EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AO81 Publication ID: Spring 2009 
Title: Renewable Fuels Standard Program 
Abstract: This action will implement certain provisions in Title II of the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act that amend section 211(o) of the Clean Air Act. The new law sets a modified standard for renewable fuels increasing the national requirement to 9.0 billion gallons in 2008 and rising to 36 billion gallons by 2022. Of the latter total, 21 billion gallons is required to be obtained from cellulosic biofuels and other advanced biofuels. Starting in 2016, all of the increase in the RFS target must be met with advanced biofuels, defined as cellulosic ethanol and other biofuels derived from feedstock other than corn starch--with explicit standards for cellulosic biofuels and biomass-based diesel.
