                    IMPORTANT REMINDER:

                    Regulated parties are urged to conduct due diligence investigations and
                    exercise caution when conducting gasoline sulfur and benzene credit
                    transactions. Neither EPA nor its systems, including the EPA Moderated
                    Transaction System (EMTS), certify or validate gasoline sulfur or benzene
                    credits. As specified in the regulations at 40 CFR 80.315(b)(2) and 40 CFR
                    80.1295(b)(2), invalid gasoline sulfur and benzene credits cannot be used for
                    compliance, regardless of the party's good faith belief that the credits were
                    valid at the time they were acquired.

Introduction

This user's guide is intended to help users transact credits for the Sulfur and Benzene Averaging,
Banking, and Trading (ABT) program using the EPA Moderated Transaction System (EMTS).

Manage Fuels ABT Holdings

To view your Sulfur and Benzene ABT credit holdings, hover over Fuels ABT Credits on the main
menu of the EMTS website and select Fuels ABT. Only Non-renewable Fuel Importers and Refiners
may participate in the Fuels ABT program; if your organization is not registered with one of those
business activities in the OTAQ Registration system (OTAQREG), you will not see the Fuels ABT
Credits menu or any related functionality. The Manage Fuels ABT Holdings screen is organization-
specific (indicated by the organization name above the Fuels ABT Credit Holdings grid). To switch
the organization for which you are  viewing credit holdings,  open the Organizations tab of the
accordion in the top right corner of the screen, and click "Select a Different Organization."

If you view the Manage Fuels ABT Holdings screen before your organization has  completed  any
generate or buy transactions, the Fuels ABT Credit Holdings grid will be empty. At this point, you can
generate or buy Fuels ABT credits (the only valid transaction types when there are no Fuels ABT
Holdings) by clicking the Generate (Refiner), Generate (Importer) or Buy button. If your organization
is only registered as either a non-renewable fuel importer or a refiner, then you will only see  one
"Generate" option. You can also buy and generate credits using the "I want to..." dropdown menu in
the empty Fuels ABT Holdings grid. See the "Generating Fuels ABT Credits" section below for
additional information.

Once you have completed a generate transaction or successfully purchased credits from a trading
partner, the Fuels ABT Holdings grid will display your credits (see Figure 1).

Each row in the Fuels ABT Holdings grid represents a unique combination of Credit Type and Credit
Year. For each row, the sum of credits in the Available, Pending, and Reserved columns equals the
number of credits in the Total column.  The credits in the Available column are credits that are
available for you to  use in transactions.  The credits in the Pending column are credits that are
involved in a pending sell transaction that you have initiated (see the "Trading Credits" section
below).  The credits in the Reserved column are credits that are associated with transactions in the
Fuels ABT Transaction Bin (see the "Managing the Credit Transaction Bin" section below). You can
filter your credit holdings using the Filter Options  and sort by clicking  the column names. For
example, you can arrange the  data to compare the total number of credits EMTS has processed in
your account to your own off-line transaction records. These data are also available for download in
a variety of formats.

The final column in the Fuels ABT Holdings grid is the "I want to..." column.  The drop-down for each
row contains the options View Details, Generate, Buy, Sell, Retire (Obligation), and Retire (Other). If
you are registered as both a Refiner and a Non-renewable Fuel Importer, you will see two options for
both Generate and Retire (Obligation). If you select a transaction in the "I want to..." column for a row
of Credits, the Credit Type and Credit Year fields in the  resulting transaction wizard will  be pre-
populated with the data from that row.

Generating Fuels ABT Credits
From the Manage Fuels ABT Holdings screen, if your organization is registered as both a non-
renewable fuel importer and a refiner, you have the option to generate credits as either a refiner or
as an importer. If you organization is only registered as either a non-renewable fuel importer or a
refiner, then you will only see one "Generate" option. To generate  credits as a refiner, click the
Generate (Refiner) button or select Generate (Refiner)  in the "I want to..." drop-down (or if you are
only registered as a refiner, select the "Generate" option) and click Go. Doing so opens the first screen
of the two-step Generate Wizard (see Figure 2).

    •  Organization generating the credits;
    •  Generating facility; and
    •  Credit type (Sulfur or Benzene).

registered facility, then Generating Facility will also be pre-populated.

Generating as an Importer has very similar first steps. From the Manage Fuels ABT Holdings screen,
you may also generate credits as an importer. To do so, either click the Generate (Importer) button
or select Generate (Importer) in  the "I want to..." drop-down (or if you are only registered as an
importer, select the "Generate" option) and click Go. Doing so opens the first screen of the two-step

Converting Excel Files to XML

EMTS includes functionality to convert an MS Excel file into a valid XML file. EPA provides a blank
Excel template, which allows users to include all transaction types in one file. It includes general
notes about submitting transactions, user-specific submittal information, and a tab for each

transaction type. The EMTS Excel Conversion Template can be found here
http://www.epa.gov/otaq/fuels/renewablefuels/emtshtml/emtsdocuments.htm.

Important Notes: The transaction types must remain in the same order presented in the template
and the template header rows also must remain unchanged to allow EMTS to process the file.

Required columns have a header that is highlighted yellow. Additional information is included in
column header comments and in the Notes tab. To view comments, hover over the header, as
shown in Figure 7  below.

by any of your organization's submitters will be displayed on the screen. To switch the organization
for which the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin is displayed, click Select a Different Organization. There is
no restriction on the number of transactions that you can add to the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin.

For all transactions in the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin, you have the option to View Details by selecting
View Details in the "I want to..." dropdown and clicking Go. You will be taken to a screen that displays
all  of the details of the credit submission and transaction.  This screen can be used to verify the
contents of the transaction before submitting it. If you find that any information you entered is
incorrect, you can Remove the transaction via the "I want to..." dropdown.

Along with accessing the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin at the end of each wizard, you can navigate to
the Transaction Bin from multiple screens of the EMTS website using the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin
accordion tab on the right side of the screen (see Figure 16).  The tab contains the number of un-
submitted transactions and a link to the Credit Transaction Bin.

Clicking the View Fuels ABT Transaction Bin link opens the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin. Note that the
credits associated with each sell and retire transaction in the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin are Reserved
rather than Available (they show up in the Reserved column of the View Fuels ABT Holdings grid).
As a result, these credits may not be used for any other transactions. If a sell or retire transaction is
removed from the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin, the associated credits return to an Available status.
Credits associated with a generate transaction do not show up in the Fuels ABT Holdings grid until
the transaction is submitted from the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin, and credits associated with a buy
transaction do not show up in the Fuels ABT Holdings grid until the transaction is submitted from
the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin and accepted by the trading partner.

To complete a transaction, you must submit it from the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin by clicking the
Submit button at the bottom of the screen.  If you have multiple transactions in the Fuels ABT
Transaction Bin, you must submit all of the transactions with the same Credit Year atonce. Ifyou do
not wish to submit one of the transactions in the bin, you can remove that transaction and submit the
remaining transactions. You may not submit transactions across multiple Credit Years as part of a
single transaction bin submission. Ifyou have multiple transactions using RINs from different Credit
Years, you need to select a  Credit Year from the dropdown in the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin before
submitting your transactions from your Fuels  ABT Transaction Bin (see Figure 17).  For example, if
you have a Credit Sell transaction for 2014 Sulfur credits and a Credit Retire transaction for  2015
Sulfur credits in your Fuels ABT Transaction Bin, you must submit the transactions from  2014 and
2015 separately.

The Retire (Obligation) process has similar first steps. If your organization is either a refiner or a non-
renewable  fuel importer, you will be provided  with  the option "Retire (Obligation)".  If your
organization is both a refiner and a non-renewable fuel importer, you have the Retire (Obligation)
options "as Refiner" and "as Importer" available. For a row of credits in your Credit Holdings, select
the "as Refiner" option in the "I want to..." drop-down on the Manage Credit Holdings screen (or if
you are only registered as a refiner, select the "Retire (Obligation)" option). Doing so will take you to
the first step of the Retire (Obligation) Wizard for a refiner (see Figure 21).

When you have selected your Trading Partner, click the Transaction Details button to move on to the
next screen.  On the Sell Credits - Transaction Details and Documents screen, you must enter the
Transfer Date and Sell Reason.

You may also enter a Matching Transaction Identifier.  This element allows users to accept specific
buy/sell transactions in the case of several similar transactions. It is the unique transaction identifier
assigned by EMTS to an initiated trade.   When accepting a trade, users can include this element in
the trade matching criteria (along with the other trade matching criteria currently in effect).  If this
element is reported, EMTS will attempt to locate a matching transaction based on the  Matched
Transaction Identifier and the other matching criteria provided. If a match is not found, then the
transaction will fail.  If this element is not reported, then it will not be used in the trade matching (but
all other required matching elements will still apply).

You can also provide a Product Transfer Document (PTD) number and other additional information.
The Transaction Details and Documents screen contains a document grid you can use to specify the
name and identifier of one or more documents that support the  sell transaction.  Note that the
document itself cannot be uploaded. To add document information to the grid, fill in the Document
Type and Document Identification fields, and click Add. When you have completed this screen, click
Advanced Credit Selection to move to the final screen of the Sell Wizard.

On the Advanced Credit Selection screen, you have the option of specifying the credits that you wish
to sell (by originating source information).  If you  do not wish to  specify originating source
information, click Add to Transaction Bin at the bottom of the screen to continue. Alternatively, you
may use this screen to identify a specific originating organization, or organization and facility.  Once
you have specified the originating source information, click Add to Transaction Bin to continue.  After
you submit the sell transaction from the  Fuels ABT Transaction Bin, if it has not been matched, the
transaction will be in a pending state, and the credits associated with the sale will be in the Pending
column of the Fuels ABT Holdings grid (see Figure 25). The credits will remain in the Pending column
until the trading partner accepts or denies the sell transaction.

will take you to the Deny Credit Trade screen (see Figure 31), and clicking Accept Trade will take you
to the Accept Credit Trade screen (see Figure 32).

As described earlier in this section, a trade can be completed if one trading partner initiates a trade
through a Buy/Sell Wizard, and the other partner then accepts the initiated trade from the Review
Credit Trades screen.  Trades can also be completed in the following ways:

    •   Both trading partners submit XML files for a trade (one buy and one sell);

    •   One trading partner completes a buy/sell transaction on the web application, and the other
       trading partner submits a matching XML file for the corresponding transaction; or

    •   One trading partner completes a buy transaction on the web application, and the other
       trading partner completes a matching sell transaction on the web application.

In all of these instances, the following fields must match for the trades to match:

       1. Transfer Date;
       2. Credit Year;
       3. Credit Type;
       4. Times Traded;
       5. Quantity; and
       6. Reason Code (except for  Deny).

In addition, the Trading Partner Organization Identifiers must agree (e.g., the sell transaction
should list the buying organization  as the Trading Partner, and the buy transaction should list the
selling organization as the Trading  Partner). Several fields, if provided, must also match, including
the originating source information - Generating Organization Identifier and Generating Facility
Identifier - and the Matching Transaction ID.

If these fields do not match, then the trades submitted by both  trading partners via XML or web
application will be considered pending initiated trades.
