Canola Oil Pathways Final Rulemaking
On this page:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalizes an action to approve Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) pathways for certain biofuels that are produced from canola/rapeseed oil. With this action, these fuel pathways will be eligible to generate Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs), provided they satisfy the other definitional and RIN generation criteria for renewable fuel specified in the RFS regulations.
The biofuels covered by EPA’s final rule include diesel, jet fuel, heating oil, naphtha, and liquefied petroleum gas produced from canola/rapeseed oil via a hydrotreating process. EPA is also amending the RFS regulations by adding a new definition of “canola/rapeseed oil”.
