You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.

EPA has identified additional renewable fuel production pathways and pathway components that could be used in producing qualifying renewable fuel under the RFS program. This final rule describes EPA’s evaluation of biofuels produced from camelina oil and energy cane, as well as renewable gasoline and renewable gasoline blendstock made from certain qualifying feedstocks. 

Rule History

On February 27, 2012, EPA published a notice to withdraw the amendments to the RFS2 regulations issued via direct final rule on January 5, 2012. The amendments would have expanded Table 1 of § 80.1426 to identify additional renewable fuel production pathways and pathway components that could be used in producing qualifying renewable fuel under the RFS2 program. EPA intends to address all comments in a subsequent final action, which will be based on the parallel proposed rule also published on January 5, 2012 (77 FR 462). As stated in the direct final rule and the parallel proposed rule, we will not institute a second comment period on this action.
