMore Ag Experts More Often at Improved Indy Farm Expo on the HAT Wednesday Morning EditionNext articleIndiana FSA Director Urges Farmers to Return Ballots for County Committees NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

The lawsuit was filed jointly by district attorneys in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego and Santa Clara counties.The companies are accused of a myriad of offenses, including subjecting many individuals to repetitive calls for months on end, even when no money was owed.For example the complaint cites the case of a couple from Windsor, Calif., who received hundreds of calls from Allied for more than three years, despite their continual efforts to convince the company’s representatives they called the wrong number. Even after repeated pleas and a call to the company from a police officer, the calls persisted. Allied ceased the calls only after being notified that the couple had contacted the California Attorney General’s Office.In addition, iQor and Allied used automated dialers to call cell phones without permission in violation of federal law. The companies also called people before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m. and tried to collect debts that had been discharged in bankruptcy.Allied has a history of predatory harassment through its network of global phone operations and has been the subject of numerous prior lawsuits, including a $1.75 million settlement with the Federal Trade Commission in 2010.The complaint seeks $10 million in civil penalties for the continued violations. Any amount from a judgment would be used for future public consumer protection work.California consumers who have been victims of repeated unwarranted calls from these companies are asked to contact (619) 531-3115, a consumer hotline, with their information.

The command and control ship led the UK’s Response Force Task Group on Exercise Cougar, consisting of the helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious and Plymouth-based HMS Montrose and HMS Northumberland, Royal Fleet Auxiliary Mounts Bay and the heavy-lift ferry, Hartland Point.HMS Bulwark commanding officer, Captain Andrew Burns, said:“It has been an immensely successful deployment. We have proved we have the professionalism and the tools to do the job that we are here to do. “We have come a long way in the two months since we sailed from Devonport, and we have honed the skills that make HMS Bulwark a capable and formidable amphibious platform and fleet flagship.“We now look forward to 2013 and the opportunities that we are presented with to develop and build upon our capabilities even further.” Sailing fully loaded with 550 Sailors, Royal Marines and Commander United Kingdom Task Group (COMUKTG) staff officers, 62 Land Rovers and armoured vehicles and eight amphibious landing craft, HMS Bulwark departed as a fully loaded amphibious assault platform ready to grasp every opportunity available on the exercise to train and prove its capabilities.Having trained off the SW coast where the force took the opportunity to exercise the key elements of amphibious operations, the RFTG sailed for the Mediterranean taking the opportunity to practise with Danish, French and Spanish Navies along the way.The culmination of all the rehearsing took place in Corsica, testing the combined joint expeditionary force concept developed under the 2012 UK and France Defence Cooperation Treaty.The British and French navies were successfully able to examine and test the maritime element by demonstrating its ability to project air power from the sea using the French Carrier Strike Group and the British Amphibious Task Group, with HMS Bulwark at the centre of amphibious operations.The 13-day exercise in Albania included 30 and 45 Commando Royal Marines, a full land and air assault on the Vlore Peninsula and simulated small boat attacks were conducted against the ships in the task group by the Albanian Navy, playing the role of smugglers and insurgents.Exercise Albanian Lion allowed HMS Bulwark to not only demonstrate its prowess in amphibious operations, command and control, and surface defence against maritime attack.The crew of HMS Bulwark also enjoyed port visits to Gibraltar, Toulon, Corfu and Malta for diplomacy duties and rest, memorial services and sport events.[mappress]Naval Today Staff,November 30, 2012; Image: Royal Navy HMS Bulwark to Return to South West England Training & Education View post tag: England November 30, 2012 View post tag: South View post tag: Bulwark View post tag: West Share this article View post tag: HMSlast_img read more
