Final Renewable Fuel Volumes 2014 2015 2016 2017 Cellulosic biofuel (million gallons) 33 123 230 n/a Biomass-based diesel (billion gallons) 1.63 1.73 1.90 2.00 Advanced biofuel (billion gallons) 2.67 2.88 3.61 n/a All Renewable fuel (billion gallons) 16.28 16.93 18.11 n/a (Units for all volumes are ethanol-equivalent, except for biomass-based diesel volumes which are expressed as physical gallons.) Final Percentage Standards 2014 2015 2016 Cellulosic biofuel […]
