Some 1.24 billion (D6) blending credits were generated in June, down from 1.29 billion in May, and 357 million biodiesel (D4) blending credits were generated in June, compared with 382.7 million a month earlier.

The credits are used by oil refiners and importers to show compliance with EPA-mandated ethanol blending quotas for petroleum-based fuels. They are generated with every gallon of biofuel produced.

The following is a table of monthly credit generation for the year by credit type:
