... "Once again, refiners are being ordered to use a substance that is not being produced in commercial quantities -- cellulosic ethanol -- and are being required to pay millions of dollars for failing to use this non-existent substance," NPRA President Charles Drevna said in a statement. "This makes no sense."


Of course it does. It's all about the money.

A fine for some perceived "non-compliance" works the same as a tax, except it sounds a lot better when it's not called a tax.

...The EPA acknowledged its higher targets could create uncertainty. And the agency estimates of projected available volumes of cellulosic fuels, based on its analysis of six companies, is higher than the Energy Information Administration's more conservative estimate of 6.9 million gallons in 2012. Still, it said, "Our intention is to balance such uncertainty with the objective of promoting growth in the industry." The EPA decision was slammed by the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association, which said the agency acted "unwisely." "Once again, refiners are being ordered to use a substance that is not being produced in commercial quantities -- cellulosic ethanol -- and are being required to pay millions of dollars for failing to use this non-existent substance," NPRA President Charles Drevna said in a statement. "This makes no sense."."

Actually, it seem to come naturally to them.
