An Environmental Protection Agency draft rule setting renewable volume obligations for 2014 was leaked October 11, and showed that the agency is considering general reductions in requirements and an increase in cellulosic biofuels. The draft requirements for 2014 are 15.21 billion gallons of renewable fuel, 23 million gallons of cellulosic biofuel, 1.28 billion gallons of biomass-based diesel, and 2.21 billion gallons of advanced biofuel. It is unclear if any changes have been made since the draft was sent to the Office of Management and Budget on August 30. Later that day, Administrator Gina McCarthy commented that no final decision has been made. The leaked draft rule is attached.
