EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AR21 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: RFS Pathways II and Amendments to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) 
Abstract: In May, EPA issued a proposal to amend the RFS2 regulations to facilitate the introduction of new renewable fuels and improve implementation of the program. The proposal included various new renewable fuel pathways that will enhance the ability of the biofuels industry to supply advanced biofuels, including cellulosic biofuels, to the market. The proposed amendments would allow renewable diesel, renewable naphtha, and renewable electricity (used in electric vehicles) produced from landfill biogas to generate cellulosic or advanced biofuel renewable identification numbers (RINs). Renewable compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced from landfill biogas are also proposed to generate cellulosic RINs, and EPA proposed to allow butanol to qualify as an advanced biofuel. The rulemaking also proposed a clarification regarding the definition of crop residue to include corn kernel fiber and proposed an approach to determining the volume of cellulosic RINs from various cellulosic feedstocks. The proposed rule includes minor amendments to the regulations for E15 misfueling mitigation regulations to improve implementation. Finally, EPA proposed to reduce the survey requirements associated with the ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) program in view of the high compliance rate that has been achieved.
