Rulemaking - Clean Fuels Program Rule and Air Quality Fee Rule

Rule proposal notice
Ecology is proposing a new rule, Clean Fuels Program Rule, Chapter 173-424 WAC, and changing an existing rule, Air Quality Fee Rule, Chapter 173-455 WAC.
The proposed rule:
  • Establishes carbon intensity standards for transportation fuels used in Washington.
  • Assigns compliance obligations to fuels with carbon intensities that exceed the standard.
  • Establishes compliance methods including assigning credits to fuels that have carbon intensities below the standard.

Ecology is also proposing amendments to Chapter 173-455 WAC, Air Quality Fee Rule, to establish the process for setting fees to recover the costs of developing and implementing the program.
