Available RINs

Total Available RINs to Date Report

(Click on the dropdown box to change displayed report)

  • This table displays the total number of RINs generated, retired, locked, and available for all captured 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) under specific conditions . For more information on RIN separation, see the RFS regulations at 40 CFR 80.1429. RINs must be separated before they can be used for compliance purposes.

RIN Holdings Report

(Click on the dropdown box to change displayed report)

The RIN Holdings dataset provides a summary of the total RINs being held by balance year and balance quarters starting from RIN year 2010. For a given compliance year, the total number of prior year RINs available is the number of RINs generated in that year that are not yet retired, expired or otherwise used by obligated parties for compliance purposes . Not all prior year RINs may be available for meeting obligated parties’ renewable volume obligations for a given compliance year. For more information, see 40 CFR 80.1427.

This dataset inventories information on the types of parties that are holding RINs, and the volume of RINs by fuel codes. The table displays holdings of RINs grouped by year of RIN generation, RIN type (D-code), and category of RIN holder for specified dates. The RIN holdings summary shows the relative distribution of RIN ownership at specific points in time.

Export Table will export the data as a CSV file.

Regulatory Categories

Each entity in EMTS is grouped into one of the following five categories. To prevent double counting, entities with activity under two or more categories are aggregated under only one category from the list below, starting with “Refiner.” As an example, if an entity had activity that was both an “Exporter” and a “RIN Originator,” the entity would only be grouped under “Exporter.”

  1. Refiner - Refiner of gasoline or diesel (an Obligated Party under the RFS program). This category groups together any company that retired any amount of RINs during a compliance year using the “demonstrate annual compliance” retirement with a compliance level of “aggregated refiner” or “refinery by refinery” in EMTS.
  2. Importer - Importer of gasoline or diesel (an Obligated Party under the RFS program). This category groups together any company that retired any amount of RINs during a compliance year using the “demonstrate annual compliance” retirement with a compliance level of “aggregated importer” in EMTS.
  3. Exporter - Exporter of renewable fuel. This category groups together any company that retired any amount of RINs during a compliance year using the “demonstrate annual compliance” retirement with a compliance level of “aggregated exporter” in EMTS.
  4. RIN Originator – Domestic renewable fuel producer or renewable fuel importer. This category groups together any company that generated any amount of RINs during a compliance year in EMTS.
  5. RIN Owner – Any company that owned or transacted any amount of RINs during a compliance year in EMTS but did not retire RINs for compliance or generate any RINs.

The aggregated RIN sales transactions and holding aggregated data are from EMTS and are specific to RINs generated starting from year 2010. Year 2010 was a transition year from RFS1 to RFS2. The Year 2010 RINs in these tables include only RFS2 RINs generated in EMTS after July 1, 2010.
