ERG, an EPA contractor, is organizing an independent external peer review of EPA's draft report, Biofuels and the Environment: Third Triennial Report to Congress. Under Section 204 of the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act, EPA is required to submit, on a triennial basis, a report to Congress on the impacts to date and likely future impacts of the Renewable Fuel Standard Program. The draft of the third report in this series, Biofuels and the Environment: Third Triennial Report to Congress (RtC3), is the subject of this peer review. This draft document was prepared by the Center for Public Health and Environmental Assessment within U.S. EPA's Office of Research and Development. The peer review process includes a virtual meeting at which the peer reviewers will discuss their responses to EPA's charge questions.
