Title: Supplemental Determinations for Renewable Fuels Produced Under the Final RFS2 Program From Palm Oil 

As indicated in the final rule for the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) Program, while the Agency issued lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) threshold determinations for the major fuel pathways projected to meet the bulk of the RFS volume mandates, assessments of other new fuel pathways such as biofuels produced from palm oil, could not be completed in time for the final rule. In the process of assessing these fuels, the Agency is issuing determinations through several supplemental notices to the final rule, including Palm Oil.
