Florida Men Sentenced In Biodiesel Fraud To Tune Of $46 Mil

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

The U.S. Department of Justice said on Tuesday, the latest in a string of such cases involving the national biofuel program, two Florida men were each sentenced to more than a decade in prison in a more than $46 million biodiesel fraud scheme.
The Justice Department said in a statement on Tuesday, Thomas Davanzo of Estero and Robert Fedyna of Naples were sentenced on Monday for a scheme with co-conspirators at Gen-X Energy Group in Pasco, Washington, and subsidiary Southern Resources and Commodities in Dublin, Georgia.
The sentencing comes as the White House reviews a plan from environmental regulators on the amount of renewable fuel that companies must use next year.
Davanzo and Fedyna were accused of buying fuel that had already been sold with compliance credits. The credits are known as Renewable Identification Numbers, or RINs, used for the country's biofuel program. The statement said, the conspirators fraudulently claimed more credits on the fuel.
