IMPORTANT REMIND EH:
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..." drop-down 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}. The
credits in the Locked column are credits that have been locked to prevent their inclusion in trades.
Fuels ABT Credits can be locked and unlocked using screens accessed from the "I want to..." column
in the Fuels ABT Holdings grid (see the "Locking and Unlocking Fuels ABT Credits" 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.

Uploading Pre-2015 Unused Fuels ABT Credits
In 2014 and 2015, the EPA Moderated Transaction System (EMTS) was modified to include Fuels
Averaging, Banking, and Trading (ABT) program credits. As part of this transition, all pre-2015
Unused Fuels ABT Credits must be uploaded into EMTS by using the Unused Credits Submission
Template (see Figure 2), which is an Excel file that can be found on the EMTS Documents page.

The Template consists of five required columns:
•	Organization Identifier;
•	Credit Type;
•	Credit Year;
•	Quantity; and
•	Times Traded.
Hovering your mouse over each column header reveals a comment describing what each field
should include (see Figure 3 for an example).

•	Organization Identifier refers to the four-digit EPA Company ID of the organization that
owns the credits.
•	CreditType is the CreditType Code of the unused credits. Sulfur has a code of 10 and

•	Credit Year is the year in which the gasoline was produced. Credits with any credit year
prior to 2015 can be entered in the Unused Credits Submission file.
•	Quantity is the quantity of unused credits and must be an integer.
•	Times Traded refers to the number of times in which the referenced set of credits has been
traded. Valid values are "0", "1", or "2" since a credit can only be traded up to two times.
An example submission is shown in Figure 4 below.

There are no restrictions to the number of rows you can enter in the Unused Credits template, as
long as each row is a valid entry and complies with the instructions for each field.
After you have completed the Pre-2015 Unused Fuels ABT Credits Template, you will upload it on
the Submit Pre-2015 Unused Fuels ABT Credits page (see Figure 5). This page is accessed by
hovering over the Fuels ABT Credits menu and then clicking the Pre-2015 Unused Credits menu
item. The Pre-2015 Unused Fuels ABT Credits page is organization-specific, which means that after
logging in you must select the same organization for which you are uploading unused credits. You
can determine the organization in the top right corner of the screen and in the Organization
accordion on the right. To switch organizations, you would click the "Select a Different
Organization" link.

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 8).

The following information is required to generate credits as a refiner:
•	Year for which the credits are being generated;
•	Organization generating the credits;
•	Generating facility;
•	Credit type (Sulfur or Benzene); and
•	Reason for generating the credits.
The Generating Organization will be pre-populated and read-only. If you select Generate from the "I
want to..." column of an existing holding, then the Credit Year will also be pre-populated and read-
only; otherwise, it will appear as a text field (as in Figure 2). If your organization only has one
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

http://www2.epa.gov/fuels-registration-reporting-and-compliance-help/template-converting-ms-
excel-files-xml-epa.
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

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

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
T ransaction Bin, you must submit all of the transactions with the same Credit Year at once. If you 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. If you have multiple transactions using RINs from different Credit
Years, you need to select a Credit Year from the drop-down in the Fuels ABT Transaction Bin before
submitting your transactions from your Fuels ABT Transaction Bin (see Figure 23). 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.

therefore may retire credits for obligation, along with retiring credits for other reasons (see Figure

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). Note also the presence
in Figure 25 of two grayed-out options, "Remedial Retire for Compliance (Refiner)" and "Remedial
Retire for Compliance (Importer)". These options become available whenever EPA has authorized a
remedial retire for compliance for your company. If you are submitting a remedial retire to meet an
obligation as a refiner, select "Remedial Retire for Compliance (Refiner)". Once the appropriate
selection has been made, you will be taken to the first step of the Retire (Obligation) Wizard for a
refiner (see Figure 27).

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.
