The 2017 Renewable Fuel Standard announced Wednesday requires that 4.28 billion gallons of the total must be advanced biofuels, including 2 billion gallons of biodiesel and 311 million gallons of cellulosic biofuels.

The requirement includes an implied 15 billion gallons of conventional ethanol.

The EPA also set 2018 biodiesel requirements at 2.1 billion gallons.

The EPA biofuels target announcement was supporting NYMEX RBOB futures Wednesday, which were the strongest element in the oil complex.

At 1501 GMT, NYMEX December RBOB was up 21 points at $1.4119/gal after having traded as high as $1.4226/gal on the news. The front-month RBOB crack against WTI was up 58 cents at $11.93/b.

The rule will go into effect 60 days after its publication in the Federal Register, which typically happens within weeks.
