Leaders from the U.S. biofuel industry said the Obama administration's Environmental Protection Agency has undermined the commercial success of their industry and left them "in suspended animation," reports the Star Tribune.

The president of the Advanced Biofuels Association, Michael McAdams, said the EPA's decision to reduce the level of advanced biofuels that must be blended into the nation's fuel supply has "pulled the rug out from under the industry."

McAdams made his comments at the Advanced Biofuels Conference & Expo in Minneapolis earlier this month. Producers of ethanol, biodiesel, and other biofuels attended the event.
