EPA made public its final rule setting the 2018 renewable volume obligations (RVOs). Similar to its original proposal from July, EPA used its waiver authority to lower the levels for cellulosic biofuel, advanced biofuels, and total renewable fuel below statutory levels. Levels for biomass-based diesel generally remained steady.

The prior 2015, 2016, and 2017 final volumes and percentage standards are also listed for reference (the previously finalized volumes/percentages are shaded, with newly finalized volumes/percentages not shaded).
