Clean Fuels Program 2024

Proposed rule

Rulemaking contact: Bill Peters, 503-863-6259

The primary goal of this rulemaking is to update the requirements and tools used to account for greenhouse gas emissions for the Clean Fuels Program. Routine updates are needed to stay current with the latest science and remain harmonized with regional transportation fuels policy. 

Topics that will be under consideration for this rulemaking may include:

  • Updates the OR-GREET model and simplified Tier 1 calculators used to calculate carbon intensity values for fuels in Oregon, in alignment with updates occurring in California
  • Adding new requirements for high-risk fuel pathways
  • Requiring third party verification for additional types of reports
  • Requiring validation for some fuel pathway applications 

On Jan. 30, 2024 DEQ will hold a workshop to outline key topics for the 2024 Clean Fuels Program rulemaking for early consideration and feedback. DEQ will present on revising the OR-GREET model used for fuel carbon intensity calculations, updating the Third Party Verification rules for CFP reports, and proposing other rule modifications based on implementing the program since the last rulemaking. Meeting materials will be posted on this page closer to the date of the workshop. 

​Rulemaking Workshop: Jan. 30, 2024, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Register via Zoom

A rulemaking advisory committee will be convened at a future date closer to the time when the formal rulemaking process will begin in Spring 2024.​​
