Federal court overturns EPA biofuel mandate

The EPA biofuel mandate requires ever increasing amounts of cellulosic ethanol be used in fuel. However production has been nearly zero. The court ruled EPA had overreached in their mandate.

A federal appeals court threw out a federal rule on renewable fuels on Friday, saying that a quota set by the Environmental Protection Agency for incorporating liquids made from woody crops and wastes into car and truck fuels was based on wishful thinking rather than realistic estimates.
