CRA looks forward to collaborating further with the EPA to achieve regulatory clarity on the issue of biogenic CO2 emissions as a way to advance President Biden’s climate and bioeconomy objectives. Thank you, Administrator Regan, for working with industry leaders and for your commitment to working with the food and agriculture sectors to address critical environmental issues.”
