Frequent Questions

5. Do you have any updates on the status of EPA’s modeling of palm oil biodiesel?

A: EPA is actively continuing its FRM evaluation of biodiesel produced from palm oil. We expect to complete that analysis within approximately 6 months, as stated in the preamble to the final rule. All currently available documents including meeting records and formal comments to the proposal regarding palm oil based biodiesel are in the current docket. However, as EPA continues its analysis, additional material may be provided by experts or analyses conducted by EPA which will then be added to the docket to form the complete record of the final action. Until the analyses are complete it would be inappropriate to speculate on the likely results of the analyses.
