Proposed Volume Standards for 2019, and the Biomass-Based Diesel Volume for 2020
On June 26, 2018, EPA issued proposed volume requirements under the Renewable Fuel Standard program for cellulosic biofuel, advanced biofuel, and total renewable fuel for calendar year 2019. EPA also proposed biomass-based diesel volume standards for calendar year 2020. The proposed volume requirements are listed in the table below.
|Cellulosic biofuel (million gallons)||288||381||N/A|
|Biomass-based diesel (billion gallons)||2.1||N/A*||2.43|
|Advanced biofuel (billion gallons)||4.29||4.88||N/A|
|Renewable fuel (billion gallons)||19.29||19.88||N/A|
|Implied conventional biofuel (billion gallons)||15||15||N/A|
*The biomass-based diesel standard for 2019 was set at 2.1 billion gallons in 2018 and cannot be changed.
