Was Jatropha analyzed for this final rule and, if so, what D-code applies?

The GHG emissions performance of a Jatropha-based pathway was not analyzed for the final rule because sufficient information was not available. Since EPA has not yet assigned a D code for this pathway, a producer cannot generate RINs for biofuels made from Jatropha unless the facility has been grandfathered according to 80.1403 and 80.1426(f)(6), and the fuel meets all other components of the definition of "renewable fuel" including the renewable biomass requirement.
