By Erin Voegele | August 27, 2020

The U.S. EPA has released renewable identification number (RIN) data for July, reporting that 1.62 billion RINs were generated during the month under the Renewable Fuel Standard, up from 1.51 billion RINs generated in June.

More than 40.63 million D3 cellulosic biofuel RINs were generated in July, including 30.89 million generated for compressed renewable natural gas (RNG) by domestic producers, 6.79 million generated for liquified RNG by domestic producers, 1.88 million generated for compressed RNG by importers, 809,299 generated for liquefied RNG by importers, and 256,193 generated for cellulosic ethanol by domestic producers.

Total D3 RIN generation for the first seven months of 2020 reached 223.85 million. That volume includes 177.93 million generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers, 37.73 million generated for liquefied RNG by domestic producers, 9.85 million generated for RNG by importers, 7.04 million generated for compressed RNG by importers, and 1.11 million generated for cellulosic ethanol by domestic producers.

More than 382.23 million D4 biomass-based diesel RINs were generated in July, including 243.78 million generated for biodiesel by domestic producers, 72.96 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 36.44 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 26.59 million generated for biodiesel by importers, and 2.46 million generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers.

Total D4 RIN generation for the first seven months of the year reached 2.48 billion. That volume includes I.52 billion generated for biodiesel by domestic producers, 482.62 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 299.46 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 173.38 million generated for biodiesel by importers, and 5.76 million generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers.

Nearly 28.79 million D5 advanced biofuel RINs were generated in July, including 22.04 million generated for ethanol by importers, 3.15 million generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 1.8 million generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 1.26 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 458,114 generated for LPG by domestic producers, 65,164 generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, and 10,378 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

Total D5 RIN generation for the first seven months of 2020 reached 141.74 million. That volume includes 66.36 million generated for ethanol by importers, 38.45 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 16.91 million generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 13.44 million generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 1.46 generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, 2.04 million generated for LPG by domestic producers, and 34,676 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

Nearly 1.17 billion D6 renewable fuel RINs were generated in July, including nearly 1.17 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 831,504 generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, and 572 generated for butanol by domestic producers.

Total D6 RIN generation for the first seven months of the year reached 7.28 billion. That volume includes 7.19 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 91.37 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 5.43 million generated for ethanol by importers, and 572 generated for butanol.

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

According to EPA data, total RIN generation for the first seven months of 2020 was more than 10.14 billion, compared to 11.45 billion generated during the same period of last year.
