Fuels Registration, Reporting, and Compliance Help

While there is no renewable fuel obligation under the RFS2 program for the production or importation of conventional jet fuel, RINs can be generated for renewable jet fuel. Is that right?

As described in 80.1407, only gasoline and diesel fuels produced or imported into the U.S. are subject to the renewable fuel standards. Thus, only gasoline and diesel fuel volumes produced or imported by an obligated party factor into their RVOs (renewable fuel volume obligations) calculated in 80.1407.

Therefore, jet fuel production or importation is not subject to the renewable fuel standards. However, producers or importers of renewable jet fuel can generate RINs to represent that jet fuel if their fuel meets the definition of renewable fuel in 80.1401 and EPA has approved a D code pursuant to Table 1 to 80.1426 or 80.1416.
