Register with the Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that all fuel manufacturers who will sell their fuel in the United States to register with them by completing Form 3520-12. Additional information about this process is available from the EPA web site. The EPA registration process currently requires biodiesel and/or renewable diesel producers to provide a laboratory analysis of the fuel being registered. This laboratory analysis will need to indicate the fuel’s
compliance with appropriate ASTM specifications. Due to this laboratory analysis requirement, biodiesel and/or renewable diesel producers will NOT be able to complete this registration with
the EPA until they are able to begin producing fuel. Without EPA registration, biodiesel and/or renewable diesel producers are not legally able to sell their fuel in the United States.
