EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AR76 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: ●Renewable Fuel 2014 Volume Standards 
Abstract: In response to the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA), which amended the Clean Air Act section 211(o), EPA finalized the RFS2 program regulations. The new provisions also require EPA to promulgate regulations that specify the annual statutory volume requirements for renewable fuels, including cellulosic biofuel, biomass-based diesel, advanced biofuel, and total renewable fuel that must be used in transportation fuel annually. In the case of the cellulosic biofuel standard, the Act specifically requires that the standard be set based on the volume projected to be available during the following year. If the volumes are lower than those specified under the Act, then EPA may also lower the advanced biofuel and total renewable fuel standards each year accordingly. Further, the Act requires the Administrator to promulgate rules establishing the applicable volumes of biomass-based diesel for 2013 and beyond and to do so no later than 14 months before the year for which such applicable volume will apply. This action will also propose and finalize the 2014 biomass based diesel (BBD) volume along with all the 2014 standards. This regulatory action will establish, as required, the annual statutory volume requirements for the RFS2 fuel categories (cellulosic, biomass-based diesel, advanced biofuel, and renewable fuel) that apply to all gasoline and diesel produced or imported in 2014 and set, at minimum, the 2014 BBD requirement. Entities potentially affected by this final rule are those involved with the production, distribution, and sale of transportation fuels, including gasoline and diesel fuel or renewable fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel.
