The U.S. EPA has released data showing nearly 1.56 billion renewable identification numbers (RINs) were generated under the Renewable Fuel Standard in October, down from 1.73 billion generated during the same month of last year.

According to the EPA, 44.5 million D3 cellulosic biofuel RINs were generated in October, including 34.06 million generated for compressed renewable natural gas (RNG) by domestic producers, 7.35 million generated for liquefied RNG by domestic producers, 2.91 million generated for compressed RNG by importers, and 173,213 generated for cellulosic ethanol by domestic producers.

Total D3 RIN generation for the first 10 months of the year reached nearly 367.12 million. That volume includes 280.11 million generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers, 59.48 million generated for liquefied RNG by domestic producers, 15.28 million generated for compressed RNG by importers, 10.32 million generated for liquefied RNG by importers, and 1.82 million generated for cellulosic ethanol by domestic producers.

More than 332.61 million D4 biomass-based diesel RINs were generated in October, including 224.15 million for biodiesel by domestic producers, 49.74 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 35.5 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 22.92 million generated for biodiesel by importers, and 301,466 generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers.

Total D4 RIN generation for the first 10 months of 2020 reached 3.64 billion. That volume includes 2.26 billion generated for biodiesel by domestic producers, 663 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 478.41 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 237.44 million generated for biodiesel by importers, and 6.76 million generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers.

More than 25.25 million D5 advanced biofuel RINs were generated in October, including 16.84 million generated for ethanol by importers, 5.02 million generated for renewable diesel by domestic producers, 1.99 million generated for ethanol by domestic producers,  961,902 generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 271,947 generated for LPG by domestic producers, 169,488 generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, and 7,669 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

Total D5 RIN generation for the first 10 months of the year reached nearly 249.84 million. That volume includes  138.16 million generated for ethanol by importers, 59.78 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 27.23 million generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 19.26 million generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 3.13 million generated for LPG by domestic producers, 2.21 million generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, and 61,073 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

More than 1.15 billion D6 renewable fuel RINs were generated in October, including 1.14 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 15.26 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, and 135,328 generated for ethanol by importers.

Total D6 RIN generation for the first 10 months of 2020 reached 10.68 billion. That volume includes 10.56 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 112.27 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 9.06 million generated for ethanol by importers, and 572 generated for butanol by domestic producers.

No D7 cellulosic diesel RINs have been generated so far this year.

According to the EPA, approximately 14.94 billion RINs were generated under the RFS during the first 10 months of 2020, down from 16.42 billion generated during the same period of 2019.
