Biofuel producers seeking to generate RINs for non-grandfathered volumes of biofuel produced from the feedstocks listed in the table above will first need to submit a facility-specific petition. For more information see How to Submit a Complete Petition. In evaluating such petitions, EPA will combine our assessments into a full lifecycle GHG analysis and determine whether the fuel produced at an individual facility satisfies the GHG emission reduction requirements of the Clean Air Act. EPA will analyze:
- the feedstock production and growth information from the relevant Federal Register notice above
- the petitioners’ biofuel production processing data
- emissions associated with the transport and use of the finished biofuel
*The fuel pathway assessments that EPA has conducted for the Renewable Fuel Standard program are available on the Regulations and Standards and Approved Pathways pages.
