Rule Summary

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.

This Direct Final Rulemaking (DFRM) clarifies the data sources and methodology used to calculate the Cellulosic Waiver Credit (CWC) price. It also amends the regulations to remove the CWC prices from the Code of Federal Regulations. Instead, they will be announced in a more timely fashion on EPA’s website. Finally, the DFRM reinserts language in the renewable fuels program regulations inadvertently overwritten by the Quality Assurance Program final rule.
