Pushing Back on Oil Refiners

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Chris ClaytonDTN Ag Policy EditorCOUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (DTN) — The Trump administration shouldn’t grant more than three dozen small-refiner exemptions to the Renewable Fuel Standard at a time when farmers are already feeling the impacts of low commodity prices due to lost trade, the head of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association said Wednesday.Speaking at the Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy ethanol plant, Monte Shaw, executive director of the IRFA, and Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig called on the Environmental Protection Agency to reject 39 requests by refiners to be exempt from the blending requirements of the 2018 obligated blend volumes. The requests come after former EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt granted more than 50 such waivers for 2016 and 2017 that affected as many as 2.5 billion gallons in biofuel volume.Shaw listed several reasons why EPA should outright reject the small-refinery exemptions (SREs). The biggest reason, Shaw said, is the low price for Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs), the blending credits attached to every gallon of biofuels. A year ago, RINs were trading at 60-plus cents per gallon. Now the D6 RIN price is closer to 10 cents per gallon. Shaw said there have been reports of RINs now trading at 8 cents per gallon.“If you can justify granting small-refinery exemptions under today’s circumstances, where you can buy a RIN for 8 cents, then what EPA would really be saying is it’s always going to grant small-refinery exemptions,” Shaw said. “Then, the hope of a 15-billion-gallon RFS is dead. That is not what Congress intended, nor is that what President [Donald] Trump promised.”The 39 exemptions, if all approved, would affect roughly 1 billion gallons in ethanol demand. “This happens at a time when our farmers in rural America can least afford it,” Naig said.While acknowledging EPA has authority to grant the exemptions, Naig said EPA also has the authority to grant exemptions in a way that doesn’t harm the biofuels industry as well.“I think [EPA] Administrator [Andrew] Wheeler inherited quite a mess when it comes to this issue,” Naig said. “I think it’s an opportunity to do the right thing here.” He added, “So, we could call on EPA and on Wheeler to do the right thing.”Naig also said any exemptions should require reallocating those obligated ethanol gallons to other refiners.Shaw said the ethanol industry’s requests to stop the SREs and get final approval of year-round E15 ethanol blends are reasonable requests that have gotten repeated support from President Donald Trump.Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, sent a letter to Energy Secretary Rick Perry last week, alerting him to 39 applications sent to the EPA by companies seeking the small-refinery exemption in the Renewable Fuel Standard. Grassley’s letter raised questions to Perry about the Department of Energy’s scoring for small refiners that EPA uses to grant approval.A recent court case showed EPA approved prior-year exemptions under former administrator Scott Pruitt even though the Energy Department viability scores showed there was no economic reason the refiners needed those exemptions. Pruitt and EPA previously had asserted that all exemptions were based on the Energy Department’s analysis. Grassley’s letter asked the Energy Department for some clarity.Shaw talked Wednesday about Grassley’s letter. Shaw called on Congress to determine whether Pruitt misled Congress about the way EPA uses the Department of Justice recommendations.Naig deflected a question about whether RFS small-refinery exemptions would hurt President Trump’s support with farmers, given the challenges farmers have faced with trade. Naig said he believed trade deals would get done and the White House would make the right decisions on the RFS.“At a time when we are facing enough challenge, we don’t need anymore,” Shaw said.Chris Clayton can be reached at Chris.Clayton@dtn.comFollow him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(AG/CZ )© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Roger Federer shines on a soggy day at the Miami Open

first_imgWintry storm delivers US travel woes before Thanksgiving Colombia protesters vow new strike after talks hit snag “They just don’t happen often enough,” Federer said of that 6-0 first set. “I think I played a really, solid, nice first set with very few mistakes.”Mistakes doomed Halep, who lost to fifth-seeded Pliskova 7-5, 6-1. Pliskova was up 5-0 in the second set when play was interrupted — for at least the sixth time Thursday — by rain shortly before midnight. Halep, the No. 2 seed, would have replaced Naomi Osaka as the top-ranked women’s player if she won the semifinal.She led 5-3 in the opening set, and just unraveled. Pliskova won nine consecutive games before the skies opened during a changeover. After waiting about an hour for the rain to stop and the court to be dried, she needed only four more minutes of play and finished out the match at 1:11 a.m. — or 6:11 a.m. Friday in her native Czech Republic, 7:11 a.m. Friday in Halep’s native Romania.So the day’s winners were Federer, Shapovalov, Barty, Pliskova and the rain.“We can’t control the weather,” Barty said.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Bloomberg: US would benefit from more, not fewer, immigrants Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Google Philippines names new country director Barty walked away from tennis about five years ago, saying she was basically burned out at 17.

And now at 22, she’s better than ever.The 12th-seeded Barty endured enduring three rain delays on Thursday before ousting 21st-seeded Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 6-3 in the first women’s semifinal. Next up is the biggest final of her singles career, against Pliskova.“Obviously, I’ve been doing the right things throughout the week to put be able to put myself in a position to play for a title,” Barty said. “You have to go out there and embrace it.”Barty, who will rise to a career-best No. 9 in the world ranking next week, was to take the court for the semifinal against Kontaveit at 1 p.m. Rain pushed their start time back to 2:08, and the delays were just getting started.They got three games — six minutes of tennis — in before the first in-match delay stopped things for more than two hours. They got another game in before more rain arrived, prompting another two-hour delay.At 7:32 p.m., finally, Barty could celebrate. Kontaveit fended off one match point with a forehand drop shot, but was ousted by an ace on the following point. Barty was down 3-1 in the second, but won the final five games.“Very long day,” said Barty, who passed the time in the locker room by drinking coffee and watching golf. “But for me, it’s an opportunity to come out and play another match.”Federer is 37 years old. That’s the combined age of the two Canadian teens in the men’s semifinals — Shapovalov, 19, will face Federer on Friday night, and the 18-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime will meet defending Miami champion John Isner of the U.S. earlier Friday.“It’s great for the game because they will carry the sport when we’re long gone and we’ll be sitting on the couch watching those guys slug it out,” Federer said about the young Canadians. “It’ll be a joy to watch because not only are they great, great players but they’re good people, too.”Shapovalov reached the semifinals by beating 28th-seeded Frances Tiafoe 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-2 — the third time in four matches at this tournament that he rallied from a set down before prevailing. And the success for Auger-Aliassime and Shapovalov in Miami follows the story of 18-year-old Canadian Bianca Andreescu winning the title at Indian Wells earlier this month.

Davor Suker wants revenge from the 60 defeat vs Spain

first_imgCroatian legend Davor Suker is feeling quite hurt about the last match between Spain and Croatia, a 6-0 defeat for which he wants revenge.During the last UEFA Nations League match between Spain and Croatia, the Balkans side suffered a very painful defeat that Croatian Football Federation President witnessed from the stands.This loss came during a year in which his national team proved that they are at a top level of performance by reaching the final in Russia, but they weren’t at the top of their level that day and they suffered the wrath of Luis Enrique’s side with goals scored by players like Saul, Sergio Ramos, Rodrigo, Marco Asensio, and Isco.Now that the situation will be reversed and Croatia will play as local, Suker believes there is a great chance for his side to get some sweet revenge even if manager Dalic already confirmed that his squad is not after such retaliation.This match looks like it will be very different compared to the last time they met, Suker is convinced that the World Cup runners-up have learned their lesson and they will take full advantage of their own stadium in Zagreb this Thursday.Suker: “Of course we want our revenge on Spain for that 6-0 drubbing in Elche” https://t.co/sg4k1RC5yr #NationsLeague #Croatia #Spain pic.twitter.com/OwDpf1hjm2— AS English (@English_AS) November 14, 2018Davor Suker is one of Croatia’s biggest football idols, he reached the World Cup semifinals back in the 1998 World Cup and was the tournament’s top scorer.The chairman offered an interview to Diario AS about the upcoming match, where he spoke about several topics but the main one was related mostly about the upcoming match that will start only a few hours from now.“Of course we feel disappointed after the result from the Elche match, where a lot of things didn’t go as planned and the final result was a defeat,” said Suker during the interview.“I’m convinced that the national team manager and the players are motivated to prove that such result was nothing but a bad day and that’s it, especially with what awaits us after the World Cup, this will be the first match we play with all the followers inside the stadium.”“I believe that we are going to have all the support from the fans who will be cheering from the stands inside the stadium.”Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns.
