EPA issues exemption of biodiesel from Chemical Data Reporting rule

April 4, 2016 |

In Washington, the EPA issued a final rule amending the list of chemical substances that are partially exempt from reporting additional information under the Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) rule. EPA has determined that, based on the totality of information available on the chemical substances listed in this final rule, there is a low current interest in their CDR processing and use information. EPA reached this conclusion after considering a number of factors, including the risk of adverse human health or environmental effects, information needs for CDR processing and use information, and the availability of other sources of comparable processing and use information.

Those exempt include:

  • Fatty acids, C14-18 and C16-18 unsaturated, methyl esters (Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) No. 67762-26-9);
  • Fatty acids, C16-18 and C-18 unsaturated, methyl esters (CAS No. 67762-38-3);
  • Fatty acids, canola oil, methyl esters (CAS No.129828-16-6);
  • Fatty acids, corn oil, methyl esters (CAS No. 515152-40-6);
  • Fatty acids, tallow, methyl esters (CAS No. 61788-61-2); and
  • Soybean oil, methyl esters (CAS No. 67784-80-9).
