2015 Renewable Fuel Standard data

Data are current as of August 10, 2016.

  • RIN Generation Summary

    RINs Generated

    • RIN Generation Error Corrections are defined as RINs that have been retired in EMTS using any of the three retirement reason codes of Invalid RIN, Import Volume Error Correction, or Volume Error Correction.
    • Net RINs generated shows the total number of RINs generated minus the invalid RINs generated.

    RIN Generation by Producer Type

    This table displays the total number of RINs generated by importers, domestic renewable fuel producers, and foreign renewable fuel producers.

    • Foreign renewable fuel producer may generate RINs if they meet the RFS2 requirements (40 CFR 80.1466). 
    • Importers may generate RINs for fuel generated by foreign renewable fuel producers (including undenatured ethanol producers) if the foreign renewable fuel producer does not generate RINs for that volume.

  • Available RINs to Date

    Total Available RINs to Date

    This table displays the total number of RINs generated, retired, locked, and available for all captured 2015 months, broken out by assignment.

    Total Generated = Total Retired (Assigned and Separated) + Total Available (Locked and Unlocked)
    Total Available = Total Locked (Assigned and Separated) + Total Unlocked (Assigned and Separated)

    • RINs may be retired for compliance purposes or other reasons (e.g. reported spills delayed RIN retirement)
    • Available RINs may be unlocked/locked by registered company submitters at any time. Locked RINs are "available" however, they may not be used in EMTS transactions until unlocked.
    • RINs may only be separated (no longer assigned to a batch of renewable fuel) for specific allowed activities. For more information on RIN separation, see the RFS2 regulations: 40 CFR 80.1429. RINs must be separated before they can be used for compliance purposes by obligated parties or renewable fuel exporters.
