Herb Estreicher Quoted in InsideTSCA Article on the Need for EPA to Apply ‘Natural’ Exemption to Biofuels

Keller and Heckman Partner Herb Estreicher was quoted in the InsideTSCA article, “EPA Faces Renewed Calls to Apply TSCA ‘Natural’ Exemption To Biofuels.” The article focuses on Herb’s calls for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to broaden the definition of “natural” substances under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) when reviewing biofuels instead of subjecting them to pre-manufacture notices. As Herb explains, “it will still be the case that many biofuels will be considered new chemicals and will have to go through the PMN process, probably unnecessarily so, and that many of them will be regulated.” He goes on to describe that the current process, “doesn’t cover … plant extracts or algae or other sources of biofuels.”
