Frequent Questions

Can exports of high olefins, high benzene, and/or nil oxygen gasolines from the U.S. generate credits for the exporter?

No. Section 80.67(g)(6) provides that oxygen and benzene credits are generated if the actual total for the oxygen standard is greater than the compliance total, or if the actual total for the benzene standard is less than the compliance totals. Exported gasoline is not included in compliance calculations, and, as a result, has no impact on credit creation.(8/29/94)
