The ruling is seen as a partial victory for the American Petroleum Institute (API), which challenged the mandate arguing that EPA was requiring refiners to use a fuel that was not commercially available or face fines.

This cellulosic ethanol takes organic matter out of the ground (should be tilled under!) or at most fed to livestock rather than up the cost of feed -AGAIN.
