EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AQ31 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: ●Regulation of Fuels and Fuel Additives: Modifications to Renewable Fuel Standard Program 
Abstract: In the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA 2007), Congress amended the Clean Air Act (CAA) to change requirements for the existing Renewable Fuel Standard program. The final regulations promulgating changes to the Renewable Fuel Standard program ("RFS2 regulations") were published in the Federal Register on March 26, 2010 (75 FR 14670). Since publication, EPA has discovered a number of technical errors and areas within the final RFS2 regulations that could benefit from clarification. Many of the amendments address grammatical or typographical errors, or provide clarifications to the regulatory language. A few amendments are being made in order to correct regulatory language that inadvertently misrepresented our intent as reflected in the preamble to the final RFS2 regulations. Examples of amendments included in this rule are a clarification that the independent engineering reviews can be conducted by a licensed professional engineer, rather than the more limited “Professional Chemical Engineer” and a clarification that the renewable biomass aggregate compliance approach applies to feedstocks from existing U.S. agricultural land, rather than to U.S. producers of renewable fuel. The final RFS2 regulations will become effective July 1, 2010. This technical amendments package is important in order to correct technical errors and address areas in the regulations that need clarification simultaneous with the effective date of the final regulations.
