DEQ is proposing changes to the Clean Fuels Program that would:  

  • update the lifecycle carbon intensity models used to determine the carbon intensities of fuels and the resulting changes to carbon intensity scores from those models; Proposed OR-GREET model.
  • add new categories and applications of fuel used to generate credits and add new fuels that could generate credits; and

DEQ also proposes to amend rules under Division 12 of Chapter 340 of the Oregon Administrative Rules to classify certain violations and establish or clarify enforcement criteria for violations of the Oregon Clean Fuels Program.
