UPDATE 1-U.S. generated fewer renewable fuel credits in September, EPA says

(Adds background, table) NEW YORK, Oct 20 (Reuters) - The United States generated fewer renewable fuel blending credits in September versus the month prior, data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) showed on Thursday. About 1.13 billion ethanol (D6) blending credits were generated last month versus 1.27 billion in August, according to the data. About 501 million biodiesel (D4) blending credits were generated in September versus 453 million in the month prior. 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.
