By Erin Voegele | April 25, 2022

The U.S. EPA has released updated renewable identification number (RIN) data, reporting that 1.82 billion RINs were generated under the Renewable Fuel Standard in March, up from 1.65 billion that were generated during the same month of last year. Total RIN generation for the first quarter of 2022 was at 4.94 billion, up from 4.31 billion during the first quarter of 2021.

More than 44.45 million D3 cellulosic biofuel RINs were generated in March, including 35.25 million generated for compressed renewable natural gas (RNG) by domestic producers, 6.58 million generated for liquefied RNG by domestic producers, and 2.62 million generated for compressed RNG by importers.

Total D3 RIN generation for the first three months of 2022 reached 93.39 million. That volume includes 74.27 million generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers, 13.43 million generated for liquefied RNG by domestic producers, 5.29 generated for compressed RNG by importers, 318,595 generated for liquefied RNG by importers, and 87,513 generated for cellulosic ethanol by domestic producers.

More than 489.7 million D4 biomass-based diesel RINs were generated in March, including 203.57 million generated for biodiesel by domestic producers, 178.95 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 68.49 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 34.02 million generated for biodiesel by importers, 3.03 million generated for renewable jet fuel by foreign entities, and 1.64 million generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers.

Total D4 RIN generation for the first quarter reached 1.24 billion. That volume includes 505.29 million generated for biodiesel by domestic producers, 484.35 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 178.52 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 63.19 million generated for biodiesel by importers, 5.29 million generated for renewable jet fuel by foreign entities, 4.06 million generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers, and 37,939 generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers.

Approximately 15.29 million D5 advanced biofuel RINs were generated in March, including 6.99 million generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 4.89 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 2.33 generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 460,538 generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, 449,898 generated for LPG by domestic producers, and 173,422 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

Total D5 RIN generation for the first three months of the year reached 59.28 million. That volume includes 19.74 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 19.25 million generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 18.52 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 10.69 million generated for ethanol by importers, 7.32 million generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 1 million generated for LPG by domestic producers, 931,246 generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, and 351,499 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

More than 1.27 billion D6 renewable fuels RINs were generated in March, including 1.26 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 9.78 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, and 1.09 million generated for ethanol by importers.

Total D6 RIN generation for the first quarter of 2022 reached 3.55 billion. That volume includes 3.53 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 22.09 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, and 2.16 million generated for ethanol by importers.

No D7 cellulosic diesel RINs were generated in March. Total D7 RIN generation for the first three months of the year was at 58,930, all of which were generated for cellulosic heating oil by importers.
