The LCFS requires that regulated fuel producers report the carbon generated in the production of transportation fuels sold in California. The inaccurate information spanned 24 quarterly reports.
The LCFS, which encourages the use of cleaner, low-carbon fuels,
is one of several programs developed under The Global Warming Solutions Act (A.B.32). It works with other A.B.32 programs, such as cap-and-trade, the zero-emission vehicle program and the renewable portfolio standard, to achieve California's GHG-reduction goals.

Marathon's smallest refinery is a 93,000 bpd facility in Canton, Ohio. As previously reported, "hardship waivers" were intended for refineries producing 75,000 bpd or less and suffered "disproportionate economic hardship" from the costs of RFS compliance. The waiver frees the refineries from an obligation to provide the EPA with biofuels credits proving compliance.
