Section 211 (o)(2)(B)(ii) of the Clean Air Act requires that EPA determine the applicable volume of biomass-based diesel to be used in setting annual percentage standards under the renewable fuel standard program for years after 2012. In doing so, EPA is to coordinate with the Secretary of Energy and the Secretary of Agriculture, and base the volume on a review of the implementation of the program to date and an analysis of six specified factors. EPA issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on July 1, 2011 which proposed a number of actions, including the proposed applicable volume of biomass-based diesel of 1.28 billion gallons that would apply in 2013. After considering public comments on its proposal, EPA published a final rule on September 27, 2012, establishing 1.28 billion gallons as the applicable volume of biomass based diesel for 2013. Petitioners, the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) and the American Petroleum Institute (API) submitted comments to EPA during the comment period on the July 1, 2011, proposed rule, and subsequently each individually submitted a Petition for Reconsideration of the September 27, 2012 final rule.
