On Oct. 19, the U.S. EPA delivered its proposed rule to set renewable fuel standard (RFS) volumes for 2017 and biomass-based diesel volumes for 2018 to the White House Office of Management and Budget. OBM review marks a last step before a final rule is issued.

The proposed rule was first issued by EPA on May 18. It aims to set RFS renewable volume obligations (RVOs) for 2017, along with the 2018 RVO for biomass-based diesel. In the proposed rule, the agency suggested setting the 2017 RVO for advanced biofuel at 4 billion ethanol-equivalent gallons, or 2.67 biodiesel-equivalent gallons, cellulosic biofuel at 312 million gallons, and total renewable fuel at 18.8 billion gallons. The 2018 RVO for biomass-based diesel has been proposed at 2.1 billion gallons.
