By Erin Voegele | November 17, 2022

The U.S. EPA on Nov. 17 released data showing nearly 1.81 billion renewable identification numbers (RINs) were generated under the Renewable Fuel Standard in October, up from 1.71 billion generated during the same month of last year. Total RIN generation for the first 10 months of 2022 reached 17.42 billion, up from 16.13 billion generated during the same period of 2021.

Nearly 58.88 million D3 cellulosic biofuel RINs were generated in October, including 48.81 million generated for compressed renewable natural gas (RNG) by domestic producers, 6.79 million generated for liquefied RNG by domestic producers, 2.02 million generated for compressed RNG by imports, 1.23 million generated for liquefied RNG by importers and 28,784 generated for cellulosic ethanol by domestic producers.

Total D3 RIN generation for the first 10 months of the year reached 489.89 million. That volume includes 397.86 million generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers, 63.67 million generated for liquefied RNG by domestic producers, 22.86 million generated for compressed RNG by importers, 4.39 million generated for liquefied RNG by importers, and 1.12 million generated for cellulosic ethanol by domestic producers.

More than 476.94 million D4 biomass-based diesel RINs were generated in October, including 206.81 million generated for biodiesel by domestic producers, 183.51 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 57.83 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 25.96 million generated for biodiesel by importers, and 2.82 million generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers.

Total D4 RIN generation for the first 10 months of the year reached 4.62 billion. That volume includes nearly 2 billion generated for biodiesel by domestic producers, 1.82 billion generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 531.55 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, 245.21 million generated for biodiesel by importers, 12.26 million generated for renewable jet fuel by domestic producers, and 10.37 million generated for renewable jet fuel by foreign entities.

More than 34.51 million D5 advanced biofuel RINs were generated in October, including 17.83 million generated for ethanol by importers, 8.79 million generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 4.9 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 2.37 million generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 302,221 generated for LPG by domestic producers, 239,107 generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, and 70,199 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

Total D5 RIN generation for the first 10 months of 2022 reached 257.6 million. That volume includes 94.06 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by domestic producers, 72.96 million generated for naphtha by domestic producers, 59.09 million generated for ethanol by importers, 24.4 million generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 3.72 million generated for LPG by domestic producers, 2.5 million generated for renewable heating oil by domestic producers, and 857,653 generated for compressed RNG by domestic producers.

Nearly 1.24 billion D6 renewable fuel RINs were generated in October, including 1.21 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 22.3 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, and 1.22 million generated for ethanol by importers.

Total D6 RIN generation for the first 10 months of 2022 reached nearly 12.06 billion. That volume includes 11.95 billion generated for ethanol by domestic producers, 92.13 million generated for nonester renewable diesel by foreign entities, and 11.63 million generated for ethanol by importers.

No D7 cellulosic diesel RINs were generated in October. Total D7 RIN generation for the first 10 months of the year reached 202,455, all of which were generated for cellulosic heating oil by importers.
