TABLE-U.S. creation of renewable fuel credits rises in March -EPA

NEW YORK, April 19 (Reuters) - The United States generated
higher numbers of renewable fuel blending credits in March
compared with February, the Environmental Protection Agency said
on Thursday.
Some 1.23 billion ethanol (D6) blending credits were
generated in March, up slightly from 1.13 billion in February,
and 300 million biodiesel (D4) blending credits were generated
in March, compared with 246 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.
