Renewable fuel is eligible to generate Renewable Identification Numbers (RIN) credits when it is produced with the intent to be used as transportation fuel, heating oil, or jet fuel in the contiguous 48 states and Hawaii;
Each RIN credit generated represents one ethanol-gallon equivalent of qualifying renewable fuel. These credits are used for compliance and are the “currency” of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program needed for blenders and refiners of fossil fuels to fulfill the EPA-specified Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs); and
Renewable Fuel Standard requires blenders and refiners to annually purchase and retire RINs based on the volume of gasoline and/or diesel produced to satisfy their RVO requirement, which is calculated and established by the EPA annually.
