EPA updates RFS data to include refinery exemptions, RIN prices

By Ron Kotrba | September 20, 2018

The U.S. EPA has updated its Renewable Fuel Standard public data web pages by adding new data and information, including the number of small refinery exemption petitions received, approved and denied each compliance year.

The agency has been under pressure from lawmakers and biofuel organizations to be more transparent about the exemption process, which biofuel advocates argue destroys demand for renewable fuels.

Additional new information on the RFS web pages include the weekly average price and volume of RINs traded.
