EPA Levies Fines for Invalid Biodiesel RINs


Ira Wexler/NATSO

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) last week announced that it levied fines against 30 renewable fuel exporters that purchased invalid biodiesel identification numbers (RINs). The RINs were fraudulently generated by Clean Green Fuels LLC and Absolute Fuels LLC. Fines range from less than $500 to $350,000. In addition to pursuing enforcement actions against the companies that generated the invalid RINs, EPA said it has implemented an interim enforcement response policy for exporters who used invalid RINs generated by these two companies.
