Hermes Consolidated, LLC v. EPA

<> Hermes Consolidated, LLC v. EPA - In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 14-1016. Petitioner Wyoming Refining Company operates an oil refinery located in Newcastle, Wyoming. WRC is subject to EPA's renewable fuels program, but obtained an exemption through 2012. WRC unsuccessfully petitioned EPA for an extension of its exemption through 2014. The company now seeks review of EPA's denial.
     The Appeals Court ruled, "We reject WRC's various challenges other than those identifying two mathematical errors in EPA's independent analysis of WRC's financial data. . . We therefore vacate EPA's decision and remand to allow the agency to reevaluate WRC's petition using the correct figures."
