AFPM comment on the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

AFPM President Charles T. Drevna issued the following statement in response to a ruling on 18th September 2013 by the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals, which found the California LCFS to be constitutional.

‘AFPM is disappointed by the decision of a divided panel of the Ninth Circuit. The District Court explained compellingly why the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard violates the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. Although the LCFS is a California law, its broad reach and intended scope means that implementing the LCFS will have adverse consequences throughout the nation’s fuel refining facilities and supply chain far beyond California’s borders. AFPM will be evaluating its options regarding further court proceedings in upcoming weeks.’
