excursions in exhaust gas temperatures as thermal conditions of after-treatment and exhaust 
stream are increased in order to initiate soot oxidation on the DPF substrate. Exhaust gas 
temperatures were observed to increase from typical levels throughout the route of ~320°C to 
~560°C during the DPF regeneration events. It has to be noted that temperatures depicted in 
Figure 4.51 and Figure 4.52 were measured at post SCR location by an on-board temperature 
sensor, acquired via ECU CAN interrogation.

Results 


Even though four distinct exhaust gas temperature excursions can be noticed from Figure 
4.51, thus indicating four DPF regeneration events throughout the entire route, only three 
particulate number concentration spikes are observed. This is due to the fact that the real-time 
particle sensor was not operational after ~2600km as the electrical air compressor providing 
pressurized air to the sensor had failed. However, even though lacking actual particle 
measurements, but solely based on the preceding data it can be concluded with the necessary 
confidence that the temperature excursion around 3023km is indicative of a DPF regeneration 
event. 

It is interesting to notice from Figure 4.51 that DPF regeneration events are nearly equally 
spaced both on a spatial (i.e. distance traveled) and temporal (i.e. duration between event) basis 
as can be seen from Table 4.10. On average the vehicle traveled approximately 756km ±29km 
(±la) between individual regeneration events which was observed to correspond to ~7.07hours 
±0.06hours (±la, not including third event) on a temporal basis. Even though the distance 
traveled between events 2 and 3 is of similar length than for other events, the time required was 
observed to be -17% longer (7.07hours vs. 8.3hours). A possible explanation for this difference 
is that the route between regeneration events 2 and 3 included low vehicle speed urban/suburban 
driving in and around Seattle, WA, leading to increased travel time to accumulate ~756km. 
Overall, these results ultimately lead to conclude that DPF regeneration intervals are 
predominantly distance based which agrees with descriptions given for after-treatment control 
strategies for Vehicle A in [31] (see from Figure 12 in [31]) which are most likely similar to 
Vehicle B as well as the same engine and DPF configurations are used in both vehicles. 
Furthermore, the observed average duration of a DPF regeneration event was 15min ±6min 
(±la) as seen from Table 4.10, thereby in agreement with system descriptions provided in [31].

Conclusions 


5 CONCLUSIONS 

Three light-duty diesel vehicles of European make, equipped with two different NOx 
abatement technologies, namely lean-NOx trap and urea-based selective catalytic reduction 
system, and certified to US-EPA Tier2-Bin5 and CARB LEV-II ULEV (CA) emissions 
standards were operated over a variety of pre-defined test routes exhibiting diverse driving 
conditions pertinent to major US population centers located in the state of California. 
Additionally, one vehicle, specifically Vehicle B, was driven over an extended distance of nearly 
4000km predominantly composed of highway driving conditions between California and 
Washington State. Gaseous emissions of NOx, CO, THC and CO 2 were measured using the OBS- 
2200 PEMS from Horiba Ltd., while particulate number and mass concentrations were inferred 
from real-time particle charge measurements employing a Pegasor particle sensor. 

In summary, real-world NOx emissions were found to exceed the US-EPA Tier2-Bin5 
standard (at full useful life) by a factor of 15 to 35 for the LNT equipped Vehicle A, by a factor 
of 5 to 20 for the urea-SCR fitted Vehicle B (same engine as Vehicle A) and at or below the 
standard for Vehicle C with exception of rural-up/downhill driving conditions, over five pre¬ 
defined test routes. Generally, NOx emissions were observed to be highest for rural-up/downhill 
and lowest for high-speed highway driving conditions with relatively flat terrain. Interestingly, 
NOx emissions factors for Vehicles A and B were below the US-EPA Tier2-Bin5 standard for the 
weighted average over the FTP-75 cycle during chassis dynamometer testing at CARB’s El 
Monte facility, with 0.022g/km ±0.006g/km (±la, 2 repeats) and 0.016g/km ±0.002g/km (±la, 3 
repeats), respectively. Additionally, increased variability between consecutive test runs was 
observed for Vehicle A coinciding with DPF regeneration events, leading to an increase in NOx 
emissions by 97% (0.41 g/km to 0.81g/km), 19% (1.38g/km to 1.63g/km), and 38% (1.24g/km to 
1.72g/km) for Routes 1, 3, and 4, respectively, between test runs with and without DPF 
regeneration events. This was speculated to be due to an extended duration of lean exhaust 
conditions and a lack of frequent enrichment of the exhaust gas (k < 1) while DPF regeneration 
was ongoing, leading to an inhibition of necessary LNT regeneration (DeNOx), and thus, causing 
the NOx storage catalyst to become saturated with NOx emissions that ultimately started to break 
through. The probability of this explanation is additionally supported by a detailed description of 
the after-treatment control strategy for Vehicle A presented elsewhere [31].

Conclusions 


NOx emissions of Vehicle B over the cross-multi state driving route, comprising 
predominantly highway driving, were observed to be on average 0.26g/km ±0.21g/km (±la) or 
approximately 6 times exceeding the US-EPA Tier2-Bin5 standard. However, most interestingly 
NOx emissions were found to be below the regulatory standard for portions of the route 
characterized by low or negligible changes in altitude (i.e. near zero road grade), and with the 
vehicle operated in cruise-control mode at approximately 120km/h while traveling northbound 
on Interstate 5 through the San Joaquin Valley (see route portions 3 through 6 in Figure 4.15). 

In general, CO and THC emissions were observed to be well below the regulatory level for 
all three test vehicles and driving conditions, with exception of Routes 1 and 2 for Vehicle A 
where THC emissions were seen to exceed the regulatory level by a small margin (< factor 1.25). 
Highest THC emissions for Vehicle A coincided with lowest NOx emissions however, no 
conclusive explanation can be presented herein for why this behavior was observed. 

As expected, highway driving showed lowest CO 2 , whereas urban/suburban driving 
conditions lead to highest CO 2 emissions factors for all vehicles. Since both Vehicles A and B 
were equipped with the same engine and similar test weights (i.e. 1855kg vs. 1884kg), 
comparable CO 2 consumption patterns were observed in agreement with results obtained during 
chassis dynamometer testing over the NEDC for urban/suburban and highway driving portions. 
It has to be noted that the equivalent vehicle test weight during chassis dynamometer testing was 
1701kg for both Vehicles A and B, or ~8% lower compared to vehicle weights during on-road 
PEMS testing. Finally, CO 2 emissions factors for Vehicle C were observed to exceed the 
EPA/NHTSA CO 2 /CAFE standard for the applicable LDT4 vehicle category with an actual 
vehicle test weight of 2903kg. The equivalent test weight for CO 2 emissions evaluation as per 
EPA procedure is 2495kg, or -14% lower compared to the actual vehicle weight during on-road 
PEMS testing. Average fuel economy for highway driving with Vehicles A and B was 45.3 mpg 
±8.6mpg (±al) and 43.7mpg ±5.7mpg (±al), respectively, and 27.3 mpg (no repetition) for 
Vehicle C which is -39% lower compared to Vehicles A and B. On the other hand, 
urban/suburban driving results in average fuel economies of 30.0mpg ±2.9mpg (±al) and 26.6 
mpg ±1.4mpg (±al) for Vehicles A and B, respectively, and 18.5mpg ±4.0mpg (±al) for Vehicle 
C which is 35% lower compared to Vehicles A and B. Overall, urban/suburban driving leads to a 
32-39% reduction in fuel economy over highway driving.

Conclusions 


Particulate matter mass emissions, inferred from PPS measurements, were observed below 
the US-EPA Tier2-Bin5 standard for Vehicles A and B. On the other hand, particulate number 
emissions were found to exceed the Euro 5b/b+ PN standard during DPF regeneration events 
increasing by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude over emissions levels measured during none- 
regeneration events. It is noted that PN is not regulated in the United States. During the multi¬ 
state driving route, DPF regeneration frequency for Vehicle B was established to be 
predominantly based on distance traveled, occurring after every 756km ±29km (±la), 
corresponding to ~7.07hours ±0.06hours for highway driving conditions. 

It is noted that only three vehicles were tested as part of this measurement campaign with 
each vehicle being a different after-treatment technology or vehicle manufacturer; conclusions 
drawn from the data presented herein are confined to these three vehicles. The limited data set 
does not necessarily permit drawing more generalized conclusions for a specific vehicle category 
or after-treatment technology.

7.1 Exhaust Emissions Calculations with Horiba OBS-2200 

7.1.1 Time alignment of real-time emissions concentrations 

The individual emissions concentrations are shifted to account for transport delays from the 
sampling plane (reference point) to the analyzer cells through the heated transfer line, heated 
filter and internal plumbing of the OBS. This is done in order to time-align the concentration 
values with the respective exhaust flow rates for calculation of time-specific mass emissions 
rates. Exhaust concentration alignment is automatically performed by the OBS software, hence; 
the emissions concentrations reported in the data sets (csv-files) are already time-aligned. 
Transport delay times (T 50 ) are calculated from spike-recovery tests during the calibration and 
initial setup of the OBS instrument. The csv-files report the delay times in column ‘E"’ in the file 
header. 

7.1.2 Drift correction of real-time emissions concentrations 

Drift corrections of the emissions concentrations are performed in order to account for 
possible analyzer drift over the measurement period. Prior to data collection over a test route, 
‘’pre-zero" and "pre-span" adjustments are performed for each analyzer. Upon completion of a 
test route, "post-zero" and "post-span" values are automatically collected by the OBS software for 
each analyzer. If the duration of a test route exceeds one hour (i.e. 3600 seconds), the OBS will 
automatically interrupt data collection for a period of 30 seconds to perform a "post-zero" and 
"post-span" check as well as make zero/span adjustments for each analyzer before continuing 
with data collection. Zero-drift and span-drift values are reported in columns "F and "f, 
respectively of the csv-file. Using these values, the OBS software automatically performs a drift 
correction of the real-time emissions concentration values upon completion of data collection 
(e.g. end of test route) using Equation (1). 

7.1.3 Averaging Window Method (AWM) 

In this method emission rates are integrated along with one of the listed criteria from time t 
= 0.0 sec until the chosen criteria has reached a target value. The target values are normally 
derived from standardized test cycles used in certifying engine families in test cell. The time

Appendix 


interval between tstan = 0.0 sec to te„d = x.x sec where the integrated value of the chosen criteria is 
equal to its target is called a window, and for a moving window method the process is repeated 
with a new starting time being tstan = 0.0 + I.O sec until a new window is achieved. Emissions 
rates of regulated pollutants are integrated for the above criteria windows, and have to meet the 
set in-use emissions standards. The criteria windows are valid only if the average engine power 
for each window is greater than or equal to 20% of maximum engine power. Similarly for an in- 
use test to be valid there should be at least 50% of criteria windows should be valid. If there are 
no 50% valid criteria windows in an in-use test then the window validity condition is reduced as 
low as 15% of maximum engine power in increments of 1% of average power. 


7.2 Particle Number Measurement with European PMP Method 

Streamlined with the introduction of PN limits (i.e. Euro 5b/b+ [4]), the European Union 
adopted a new methodology aimed at standardizing the measurement of total particle number 
concentrations by only counting solid particles having a diameter between 23nm and 2.5pm and 
that are thermally treated in order to reduce the volatile fraction, thus reducing measurement 
artifacts and variability [27]. This method has been previously developed under the Particle 
Measurement Program (PMP) of the United Nation’s Economic Commissions for Europe - 
Group of Experts on Pollution and Energy (UN-ECE-GRPE) [34, 35, and 36] leading to the 
following operational definition of particle numbers: ^measurement of solid particles having a 
diameter between 23nm and 2.5pm and are of sufficiently low volatility to survive a residence 
time of 0.2sec at 300°C’ [37]. 

The sampling system comprises a volatile particle remover (VPR) and an ultrafme particle 
counter optimized for a 50% counting efficiency for 23nm size particles. The VPR is designed to 
remove the volatile and semi-volatile fractions in the exhaust sample, thereby aiming at 
suppressing particle nucleation and the formation of artifacts in the sample stream. A first stage 
hot dilution (at 150 to 400°C and dilution ratio of 10) is used to reduce particle concentration in 
the sample before being directed into the evaporation tube (operated at 300 to 400°C) where the 
volatile and semi-volatile components are being transferred to a gaseous state. It follows a 
second cold dilution stage (dilution ratio between 10 to 15) to i) rapidly lowering the partial 
pressures of the gaseous components aimed at preventing their re-condensation, and ii) lowering

the sample temperature to below 35°C prior to entering the particle counting device. The Pegasor 
particle sensor for example has the advantage of not having a very limited range requirement for 
sample inlet temperatures (up to ~800°C), thus allowing for direct measurement of raw exhaust 
gases and thereby ultimately reducing the magnitude of size dependent particle losses as 
occurring in the VPR. 

However, the PMP approach for particle number measurements has come under scrutiny as 
recent studies have on one hand observed significant semi-volatile particles downstream the 
VPR [38, 39], and on the other hand measured increased concentrations of particles below the 
size of 23nm being emitted from DPF equipped vehicles. These ultrafme particles are believed to 
comprise sulfuric acid and assumed to be emitted from catalytic oxidation of sulfur from 
lubrication oil [40, 41, and 42]. Johnson et al. [37] evaluated the European PMP methodology 
during on-road vehicle testing and observed a significant portion of particles in the size range 
below 20nm even though the sample stream was thermally treated according to PMP 
requirements, thus questioning the applicability of the 23nm lower cut-point for particle 
measurements, as mandated by the European PMP regulation.

I’m sorry but there is nothing I can do in this case since your vehicle has exceeded the

Hello Mr. Ball, 

thank you for replying to my message concerning my vehicle. Sorry for the 
late response to your email. 

Technically, the vehicle in question is my wife's. It's under her name and 
everything. She bought it used from a dealer back in 2004, and is the 2nd 
owner of the vehicle. 


Its a 2002 VW Jetta 4 cylinder, 2.0 Liter engine, non-turbo, automatic. 


Ex. 6 


The VIN # is: 

68,000 miles this past week! 


The mileage on the car just hit 


After further investigation, and speaking with a customer service 
representative at VW USA Corporate, I found out that this issue I contacted 
you concerns the catalytic converter and was not repaired/replaced prior to 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012379 













my wife purchasing the car. 


VW is saying that the catalytic converter issue was never considered as a 
"recall", but rather an"emissions-related voluntary service campaign" 
(Manufacturer's Recall #VWA-07-20; ERA# 2586; TYPE: l-VSC) in which 
they extended the warranty on the vehicles affected to a "10 year/ 100,000 
mile" warranty. I know that the 10 years has past 2 years ago, but like I 
stated earlier, the car only has 68,000 miles now. This is due to my wife 
being permanently disabled, in which both state and federal governments 
recognize her as such. She was bedridden and/or unable to drive due to 
multiple back and spinal surgeries throughout the years. 

The dealership that sold my wife the car never turned in the change of 
ownership information to VW Corporate because when I spoke to the 
representative there, I provided him with her information so that he could 
update the database. 

This means that she never received any letters regarding the extended 
warranties/ voluntary service campaign! Through no fault of her own! 

The only reason I found out about all this is because the check engine light 
turned on about a month or so ago and had to deal with that in order for the 
car to pass the smog check as part of this year's car registration. 

If this had happened 2 years ago, then I would not be dealing with this 
issue because VW would have had to honor the extended warranty. 

I feel that it is unfair for us to have to pay out of our pocket for something 
VW knew was faulty in their vehicles. The check engine light had to turn 
on AFTER the year limit of the extended warranty expired(since the car 
would still be covered if they only considered the mileage limit of the 
warranty). 

I am asking you for help because both, the dealership and corporate are 
washing their hands of the issue, when we were never notified of the 
service campaign through letters sent out to the owners of the cars affected 
since they never changed the ownership info when my wife purchased the 
car. The mileage is way under the limit, but because we are dealing with 
this 2 years after the extended warranty year limit expired and since it was 
never considered an official recall, they do not have to honor it anymore. 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012380 



The estimated cost of replacing the catalytic converter is between $1,800- 
$2,200 that we don't have. My wife is disabled and lives on SSDI, and I 
have been unemployed for some time now desperately seeking 
employment. Her registration is due this month, in which, the car will not 
be legally driveable after May. It is the only vehicle between my wife, our 
daughter, and myself, who all use it for various reasons. 

Even the representative at VW Corporate felt bad and tried to plead with 
his supervisors for us after letting him know our situation, but unfortunately 
could not do anything for us. 

He even let me know that there is a recall on our car that is older than the 
service campaign in question. Apparently, there is a recall on the brake 
light switch in which they WILL honor if we take the car in to get repaired. 
He said they will honor it because its a safety issue not an emissions 
problem. He also stated that VW will honor that because it cost hundreds 
of dollars less than a catalytic converter would cost. He told me this off the 
record. 

Please see if there is anything that can be done! I have tried all other 
avenues that I am aware of and am up against the wall, not knowing what 
else to doll! 


I thank you for your time and patience with this long email.

If your vehicle is subject to a recall you should contact a dealership authorized by the 
manufacturer to service your vehicle. If you purchased the vehicle used, the recall may have 
been performed by the previous owner. You can ask the dealer if the recall has already been 
performed on your vehicle. If you are the original owner and you know the recall has not been 


VW FOIA, EPA

performed, you can request that it be performed now. If the dealer does not help you , you can 
contact the manufacturer’s customer service representative. If the manufacturer refuses to 
perform the recall, you can contact me with the recall information, make, model, and VIN 
number of your vehicle and I will look into it for you.

After reading all the guidelines and regulations concerning car manufacturer 
recalls and emissions warranties coverage^ I did not find an answer to my 
particular issue. I have a car that was part of a manufacturer’s recall. I 
was never notified about the recall and so the car was never fixed for that 
issue. The check engine light now turns on^ and I am realizing that the car 
has past the age restraint of the warranty coverage^ but would qualify under 
the mileage restraint of the warranty coverage. I don’t believe it’s fair 
that my car would not qualify for warranty coverage because the issue did not 
manifest itself until AFTER the age restraint expired AND was never notified 
about the recall. Can something be done to allow me to fix my car without 
incurring out-of-pocket costs to repair it?

RE: Emission Warranty 

Hello, 



Thank you for your inquiry regarding the federally required emissions warranty. The Clean Air 
Act requires manufacturers of light duty vehicles to warranty all emissions related components for 2 years 
or 24,000 miles and only the specified major emission control components for 8 years or 80,000 miles. 
The specified major emission control components only include the catalytic converters, the electronic 
emissions control unit or computer (ECU), and the onboard emissions diagnostic (OBD) device or 
computer. The evaporative emissions components would be subject to the 2 years or 24,000 mile 
warranty. 


The following web page provides more information regarding the federal emissions warranty 
requirements: www.epa.gov/obd/pubs/420f09048.pdf 


I hope this information is helpful.

Occasionally a vehicle can be left unlocked with the keys inside resulting in a prolonged drain

Thank you for the information regarding the key location impacting the battery state of 
charge. We will keep the key in the scheduling office and not in or on the vehicle to ensure the 
battery state of charge is not drained. We are able to charge the battery prior to the 
preconditioning, however, a battery charger will not be put on the vehicle on the night before the

In addition to the FTP being outside the 3% window, according to our records, the 

vehicle was also outside the 3% window for the US06 test. I am wondering if you would also 

want the US06 re-tested? 


Once we know your preference regarding retesting the TfS06 we will put in the request

Hi Dave, 


We look at the update although, the update below requires us to enter CH4 standard but we 
understand that there would be no CH4 standard if we selected OPT-CREE. 

Therefore if we select OPT-CREE, we do not need to enter CH4 standard into Verify and the 
standard will leave blank, correct ? 

Also, will the Verify system accept data submission or accept without considering a failure even 
CH4 standard leaves blank, correct ? 


If leaving blank has any trouble for the data submission please advise us how we should enter 
CH4 standard when selecting OPT-CREE. 


We would like to confirm beforehand if our m ethod where CH4 standard leaves blank would not 

cause any issue when submitting data into Verify. 


Also, If we should ask this questions to Verify team , please let me know and then I will ask 

them.

Please note that in Verify Release 13.1 (deployed Jan 24, 2014) that EPA has added two new 
Test Result/Emission Names which can be used in Verify’s lElVP Module only. The new test 
result/emission names are “Combined CREE” and “Combined OPT-CREE.” 


Please begin using these lUVP emission names as soon as possible (and don’t use the work¬ 
around method of entering lUVP combined CREE/OCREE data). [Thanks much for using the 
“work-around” method of entering combined CREE lUVP data over the past few months.] If 
you used the “work-around method” of entering CREE/OCREE data, it is not necessary to 
correct previously entered lUVP data using the new test result/emission names. 


Please enter the appropriate Combined CREE or Combined OPT-CREE test results along with 
the appropriate Combined CREE or Combined OPT-CREE in-use standard, pass/fail results, etc. 
for the highway test only . As a reminder, individual in-use GHG standards for specific in-use 
vehicles are required to be included in the manufacturer’s final CAFE/GHG model year report, 
ref 40 CFR 86.1818-12(d); and 40 CFR 600.512-12(c)(l 1). 


As of the first week in January. 2014. some manufacturers have not been entering 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012402 



CREE/OCREE data and/or CH4 data into Verify for 2012 lUVP tests. In addition, some 
manufacturers seem to be missing 2012 low mileage lUVP data for some of their 2012 test 
groups. Please double check on the status of your 2012 lUVP program and let Bill Pidgeon 
( pidgeon.bill@epa.gov ) and I know if your program is nmning late. I will try to send 
manufacturers with missing data a follow-up email message in the next few days. 


Tips for entering lUVP data: 


1. Please enter Combined CREE or Combined OPT-CREE test results (weighted 55% city and 
45% highway) for the highway test procedure only. 

2. Please do not enter both Combined CREE and Combined OPT-CREE values. Enter either 
CREE or OPT-CREE values which are consistent with the way you submitted data in your 
CAFE/GHG model year report for the applicable model year. 

3. Please enter CH4 test results, standards, pass/fail results on the FTP test only. 

4. Please enter N20 test results, standards, pass/fail results on the FTP test only if you actually 
measured N20 —e.g. don’t enter the default 0.010 N20 values. 


Reminders: 

1. 2012 lUVP low mileage testing was required to be completed by Dec 31,2013 and data 
submitted to EPA’s Verify database prior to Jan 31, 2014, ref. 40 CFR 86.1845-04(b)(4) and 
86.1847(b). EPA has extended the window in Verify to Feb 28. 2014 for reporting and 
correcting 2012 model year low mileage lUVP test data. Please contact Bill Pidgeon by email or 
at 734-214-4416 if you need to submit data to Verify after that date. 

2. When entering lUVP data in Verify, please check your Verify mailbox to make sure that the 
data was accepted by Verify. 


Thanks much. 


Please call contact me at 734-214-4450 or by email if you have any questions.

Subject: Capital Energy, presented by Indian Point Energy Center—Safe, Secure, Vital: Making Bakken 
safer, Cahill for fracking, elegy for an energy bill 

By Scott Waidman and David Giambusso 

Welcome to Capital Energy, your daily guide to news on the manufacture, consumption and 
regulation of energy in New York. Sisn up here. 

REFINED RAIL: The scramble to make North Dakota's Bakken crude oil safer when it's being 
transported on trains has focused on better tracks, slower speeds, and reinforced railcars that 
bypass urban areas, Reuters’ Kristin Hays reports. A new approach, which is used elsewhere, 
would remove the most volatile elements from the crude before it is being loaded on to rail cars, 
http:// goo. sl/1 w J taE 

--There was a minor derailment of an oil train in Albany on Monday. Nothing was spilled, but 
Canadian Pacific was fined for waiting about five hours to report the accident. 
http://goo.gl/3pu4At 

CAHILL FOR FRACKING: Count G.O.P. attorney general candidate John Cahill among 
those who want to open New York up to hydrofracking. He told the Syracuse Post-Standard that 
cheap natural gas could bring Syracuse back as the manufacturing center it once was.

“ Ethics complaint filed over Cahill energy company: The Daily News reports a Vestal 
woman has asked for an investigation into whether Cahill and his energy consulting firm 
illegally lobbied the state, http://goo.gl/imk9s 1 

MORE GAS TO NYC: The Transco pipeline is building out its capacity in New York City after 
a cold winter when demand almost overwhelmed the city’s gas infrastructure. Williams Partners, 
which owns the 1,800 mile pipeline from Texas to New York, announced that the Federal 
Energy Regulatory Commission approved permits to add 3.2 miles of new pipeline and more 
compression equipment. The project is slated to begin in June and be done by the end of the 
year. http://goo.gl/LNJYEK 

R.I.P. ENERGY EFFICIENCY BILL: A bipartisan bill to increase energy efficiency in 
buildings died on the Senate floor Monday, the victim of a political fight over President Obama’s 
climate change regulations and the Keystone XL pipeline. The New York Times’ Coral 
Davenport reports. The bill took more than a year to hammer out and had widespread support in 
both parties just a week ago. The Times reports it has been seven years since Congress has taken 
any significant action on energy. http://goo.gl/z8RGXw 

CAN WE BE MORE EFFICIENT? How much energy could the U.S. save if it really tried? 
Brad Plumer asks at Vox. Spoiler: we could double energy efficiency by 2030, since we’ve 
already done so since 1970. The major impediments are legislators. http://goo.gl/dh3SnN

RISING SPILLS: The number of spills reported at oil and gas production sites rose 18 percent 
last year, even though drilling activity declined, Energy Wire’s Mike Soraghan reports. There 
were at least 7,662 spills, blowouts, leaks and other mishaps in 2013 in 15 top states for onshore 
oil and gas activity. http://goo.gl/cSOXnl 

GAS PAYING FOR BRIDGES: The Marcellus shale will be bankrolling bridge repairs in Erie 
County this summer, the Erie Times-News reports. The funds for the infrastructure repair come 
from fees placed on oil and gas drillers, http://goo.gl/Mt4i A1 

** A message from the Indian Point Energy Center: An Open Letter from Four Climate 
Scientists. Four of the most respected scientists involved in global warming activism recently 
published an open letter encouraging fellow scientists and activists to embrace nuclear power as 
a means of reducing emissions and stabilizing our climate. Follow (gjindian Point ** 

POLITICS AND FRACKING MONEY: In Colorado, the fight over fracking and other energy 
measures will come to a head on the November ballot. The Denver Post’s Lynn Bartels reports. 
Millions of dollars are expected to be pour into the state before, from deep-pocketed 
environmentalists to the energy industry to celebrities like Yoko Ono. Tens of thousands of jobs, 
billions of dollars and the state’s environmental health hang in the balance, http://goo.gl/1 qkEI8 

NEW CON ED HEAD: John McAvoy, who has been president and CEO of Con Edison since 
the end of last year, was elected chairman of the board of directors, the utility announced today. 
McAvoy has also served as president and CEO of Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc., a 
subsidiary of Con Edison. He earned an MBA from New York University and a bachelor's 
degree in Mechanical Engineering from Manhattan College. He takes over for Kevin Burke who 
retired last year. htt p://goo.gl/gs4erG 

OIL SANDS OIL TO SPREAD: With the Keystone XL pipeline stalled amid partisan 
Washington bickering, Canadian oil companies are proposing many new and expanded pipelines 
that would connect the oil sands fields with new markets in China and across the world. The 
New York Times reports. Current plans call for the oil sands to increase production by 25 
percent over the next few years and Canadian producers are even starting to see the fighting over 
Keystone as a silver lining because they’ve been forced to look for new markets.

-- New sanctions drive up domestic crude, reports the Wall Street Journal. After the U.S. and 
European Union announced new sanctions on Russia, the price of domestic crude rose 24 cents, 
or 0.2%, to settle at $100.84 a barrel on the NYMEX. Brent crude was down $1.46, or 1.3%, to 
end at $108.12 a barrel in London, http://goo .gl/ 4BEXKX

off further shipments of gas to Ukraine unless the country starts pre-paying. In April, Gazprom 
raised the price of gas by 81 percent. http://goo.gl/iVnqIu 

CHINA VS. WORLD: The world basically has no chance to curb global warming if China 
doesn’t begin to limit its coal consumption by 2030, according to a new study by the U.K.’s 
Center for Climate Change Economics and Policy. 

“Whether China moves onto an innovative, sustainable and low-carbon growth path this decade 
will more or less determine both China’s longer-term economic prospects in a natural resource- 
constrained world, ... and the world’s prospects of cutting greenhouse gas emissions sufficiently 
to manage the grave risks of climate change.” http://goo.gl/wuqwbF 

“ China doesn’t have the worst air pollution, however. That distinction belongs to India, 
which has six of the world’s most polluted cities. Vox reports. The particulate matter in the air 
leads to lung cancer and is largely the result of burning gasoline, diesel and coal for 
transportation and energy, along with other large-scale manufacturing processes.

message from the Indian Point Energy Center: Global warming activists embrace 
nuclear power. Acknowledging the need to sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions to avoid 
climate catastrophe, four respected scientists wrote in their open letter that “continued opposition 
to nuclear power threatens humanity’s ability to avoid dangerous climate change.” The scientists 
are Ken Caldeira from the Carnegie Institution, Kerry Emanuel from MIT, James Hansen from 
the Columbia Earth Institute and Tom Wigley from the National Center for Atmospheric 
Research. Pointing to the substantial role renewables like wind and solar will play in our energy 
future, the scientists acknowledge that these sources “can’t scale up fast enough to deliver cheap 
and reliable power at the scale the global economy requires.” They conclude that “there is no 
credible path to climate stabilization that does not include a substantial role for nuclear power.”

You shouldn’t need to ask EPA this question. (Other mfrs don’t.) 


You should go to the Verify data elements on the web Light-Duty Vehicle Data Requirements^ 

Release 13.1 at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/verifv/publications.htm . Then look at the lUVP data 
tab (Pl-IT); then in row 39 [IT~31 or In-use Standard (Federal)]you will see that that field (In- 

use standard for each weighted test result entered) is not a required field (column G is “false”). 
Also note that there are no business rules specified in Column Y for that field. 


So that means that you should be able to enter any weighted result (IT-29) without entering the 

standard. 


VW FOIA, EPA

2017-FFP 012432 



If you don’t feel like researching it as above, you should go ahead and try entering Methane 
emissions without entering a standard and see if it is rejected by Verify. If it is, then you can 
enter the CH4 tesresults in the comment field—and still enter Opt-CREE and an Opt-CREE 
standard.

Hi Dave. 


We look at the update although, the update below requires us to enter CH4 standard but we 

understand that there would be no CH4 standard if we selected OPT-CREE. 

Therefore if we select OPT-CREE, we do not need to enter CH4 standard into Verify and the 
standard will leave blank, correct ? 

Also, will the Verify system accept data submission or accept without considering a failure even 
CH4 standard leaves blank, correct ? 


If leaving blank has any trouble for the data submission please advise us how we should enter 
CH4 standard when selecting OPT-CREE. 


We would like to confirm beforehand if our method where CH4 standard leaves blank would not

Subject: RE: lUVP - Entering Greenhouse Gas data (CREE or OCREE, CH4) into the EPA Verify 
database; Verify changes, etc. 


To all manufacturers lUVP contacts, 


Please note that in Verify Release 13.1 (deployed Jan 24, 2014) that EPA has added two new 
Test Result/Emission Names which can be used in Verify’s lUVP Module only. The new test 
result/emission names are “Combined CREE” and “Combined OPT-CREE.” 


Please begin using these lUVP emission names as soon as possible (and don’t use the work¬ 
around method of entering lUVP combined CREE/OCREE data). [Thanks much for using the 
“work-around” method of entering combined CREE lUVP data over the past few months.] If 
you used the “work-around method” of entering CREE/OCREE data, it is not necessary to 
correct previously entered lUVP data using the new test result/emission names. 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012435 



Please enter the appropriate Combined CREE or Combined OPT-CREE test results along with 
the appropriate Combined CREE or Combined OPT-CREE in-use standard, pass/fail results, etc. 
for the highway test only . As a reminder, individual in-use GHG standards for specific in-use 
vehicles are required to be included in the manufacturer’s final CAFE/GHG model year report, 
ref. 40 CFR 86.1818-12(d); and 40 CFR 600.512-12(c)(l 1). 


As of the first week in January, 2014. some manufacturers have not been entering 
CREE/OCREE data and/or CH4 data into Verify for 2012 lUVP tests. In addition, some 
manufacturers seem to be missing 2012 low mileage lUVP data for some of their 2012 test 
groups. Please double check on the status of your 2012 lUVP program and let Bill Pidgeon 
f pidgeon.bill@epa.gov) and I know if your program is amning late. I will try to send 
manufacturers with missing data a follow-up email message in the next few days. 


Tips for entering lUVP data: 


1. Please enter Combined CREE or Combined OPT-CREE test results (weighted 55% city and 
45% highway) for the highway test procedure only. 

2. Please do not enter both Combined CREE and Combined OPT-CREE values. Enter either 
CREE or OPT-CREE values which are consistent with the way you submitted data in your 
CAFE/GHG model year report for the applicable model year. 

3. Please enter CH4 test results, standards, pass/fail results on the FTP test only. 

4. Please enter N20 test results, standards, pass/fail results on the FTP test only if you actually 
measured N20 —e.g. don’t enter the default 0.010 N20 values. 


Reminders: 

1. 2012 lUVP low mileage testing was required to be completed by Dec 31,2013 and data 

submitted to EPA’s Verify database prior to Jan 31, 2014, ref. 40 CFR 86.1845-04(b)(4) and 
86.1847(b). EPA has extended the window in Verify to Feb 28. 2014 for reporting and 
correcting 2012 model year low mileage lUVP test data. Please contact Bill Pidgeon by email or 
at 734-214-4416 if you need to submit data to Verify after that date. 


VW FOIA, EPA

2. When entering lUVP data in Verify, please check your Verify mailbox to make sure that the 
data was accepted by Verify. 


Thanks much.

staff to discuss PHEV and BEV certification. There are still some questions we have regarding PHEV 
calculations and testing we would like to discuss with you. In advance of the meeting please see the 
attached presentation with our open points or questions. 

Is there a time that works best for you? My proposal is to have the meeting early next week if that is 
possible for EPA staff. I understand you may want to discuss our questions internally first. 

Thank you and best regards.

Hello Rob, 


Thanks you for the clarification. I’ve sent your answer over to my German colleagues and asked 
if this is now helps them understand the issue. In the meantime I am still hoping we can have a 
discussion sometime next week. 


Thanks again.

Ex. 7 


With regard to the first page of your questions/comments, I think you’ll find that the calculator 

does the things on both sides of the page. 

CAFE and GHG values, and the utilitized MPGe/GHG values for the label (not actually on the 
label, but used to determine MPG/GHG ratings), are done using the “stepwise” utility factor 
approach shown on the right side of the page. This is consistent with J1711. What is shown in 
the box on that page is a utilitized charge-depleting value, and thus not appropriate for label use 
to represent charge-depleting operation.

2017-FFP 012461 









J1711 doesn’t really inform us completely as to how to determine ONLY a charge-depleting 
value, which we need to do for the label. Hence the calculations shown on the left side of your 
page. 


When we discuss PHEV calculations we definitely need to be specific as to whether we are 
talking about label, CAFE, or GHG, since there are differences in methodology.

Richard, 


Attached are some EV templates for calculating FE Label values, entering CD data into Verify, 
etc. 


For CAFE calcs, I think Bob Peavyhouse uses the CD range and the recharge energy to 

determine the CAFE energy consumption—e.g. values from the city & hwy EV test data which 
manufacturers enter into Verify (my example data).

Subject: Decision Information Uploaded to Verify 


Hello David, 


Two confirmatory test decisions were uploaded to Verify for the MY2015 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0 
MPI (Automatic and Manual), Testgroup: FVGAV02.0VUC. The Vehicle ID’s are listed below. 


Automatic: VW361-0-0250 
Manual; VW361-0-0221 


There was also some information that I uploaded by mistake for Vehicle ID: VW361-0-221. You 
can disregard this test data and decision information as this is the wrong Vehicle ID. 
Unfortunately I was finishing up and filing the documents when I noticed the discrepancy. 


My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

I_ 


I am contacting you as I am not sure who the appropriate VW contact would he with 
respect to the application for test group FVGAV02.0VBD. I have taken a quick look at the 
common (December 5, 2013 document) and test group applications and have not been able to 
locate information describing either the durability test group or the evaporative emission 
families. Also the OBDII approval letter included with the application is from a 2014 OBD test 
group, there does not appear to be an official approval of the 2015 OBD test group included in 
the application. 


Lastly, two of the VECI label examples list the OBD as F II while the third OBD label 
includes the more detailed acronym Fed II. Not sure if this is of any significance, but, thought I 
would mention it since I noticed the difference. 


Let me know if you have any questions or comments. I look forward to hearing VWs 
response with respect to the issues raised.

The last confirmatory testing I find in the EPA data base for VW361-0-0250 took 
place in 2010 for the 2011 MY. The highway test results on that vehicle were a little over 41 
MPG which were run at and confirmed at EPA. It appears the tires have significantly reduced 
the rolling resistance and based on the fairly significant increase in highway fuel economy 
observed on the new testing compared to the previous testing I located, EPA is interested in 
performing a confirmatory test on this FEDV. 


Let me know if there are more recent data I have missed.

Hello David, 


As we diseussed, Volkswagen is planning to eomplete our manufaeturer testing of the new MY 
2015 e-Golf in the next few weeks. This vehicle, which will be introduced later this year, is 
the first BEV for the US market, and therefore it is especially important for us to meet our tight 
timing and performance targets. 


It is understood that this vehicle will be confirmatory tested at EPA. 


We are hereby requesting that EPA make an early scheduling allowance for the testing of 
this vehicle, for the week of July 7“', or the next earliest available time. 


Our goal is to insure that this window is available in the EPA schedule at the time we make the 
test data submission. AT the latest we expect our submissions to be completed by June 25, but 
plan on an earlier submission. 


Thank you in advance for your consideration. Please let us know if you are able to assist us 
with this request.

Eye on Safety: 

Passive Fire Shelters Enhance Safety for Offshore Gas 


Three passive fire shelters designed to protect the vital control electronics of automatic emergency 
shutdown and fire suppression systems on offshore gas production platforms in the Arabian Gulf are being 
supplied by the outdoor enclosure specialist Intertec. Fabricated using lightweight composite GRP (glass- 
reinforced polyester) materials, the shelters employ patented techniques to resist fire for two hours - 
allowing critical electronic safety equipment to remain operational. Although there are currently no 
standards covering containment temperatures for this application area, Intertec designs, manufactures, and 
tests its fire shelters to a rigorous proprietary specification, which demands that their internal temperature

AGV Streamlines Heavy Equipment Production Line 


A southeastern U.S.-based heavy equipment manufacturer had been delivering engines to its assembly line 
using forklifts. The company identified a need to expand its manufacturing facilities and that determination 
included analyzing its material handling systems. In order to increase efficiencies and reduce the use of 
forklifts, it was considering using AGVs for moving the seven different engine models from a supermarket 
storage area to its assembly line. The company needed to have the engines sequenced to the line based on 
production forecasts and most importantly, be automated, safe, reliable, and operate with minimal 
personnel involvement.

Hello Jim, 

This might circle back to you. I did not get a response back from Line and Dave, so we would still like to

from Rob French last week and my colleagues in Germany are revising the presentation accordingly. We 
will get back to you when you are back in the office next week, i will be traveling next week but I expect 
you may get contact from one of us.

2017-FFP 012514 


















As we discussed, Volkswagen is planning to complete our manufacturer testing of the new MY 
2015 e-Golf in the next few weeks. This vehicle, which will be introduced later this year, is 
the first BEV for the US market, and therefore it is especially important for us to meet our tight 
timing and performance targets. 


It is understood that this vehicle will be confirmatory tested at EPA. 


We are hereby requesting that EPA make an early scheduling allowance for the testing of 
this vehicle, for the week of July 7“*, or the next earliest available time. 


Our goal is to insure that this window is available in the EPA schedule at the time we make the 
test data submission. AT the latest we expect our submissions to be completed by June 25, but 
plan on an earlier submission. 


Thank you in advance for your consideration. Please let us know if you are able to assist us 
with this request.

Hello Jim, 


We received the rejected cert requests for testgroup FVGAJ03.0AUD, but the three e-mails we 
received were all for Evap Family; FVGAR0140AAD. There should have been three conditional 
requests uploaded for the EVAP families below that need to be rejected so we can make the 
revisions and re-submit. 


Testgroup: FVGAJ03.0AUD 

Evap Families: FVGAR0140AAD 

FVGAR0140AAC 

FVGAR0140NAF 


They came through on the verify reports with the correct Evap families, so Fm not sure why

API to Obama: Leawe ozone limits iinchanged 


By Edward Feiker 

The American Petroleum Institute o:n Tuesday urged the Obama adiiiini strati on to resist calls 
to lower standards for smog-forming ozone pollution. An o;fficial with the g:rotip said 
tightening the standards would put most of the U.S. out of compliance and hit the economy 
with billions of dollars in annual new costs. 

Howard Feldman, API's director of regiilato:ry affairs, told reporters that the Environmental 
Protection Agency should include the current 2008 staridard as an option for public comment 
under a court-ordered review this fall, despite calls from environmental groups for the 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012532 


























agency to lower allowabie ozone levels. 

EPA is still months away from the Dec. 1 deadline to propose an update to the 2008 standard 
of 75 parts per billion. That standard limits compliance problems largely to metropolitan 
areas. 

Feldman said a new analysis for API found that lowering the standard to as few as 60 parts 
per billion would put 94 percent of the U.S. population in areas that violate the limit, 
including vast swaths of raral America. 

"Further tightening the 2008 ozone standards, the most stringent ozone standards ever, is a 
major concein because of the potential cost and im,pact on the economy," he said. 


Having so much of the country out of compliance would require expensive mitigation that 
would curtail development and job growth, Feldman said. He noted that EPA, in its 2010 
proposal to set the standard at 60-70 parts per billion, estimated costs of $90 billion annually 
by 2020. 

"Our ask is that the administrator consider and include in the proposal, keeping the cuiTent 
standard," Feldman said. "If she wants to solicit...comments on loweiing the standard or 
raising the standard, those are also appropriate." 

An EPA spokeswoman, Liz Purchia, did not comment on API's calls, but said EPA intends to 
meet the Dec. 1 deadline and is still working toward a proposal. 

"EPA is obtaining advice from our science advisers during the ongoing review to ensure that 
the ozone standards protect public health and the environment as required by the law. The 
agency has not made decisions at this time on what to propose," she said. 

The 2010 proposal had represented a move by EPA to reconsider the 2008 standard set under 
President George W. Bush. 


The agency's administrator at the time, Lisa Jackson, foimd that the 2008 standard was not as 
protective of human health as the lower proposed standard, which was recommended by 
EPA's Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee. EPA also said the rule would generate $100 
billion annually in benefits to the economy from better health. 

The proposal proved controversial, however, for the same reasons API brought up on 
Tuesday — that it would require ozone reduction programs by states covering most of rural 
America and impose huge new costs on industry. 

The earlier revision effort ended in 2011 when President Barack Obama ordered the proposal 
withdrawn in fevor of EP A reviewing the rule in 201.3, under a fi.ve-year timetable set in the 
law. He cited the goal of regulatory certainty and the weak economic recoveiy, along with 
other pollution rules by EPA, in ordering the withdrawal. 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012533 









EPA's failure to undertake the review last year led to a lawsuit by environmental groups, and 
a mling last month by a federal judge that Administrator Gina McCarthy must issue a 
proposal by December. 

The agency's advisory committee is to make its own recommendations for the new review, 
and is to hold meetings on Wednesday and next week. 

API and 11 other industrial and business groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce 
and the American Chemistry Council, on May 19, wrote the committee to argue that there is 
no health evidence to support a lower standard and that it should consider the current 
standard in any range it considers. 

Feldman said other interests beyond the committee — indiistiy included — should have a 
chance to argue in favor of keeping the standard unchanged. 

"Right now we think thaf s the step we're asking for, is, take input across the board," Feldman 
said. "The science advisers are just one of the stakeholders that provide input to the 
administrator — they are not charged with setting the standard, that's not their role or 
responsibility." _ ___ __ _

NRC won't speed up move of spent fuel 


By Dave Gram 

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The LF.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is rejecting calls 
from watchdog groups and some U.S. senators to speed up moving spent nuclear fuel from 
the pools where most of it is stored, weighing in on a debate over whether transfers should be 
made for safety concerns and not just logistics. 

An NRC memo provided to The Associated Press on Tuesday shows the commission 
accepted its staffs recommendation to drop expedited transfer of the spent fuel from 
consideration. 

The NRC's decision comes after years of increasing clamor to move spent fuel from thinly 
sheltered spent fuel pools into concrete and steel casks. Many plants have begun the transfers 
because they are running out of room in their spent fuel pools without the long-promised 
national waste dump. 

The memo, issued Friday, says the NRC doesn't want to deal with the issue again. 

"The Commission has approved the staffs recommendation that this ... activity be closed and 
that no further generic assessments be pursued related to possible regulatory actions to 
require the expedited transfer of spent fuel to dry cask storage," said the memo from 
Rochelle Bavol, acting secretary of the commission to Mark Satorius, the commission's

Audit: Lack of cost control at SC nuke fuel plant 


By Meg Kinnard 

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Officials have been unable to control costs at a multibillion- 
dollar nuclear reactor fuel project at the Savannah River Site near Aiken, according to a new 
audit released this month. 

The inspector general of the U.S. Energy Department says in the report that the National 
Nuclear Security Administration and a private contractor have been "largely unsuccessful" in 
keeping tabs on the facility that would turn weapons-grade plutonium into commercial 
reactor fuel. 

The project, known as MOX, is part of a nonproliferation agreement between the United 
States and Russia, with each country agreeing to dispose of 34 tons of weapons-grade 
plutonium — an amount that officials have said is equal to 17,000 warheads. It would be the 
first of its kind in the United States. 

Criticism has swirled around the project, which has been slow to attract customers for the 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012536 



























































































commercial reactor fuel it will produce. MOX Services has said negotiations are underway 
with several utility companies interested in buying the fuel, but none have officially signed 
on. 

The project is more than three years behind its 2016 completion deadline and is also now 
expected to cost $3 billion more than planned, according to the General Accountability 
Office. The GAO has also said the project's price tag has ballooned to nearly $8 billion, 
citing design problems and issues with Energy Department oversight as reasons for the 
increase. 


Oil stays above $104 on crises in Ukraine, Libya 

By Pablo Gorondi, The Associated Press 

The price of oil remained above $104 a barrel Tuesday as investors weighed how the 
conflicts in Ukraine and Libya were likely to affect crude supplies. 

Benchmark crude for July delivery fell 24 cents to $104.11 a barrel on the New York 
Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, dropped 30 cents to 
$110.02 on the ICE Futures exchange in London. 

Ukraine is a key conduit for Russian gas deliveries to Europe. A proposed solution to a 
dispute over Ukrainian natural gas debts to Moscow raised hopes that a supply cutoff would 
be averted. Russia's acceptance of Petro Poroshenko's victory in Sunday's presidential 
elections was also regarded as a sign of easing tensions. 

But the resurgence of fighting, as the government in Kiev responded with an airstrike to the 
pro-Russia separatists' occupation of the airport in Donetsk, a city of about 1 million in 
eastern Ukraine, underscored the uncertainties that remain. 

Meanwhile, in Libya, which has been unable to stabilize since the ouster of Moammar 
Gadhafi in 2011, the National Oil Corporation said crude exports stood at 160,000 barrels a 
day, down from 1.4 million barrels a day a year ago. Several key export facilities are 
controlled by militias who do not recognize the central government. 


Court sides with EPA on not setting new acid rain 
standard 


By Pete Yost

2017-FFP 012537 





WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the Environmental 
Protection Agency was justified in not establishing a new air quality standard for acid rain. 

The EPA decided in 2012 after a lengthy nilemaking proceeding that it needed further 
scientific study before it could set a new air quality standard for oxides of nitrogen and 
oxides of sulfur. 

Environmental groups claimed that EPA's failure to issue a new multi-pollutant rule violated 
the Clean Air Act. 

In a 3-0 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said it was 
turning aside the environmental groups' petition for judicial review because the EPA could 
not form a reasoned judgment as the Clean Air Act requires. 

"EPA did not simply leave in place the old standard," said appeals judge A. William 
Randolph. "Although it did not promulgate a new standard, it identified the data gaps that 
prevented it from doing so and initiated a data-collection program designed precisely to fill 
those gaps and facilitate future regulation." 

Once EPA found that the two current standards were inadequate with respect to acid rain, the 
agency sought to determine what new multi-pollutant standard would be appropriate, the 
judges said. EPA recognized that a new national ambient air quality standard would 
necessarily be more complex than those set historically for just one pollutant, the court 
wrote.

Energy-target proposal clears Ohio House 
committee 


By Ann Banner 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A contentious bill delaying the phase-in of Ohio's renewable 
energy and efficiency standards cleared a key legislative panel Tuesday, as state lawmakers 
seek to finish the measure before leaving for summer break. 

The proposal addresses targets for how much energy Ohio utilities must generate from 
renewable sources, such as solar and wind, by 2025. The House Public Utilities Committee 
approved the bill 13-9, sending it to the full House. 

Opponents of the legislation — including advanced-energy companies, faith and civil-rights 
leaders and environmentalists — have lobbied hard against the bill's two-year pause in the 
standards negotiated by Gov. John Kasich and senators. They say such targets promote 
environmentally friendly alternatives to fossil fuels and create high-tech jobs in the growing 
alternative-energy sector. 

The bill's backers contend the targets drive up prices for average electric consumers who 
have been given little choice in the matter. 

The measure cleared the Senate earlier this month after a committee backed off efforts to 
effectively repeal the mandates through a permanent moratorium. 


After decades, dirty Pa. power plant to get clean 

By Dina Cappiello and Kevin Begos 

HOMER CITY, Pa. (AP) — Three years ago, the operators of one of the nation's dirtiest coal- 
fired power plants warned of "immediate and devastating" consequences from the Obama 
administration's push to clean up pollution from coal. 

Sponsored Links 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012539 































Faced with cutting sulfur dioxide pollution blowing into downwind states by 80 percent in 
less than a year, lawyers for EME Homer City Generation L.P. sued the Environmental 
Protection Agency to block the rule, saying it would cause it grave harm and bring a painful 
spike in electricity bills. 

None of those dire predictions came to pass. 

Instead, the massive western Pennsylvania power plant is expected in a few years to turn 
from one of the worst polluters in the country to a model for how coal-fired power plants can 
slash pollution. 

The story of the Homer City plant reflects the precarious position of older coal-fired plants 
these days, squeezed between cheap and plentiful natural gas and a string of environmental 
rules the Obama administration has targeted at coal, which supplies about half the nation's 
electricity. The latest regulation, the first proposal to curb earth-warming carbon dioxide 
from power plants, is due next week. It will pose yet another challenge to coal-fired power 
plants. Dozens of coal-fueled units have already announced they would close in the face of 
new rules. 

But Homer City also shows how political and economic rhetoric sometimes doesn't match 
reality. Despite claims by Republicans and industry critics that the Obama administration's 
regulations will shut down coal-fired power plants, Homer City survived — partly because it 
bought itself time by tying up the regulation in courts. Even environmental groups that 
applaud each coal plant closing and protested Homer City's pollution, now say the facility is 
setting a benchmark for air pollution control that other coal plants should follow, even if it 
took decades. 


New Mexico biofuel plant catches fire 

By Juan Carlos LLorca 

ANTHONY, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico biofuel facility caught fire Tuesday, sending a 
giant column of black smoke into the air and prompting authorities to briefly evacuate an 
area that includes about 350 homes. 

A series of small explosions was reported at the Rio Valley Biofuels plant near the town of 
Anthony, but there was no immediate word of any injuries. Dona Ana County spokesman 
Jess Williams said. Operations manager Jed Smith said he believed all five employees who 
work at the plant were OK. 

County officials activated their emergency operations center and declared a hazardous 
materials emergency, Williams said. The immediate area was evacuated, but residents were

Texas. 

Witnesses described hearing loud explosions and seeing large flames as fire trucks and 
emergency responders rushed to the scene. 

"We heard a few explosions, then a really loud one," witness Miguel Favela said. "You could

Hyundai-Kia tops Honda for green automaker crown 

By The Associated Press 

DETROIT (AP) — A scientists' group says Hyundai-Kia has unseated Honda as the greenest 
automaker in the U.S. 

The Lfnion of Concerned Scientists ranks the eight top-selling automakers based on carbon 
and smog-forming emissions of their fleets. 

The group says all eight automakers reduced pollution for the first time. 

Honda didn't win for the first time since the scientists began doing the rankings in 1998. 

Hyundai-Kia beat Honda by equipping many models with smaller turbocharged engines. The 
scientists also say Hyundai-Kia introduced gas-electric hybrid versions of its two top-selling 
models, the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima. 

Toyota, Nissan and Volkswagen tied for third place. Detroit automakers, which sell more 
trucks, finished at the bottom.

meet the Dec. 1 deadline and is still working toward a proposal. 

"EPA is obtaining advice from our science advisers during the ongoing review to ensure that 
the ozone standards protect public health and the environment as required by the law. The 
agency has not made decisions at this time on what to propose," she said. 

The 2010 proposal had represented a move by EPA to reconsider the 2008 standard set under 
President George W. Bush. 


The agency's administrator at the time, Lisa Jackson, foimd that the 2008 standard was not as 
protective of human health as the lower proposed standard, which was recommended by 
EPA's Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee. EPA also said the rule would generate $100 
billion annually in benefits to the economy from better health. 

The proposal proved controversial, however, for the same reasons API brought up on 
Tuesday — that it would require ozone reduction programs by states covering most of rural 
America and impose huge new costs on industry. 

The earlier revision effort ended in 2011 when President Barack Obama ordered the proposal 
withdrawn in fevor of EP A reviewing the rule in 201.3, under a fi.ve-year timetable set in the 
law. He cited the goal of regulatory certainty and the weak economic recoveiy, along with 
other pollution rules by EPA, in ordering the withdrawal.

EPA's failure to undertake the review last year led to a lawsuit by environmental groups, and 
a mling last month by a federal judge that Administrator Gina McCarthy must issue a 
proposal by December. 

The agency's advisory committee is to make its own recommendations for the new review, 
and is to hold meetings on Wednesday and next week. 

API and 11 other industrial and business groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce 
and the American Chemistry Council, on May 19, wrote the committee to argue that there is 
no health evidence to support a lower standard and that it should consider the current 
standard in any range it considers. 

Feldman said other interests beyond the committee — indiistiy included — should have a 
chance to argue in favor of keeping the standard unchanged. 

"Right now we think thaf s the step we're asking for, is, take input across the board," Feldman 
said. "The science advisers are just one of the stakeholders that provide input to the 
administrator — they are not charged with setting the standard, that's not their role or 
responsibility." _ ___ __ _

NRC won't speed up move of spent fuel 


By Dave Gram 

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The LF.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is rejecting calls 
from watchdog groups and some U.S. senators to speed up moving spent nuclear fuel from 
the pools where most of it is stored, weighing in on a debate over whether transfers should be 
made for safety concerns and not just logistics. 

An NRC memo provided to The Associated Press on Tuesday shows the commission 
accepted its staffs recommendation to drop expedited transfer of the spent fuel from 
consideration. 

The NRC's decision comes after years of increasing clamor to move spent fuel from thinly 
sheltered spent fuel pools into concrete and steel casks. Many plants have begun the transfers 
because they are running out of room in their spent fuel pools without the long-promised 
national waste dump. 

The memo, issued Friday, says the NRC doesn't want to deal with the issue again. 

"The Commission has approved the staffs recommendation that this ... activity be closed and 
that no further generic assessments be pursued related to possible regulatory actions to 
require the expedited transfer of spent fuel to dry cask storage," said the memo from 
Rochelle Bavol, acting secretary of the commission to Mark Satorius, the commission's

Audit: Lack of cost control at SC nuke fuel plant 


By Meg Kinnard 

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Officials have been unable to control costs at a multibillion- 
dollar nuclear reactor fuel project at the Savannah River Site near Aiken, according to a new 
audit released this month. 

The inspector general of the U.S. Energy Department says in the report that the National 
Nuclear Security Administration and a private contractor have been "largely unsuccessful" in 
keeping tabs on the facility that would turn weapons-grade plutonium into commercial 
reactor fuel. 

The project, known as MOX, is part of a nonproliferation agreement between the United 
States and Russia, with each country agreeing to dispose of 34 tons of weapons-grade 
plutonium — an amount that officials have said is equal to 17,000 warheads. It would be the 
first of its kind in the United States. 

Criticism has swirled around the project, which has been slow to attract customers for the

06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012549 



























































































commercial reactor fuel it will produce. MOX Services has said negotiations are underway 
with several utility companies interested in buying the fuel, but none have officially signed 
on. 

The project is more than three years behind its 2016 completion deadline and is also now 
expected to cost $3 billion more than planned, according to the General Accountability 
Office. The GAO has also said the project's price tag has ballooned to nearly $8 billion, 
citing design problems and issues with Energy Department oversight as reasons for the 
increase. 


Oil stays above $104 on crises in Ukraine, Libya 

By Pablo Gorondi, The Associated Press 

The price of oil remained above $104 a barrel Tuesday as investors weighed how the 
conflicts in Ukraine and Libya were likely to affect crude supplies. 

Benchmark crude for July delivery fell 24 cents to $104.11 a barrel on the New York 
Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, dropped 30 cents to 
$110.02 on the ICE Futures exchange in London. 

Ukraine is a key conduit for Russian gas deliveries to Europe. A proposed solution to a 
dispute over Ukrainian natural gas debts to Moscow raised hopes that a supply cutoff would 
be averted. Russia's acceptance of Petro Poroshenko's victory in Sunday's presidential 
elections was also regarded as a sign of easing tensions. 

But the resurgence of fighting, as the government in Kiev responded with an airstrike to the 
pro-Russia separatists' occupation of the airport in Donetsk, a city of about 1 million in 
eastern Ukraine, underscored the uncertainties that remain. 

Meanwhile, in Libya, which has been unable to stabilize since the ouster of Moammar 
Gadhafi in 2011, the National Oil Corporation said crude exports stood at 160,000 barrels a 
day, down from 1.4 million barrels a day a year ago. Several key export facilities are 
controlled by militias who do not recognize the central government. 


Court sides with EPA on not setting new acid rain 
standard 


By Pete Yost

2017-FFP 012550 





WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the Environmental 
Protection Agency was justified in not establishing a new air quality standard for acid rain. 

The EPA decided in 2012 after a lengthy nilemaking proceeding that it needed further 
scientific study before it could set a new air quality standard for oxides of nitrogen and 
oxides of sulfur. 

Environmental groups claimed that EPA's failure to issue a new multi-pollutant rule violated 
the Clean Air Act. 

In a 3-0 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said it was 
turning aside the environmental groups' petition for judicial review because the EPA could 
not form a reasoned judgment as the Clean Air Act requires. 

"EPA did not simply leave in place the old standard," said appeals judge A. William 
Randolph. "Although it did not promulgate a new standard, it identified the data gaps that 
prevented it from doing so and initiated a data-collection program designed precisely to fill 
those gaps and facilitate future regulation." 

Once EPA found that the two current standards were inadequate with respect to acid rain, the 
agency sought to determine what new multi-pollutant standard would be appropriate, the 
judges said. EPA recognized that a new national ambient air quality standard would 
necessarily be more complex than those set historically for just one pollutant, the court 
wrote.

Energy-target proposal clears Ohio House 
committee 


By Ann Banner 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A contentious bill delaying the phase-in of Ohio's renewable 
energy and efficiency standards cleared a key legislative panel Tuesday, as state lawmakers 
seek to finish the measure before leaving for summer break. 

The proposal addresses targets for how much energy Ohio utilities must generate from 
renewable sources, such as solar and wind, by 2025. The House Public Utilities Committee 
approved the bill 13-9, sending it to the full House. 

Opponents of the legislation — including advanced-energy companies, faith and civil-rights 
leaders and environmentalists — have lobbied hard against the bill's two-year pause in the 
standards negotiated by Gov. John Kasich and senators. They say such targets promote 
environmentally friendly alternatives to fossil fuels and create high-tech jobs in the growing 
alternative-energy sector. 

The bill's backers contend the targets drive up prices for average electric consumers who 
have been given little choice in the matter. 

The measure cleared the Senate earlier this month after a committee backed off efforts to 
effectively repeal the mandates through a permanent moratorium. 


After decades, dirty Pa. power plant to get clean 

By Dina Cappiello and Kevin Begos 

HOMER CITY, Pa. (AP) — Three years ago, the operators of one of the nation's dirtiest coal- 
fired power plants warned of "immediate and devastating" consequences from the Obama 
administration's push to clean up pollution from coal. 

Sponsored Links 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012552 































Faced with cutting sulfur dioxide pollution blowing into downwind states by 80 percent in 
less than a year, lawyers for EME Homer City Generation L.P. sued the Environmental 
Protection Agency to block the rule, saying it would cause it grave harm and bring a painful 
spike in electricity bills. 

None of those dire predictions came to pass. 

Instead, the massive western Pennsylvania power plant is expected in a few years to turn 
from one of the worst polluters in the country to a model for how coal-fired power plants can 
slash pollution. 

The story of the Homer City plant reflects the precarious position of older coal-fired plants 
these days, squeezed between cheap and plentiful natural gas and a string of environmental 
rules the Obama administration has targeted at coal, which supplies about half the nation's 
electricity. The latest regulation, the first proposal to curb earth-warming carbon dioxide 
from power plants, is due next week. It will pose yet another challenge to coal-fired power 
plants. Dozens of coal-fueled units have already announced they would close in the face of 
new rules. 

But Homer City also shows how political and economic rhetoric sometimes doesn't match 
reality. Despite claims by Republicans and industry critics that the Obama administration's 
regulations will shut down coal-fired power plants, Homer City survived — partly because it 
bought itself time by tying up the regulation in courts. Even environmental groups that 
applaud each coal plant closing and protested Homer City's pollution, now say the facility is 
setting a benchmark for air pollution control that other coal plants should follow, even if it 
took decades. 


New Mexico biofuel plant catches fire 

By Juan Carlos LLorca 

ANTHONY, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico biofuel facility caught fire Tuesday, sending a 
giant column of black smoke into the air and prompting authorities to briefly evacuate an 
area that includes about 350 homes. 

A series of small explosions was reported at the Rio Valley Biofuels plant near the town of 
Anthony, but there was no immediate word of any injuries. Dona Ana County spokesman 
Jess Williams said. Operations manager Jed Smith said he believed all five employees who 
work at the plant were OK. 

County officials activated their emergency operations center and declared a hazardous 
materials emergency, Williams said. The immediate area was evacuated, but residents were

Anthony is on the New Mexico-Texas line between Las Cruces, New Mexico, and El Paso, 
Texas. 

Witnesses described hearing loud explosions and seeing large flames as fire trucks and 
emergency responders rushed to the scene. 

"We heard a few explosions, then a really loud one," witness Miguel Favela said. "You could

Hyundai-Kia tops Honda for green automaker crown 

By The Associated Press 

DETROIT (AP) — A scientists' group says Hyundai-Kia has unseated Honda as the greenest 
automaker in the U.S. 

The Lfnion of Concerned Scientists ranks the eight top-selling automakers based on carbon 
and smog-forming emissions of their fleets. 

The group says all eight automakers reduced pollution for the first time. 

Honda didn't win for the first time since the scientists began doing the rankings in 1998. 

Hyundai-Kia beat Honda by equipping many models with smaller turbocharged engines. The 
scientists also say Hyundai-Kia introduced gas-electric hybrid versions of its two top-selling 
models, the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima. 

Toyota, Nissan and Volkswagen tied for third place. Detroit automakers, which sell more 
trucks, finished at the bottom.

When we have VW in to see us, I would prefer that they not be able to hide behind a

Subject: Quick Update - VW excess emissions 

Bryon, 

Thanks for the conversation yesterday. 

A couple quick follow ups. 

1. We did NOT send VW or BMW a copy of WVU's draft report, but we did send 

them a copy of WVU's presentation at CRC - as we discussed. No response from 

VW. 

2. We’ve had an internal dialogue about these puzzling high emissions. The 
highway route run by WVU did have high NOx emissions, but the urban routes they 
ran in LA, SF, and SD all had emissions 2-3 times higher than the highway route. 
This suggests that there may have been a problem with low catalyst temperatures, 
but the emissions were fine on the NEDC (chassis test), which should have lower 
catalyst temperatures than the the in-use routes (the NEDC is Ic^t l^^ss rssIN/ 

than the FTP).

they haven’t seen the underlying information. If you are uncomfortable sharing a draft with VW

we can be sure that everyone has the same facts in front of them.

A couple quick follow ups. 


1. We did NOT send VW or BMW a copy of WVU's draft report, but we did send them a 
copy of WVU's presentation at CRC - as we discussed. No response from VW. 


2. We’ve had an internal dialogue about these puzzling high emissions. The highway route run 
by WVU did have high NOx emissions, but the urban routes they ran in LA, SF, and SD all had 
emissions 2-3 times higher than the highway route. This suggests that there may have been a 
problem with low catalyst temperatures, but the emissions were fine on the NEDC (chassis test), 
which should have lower catalyst temperatures than the the in-use routes (the NEDC is a lot less 
aggressive than the FTP).

Harry, 


1. Combining VW/Porsche 201.2 CAFE calciilatioiis: Fll call you about combining VW & 

Porsche CAFE fleets for MY 2012. I have a few questions, etc. As EPA staff indicated to 
NHTSA last year, it will take VW (and EPA) a couple months to combine the VW & Porsche 
2012 fleets for CAFE calculations (and not combine them for GHG calculations); to recalculate 
their CAFE value and send EPA a revised CAFE model year report, etc. 


2. HD 2b/3 2015 PreM.Y Reports & Chrysler/CMminins final 2013 MY report: See my 

previous email—I’ll try to send you an update and all the HD 2b/3 CAFE/GHG reports in a day 
or so. [First, I need to see if Daimler, Chrysler & Cummins sent their 2015 pre-MY reports to 
EPA yet. If so, I need to double check the mfr values and update the EPA summary.] 


3. EPA Confirmatory Testing HD 2b/3 vehicles: EPA will review the manufacturer’s EPA 

test request for HD 2b/3 4WD vehicles and decide which vehicles to test here at our Ann Arbor 
MI lab. We can test HD vehicles up to and beyond 14,000 GVW (14,000 lb test weight) here at 
the EPA lab—so yes, we can test them. We don’t test them on a 4WD dyno unless the mfr also 
tested the vehicle on a 4WD dyno. Normally, we disconnect the driveshaft and test them in the 
2WD mode—on a 2WD dynamometer with the a, b, c dyno coefficients set to simulate the 
vehicle road load horsepower (RLHP) of a vehicle driven on the road (e.g. in the 2WD mode for 
selectable 2WD/4WD vehicles).

re: 2015 FE Guide - Errors in EPA's data base as of May 28, 2014 


Attached are the data in Verify as of May 28, 2014. Labeis with pea green fili in the first few columns 
have errors which need to be corrected before I can have the data posted on www.fueleconomv.aov . 

The errors are also highlighted in yellow fill in the column where the error occurred. [Note that the 
method our macro uses for calculating voluntarily increased C02 values is outlined in section 10.1 of CD- 
13-11—(if the macro flagged any errors in voluntarily increased C02 values).] 


The next normal posting of 2015 FE Label data will be on June 1,2014 (on a monthly schedule where I 
run the query on the 1®*, 9*'’,15* and 23rd of the month) and send the data to DOE for posting on that day 
(or a day later). 


Please make any needed corrections to Verify when you get a chance.

The next normal posting of 2015 FE Label data will be on June 1,2014 (on a monthly schedule where I 
run the query on the T‘, 9*'",15* and 23rd of the month) and send the data to DOE for posting on that day

Ex. 7 I 


Attached is WVU's final report on the 3 LDV diesel vehicles they tested, using PEMS. It 
hasn't been released yet, so please keep it within VW for the time being, but I thought you 
would appreciate a heads-up. It should be released publicly soon, although we do not 
intend to make a big press release out of the report. We plan on posting it on our website 
and letting it go into our RSS feed, but nothing more — no publication announcement, no 
blogs, no twittering. 

We have been discussing internally why the VW vehicles had such high emissions in-use. 
One thought was that in-use driving had higher loads and, thus, might be exceeding the 
capacity of the NOx control systems or the systems might not be calibrated as well at higher 
loads. However, the US06 test results for NOx at CARD were much lower than the in-use 
highway route (#1) used for the PEMS testing, even though the acceleration rates (Figure 
3.12 in the report) and the C02 emissions were much higher on the US06 than on the in-use 
highway route. In addition, the in-use urban routes (#2- LA, #4-SD, #5-SF) had NOx 
emissions 2-3 times higher than the in-use highway route. 

Another thought is that the catalyst might not be getting hot enough to work properly in- 
use, similar to the in-use HD diesel NOx issue. The problem I have with this theory is that 
NOx emissions overNEDC testing at CARB were quite low. 

The following table compares the chassis dyno test data from the CARB logs (FTP, NEDC, 
US06) with the WVU PEMS results from Tables 4.3 and 4.6 of the report:

To whom it may concern: 


The Audi A3 Quattro comes with the 2.0 L turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive. 
While the standard Audi A3 comes with the 1.8 L turbocharged engine and front-wheel 
drive. Here is a link to the mistake:

Sara, Karen, Dave and Bob, 


I apologize for not reviewing the spreadsheet earlier. I must have mistakenly deleted it. 


I like the changes and believe that this structure will allow both agencies to get the information 


that we both need in the most efficient manner. 


I especially like the modification that allows different base tire sizes for the front and rear axles. 

I don’t anticipate the need for manufacturers to provide both sets of data that frequently, but we 
are all aware that quite a few sports cars and SUVs are equipped with different front and rear tire 
sizes. Bravo for recognizing the need for that separation. 


I approve of the spreadsheet as modified. 


On a related issue, I have verified that our Administrator has agreed with our Chief Counsel’s 

office that VW and Porsche will be combined for CAFE compliance purposes beginning with 
MY 2012. A fonxial letter to the companies is being drafted and hopefully will be sent out 
within a week or so. On our side, we will change the manufacturer/brand relationship to have 
Porsche as brand of VW starting with MY 2012. I believe that Sara said that we’d get the final 
data for both the companies through the webservice later this year after the companies resubmit 
the data. When that data is ready, if we can get a notification that would be appreciated. We are 
designing the database so that we would get an automatic notification when new data is 
available, but I’m not sure if it will be ready for our production environment by the time the VW 
data is available. 


I appreciate our good working relationship and hope that it continues in the future.

everything I’ll remove those strikethroughs and re-number the data elements so that they are 
sequential once again. 


If you have any questions or would like me to go through it with you just let me know.

Thanks for the follow up. We will let you know timing of implementing these changes. 


For the notifications on VW, we will let you know when the data is there for you. Until you let 

us know otherwise, we will also let you know when other (2012 toyota car, 2013 MY all) 
datasets have completed our process and become available for you to piek up.

Sara, Karen, Dave and Bob, 


I apologize for not reviewing the spreadsheet earlier. I must have mistakenly deleted it. 


I like the changes and believe that this structure will allow both agencies to get the information 

that we both need in the most efficient manner. 


I especially like the modification that allows different base tire sizes for the front and rear axles. 

I don’t anticipate the need for manufacturers to provide both sets of data that frequently, but we 
are all aware that quite a few sports cars and SUVs are equipped with different front and rear tire 
sizes. Bravo for recognizing the need for that separation.

I approve of the spreadsheet as modified. 


On a related issue, I have verified that our Administrator has agreed with our Chief Counsel’s 
office that VW and Porsche will be combined for CAFE compliance purposes beginning with 
MY 2012. A formal letter to the companies is being drafted and hopefully will be sent out 
within a week or so. On our side, we will change the manufacturer/brand relationship to have 
Porsche as brand of VW starting with MY 2012. I believe that Sara said that we’d get the final 
data for both the companies through the webservice later this year after the companies resubmit 
the data. When that data is ready, if we can get a notification that would be appreciated. We are 
designing the database so that we would get an automatic notification when new data is 
available, but I’m not sure if it will be ready for our production environment by the time the VW 
data is available. 


I appreciate our good working relationship and hope that it continues in the future. 


Thanks!

Hello Ken, 


Dave Good is away from the offiee until next Wednesday but he did manage to update the 
spreadsheet (see attached) based on the discussion we had last week. His changes are the cells 
shaded in yellow. I made some further edits which are shaded in green. Even though he’s away 
we’d like to push this along if we can so that we can get it to our contractor. Therefore, could 
you please review the updates and make sure everything is to your liking? I kept the 
strikethroughs in the document so you could better see what changed. Once we finalize 
everything I’ll remove those strikethroughs and re-number the data elements so that they are 
sequential once again.

Sara, 


That sounds great! 


By the way, we are planning on several demos for our management team in the next month or so 

and we’ll be showing them how we can pull data from the webservice and load it in with a few 
steps. Hopefully, they’ll be impressed.

Dave, 


Thanks for the information. The CAFE database team will await for the final certified MY 2012 
CAFE report for VW to be available through the webseivice prior to NFITSA incorporating that 
data officially in the system. We understand that the 2 month timeframe is an estimate. 


Providing the attached pdfs will greatly assist my friends in enforcement as they proceed with 
their efforts. 


Thanks.

Flarry,

2017-FFP 012669 



We will await the NETS A letter to VW before we request that VW revise their 2012 CAFE 
model year report and data entry into EPA’s database. It will likely take approximately 2 months 
for VW to combine the VW & Porsche 2012 CAFE calculations, to recalculate the CAFE values 
and send EPA a revised CAFE model year report, etc. 


Attached are 2012 VW-only CAFE Calculations for domestic pass cars, import pass cars & light 
trucks (2 attachments)—which don’t include any 2012 Porsche models. [FYI—the only 2012 
carline in the domestic pass car class is the Passat (which is made in Tennessee).] 


I double checked the attached CAFE values & production volume in both attachments and they 
look correct to me (and agree with the VW model year report). Please disregard the Greenhouse 
Gas values. 


We sent you the 2012 Porsche import pass car and light truck CAFE values in December, 2013. 
Let me know if you need a copy. 


Two corrections for the VW passenger car report: 


For some models, the enclosed “CAFE/GHG Calculation Information Report” (page 11 of the 
passenger car report) does not show the correct target fuel economy values (Trgt FE) or the 
correct target greenhouse gas values (Trgt GHG). The EPA CAFE and GHG calculations were 
performed using the correct target values, as shown below for the following models:

Harry, 


1. Combining VW/Porsche 2012 CAFE calculations: Fll call you about combining VW & 

Porsche CAFE fleets for MY 2012. I have a few questions, etc. As EPA staff indicated to 
NHTSA last year, it will take VW (and EPA) a couple months to combine the VW & Porsche 
2012 fleets for CAFE calculations (and not combine them for GHG calculations); to recalculate 
their CAFE value and send EPA a revised CAFE model year report, etc. 


2. HD 2b/3 2015 PreMY Reports & Chrysler/Cmiimins final 2013 MY report: See my 

previous email—I’ll try to send you an update and all the HD 2b/3 CAFE/GHG reports in a day 
or so. [First, I need to see if Daimler, Chrysler & Cummins sent their 2015 pre-MY reports to 
EPA yet. If so, I need to double check the mfr values and update the EPA summary.] 


3. EPA Confirmatory Testing HD 2b/3 vehicles: EPA will review the manufacturer’s EPA 

test request for HD 2b/3 4WD vehicles and decide which vehicles to test here at our Ann Arbor 
MI lab. We can test HD vehicles up to and beyond 14,000 GVW (14,000 lb test weight) here at 
the EPA lab—so yes, we can test them. We don’t test them on a 4WD dyno unless the mfr also 
tested the vehicle on a 4WD dyno. Normally, we disconnect the driveshaft and test them in the 
2WD mode—on a 2WD dynamometer with the a, b, c dyno coefficients set to simulate the 
vehicle road load horsepower (RLHP) of a vehicle driven on the road (e.g. in the 2WD mode for 
selectable 2WD/4WD vehicles).

1. NHTSA has decided that VW and Porsche have combined fleets for MY 2012. Please 

_ r 

generate IP and LT CAFE mpgs accordingly as soon as possible. 

2. Following up on an email sent by Maurice Hicks: does EPA have any 2b&3 data since the 
last sharing in January 2014? Also, do summary charts exist, i.e., for MYs 2013 & 2014? 

3. For 4WD 2b & 3 vehicles, will EPA do dyno testing on them? Is there a max GVWR or 
GAWR limit on the 4WD dyno?

Harry, 


We will await the NHTSA letter to VW before we request that VW revise their 2012 CAFE 

model year report and data entry into EPA’s database. It will likely take approximately 2 months 
for VW to combine tlie VW & Porsche 2012 CAFE calculations, to recalculate the CAFE values 
and send EPA a revised CAFE model year report, etc. 


Attached are 2012 VW-only CAFE Calculations for domestic pass cars, import pass cars & light 

trucks (2 attachments)—which don’t include any 2012 Porsche models. [FYI—the only 2012 
carline in the domestic pass car class is the Passat (which is made in Tennessee).] 


I double checked the attached CAFE values & production volume in both attachments and they

06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012683 





look correct to me (and agree with the VW model year report). Please disregard the Greenhouse 
Gas values. 


We sent you the 2012 Porsche import pass car and light truck CAFE values in December, 2013. 
Let me know if you need a copy. 


Two corrections for the VW passenger car report: 


For some models, the enclosed “CAFE/GHG Calculation Information Report” (page 11 of the 
passenger car report) does not show the correct target fuel economy values (Trgt FE) or the 
correct target greenhouse gas values (Trgt GHG). The EPA CAFE and GHG calculations were 
performed using the correct target values, as shown below for the following models;

Keep us posted on the status of the NHTSA letter to VW.

Harry, 


1. Combining VW/Porsche 2012 CAFE calculations: I’ll call you about combining VW & 
Porsche CAFE fleets for MY 2012. I have a few questions, etc. As EPA staff indicated to 
NHTSA last year, it will take VW (and EPA) a couple months to combine the VW & Porsche 
2012 fleets for CAFE calculations (and not combine them for GHG calculations); to recalculate 
their CAFE value and send EPA a revised CAFE model year report, etc. 


2. HD 2b/3 2015 PreM.Y Reports & Chrysler/Cummins final 2013 MY report: See my 

previous email—I’ll try to send you an update and all the HD 2b/3 CAFE/GHG reports in a day 
or so. [First, I need to see if Daimler, Chrysler & Cummins sent their 2015 pre-MY reports to 
EPA yet. If so, I need to double check the mfr values and update the EPA summary.] 


3. EPA Confirmatory Testing HD 2b/3 vehicles: EPA will review the manufacturer’s EPA 

test request for HD 2b/3 4WD vehicles and decide which vehicles to test here at our Ann Arbor 
MI lab. We can test HD vehicles up to and beyond 14,000 GVW (14,000 lb test weight) here at 
the EPA lab—so yes, we can test them. We don’t test them on a 4WD dyno unless the mfr also 
tested the vehicle on a 4WD dyno. Normally, we disconnect the driveshaft and test them in the 
2WD mode—on a 2WD dynamometer with the a, b, c dyno coefficients set to simulate the 
vehicle road load horsepower (RLHP) of a vehicle driven on the road (e.g. in the 2WD mode for 
selectable 2WD/4WD vehicles).

1. NHTSA has decided that VW and Porsche have combined fleets for MY 2012. Please 

r 

generate IP and LT CAFE mpgs accordingly as soon as possible. 

2. Following up on an email sent by Maurice Hicks: does EPA have any 2b&3 data since the 
last sharing in January 2014? Also, do summary charts exist, i.e., for MYs 2013 & 2014? 

3. For 4WD 2b & 3 vehicles, will EPA do dyno testing on them? Is there a max GVWR or 
GAWR limit on the 4WD dyno?

lA launches reports on crude export ban 


By Edward Felker 


The Energy Department's data and analysis wing has launched the first public government 
examination of the U.S. oil market in response to calls from industry and lawmakers for a 
review of the ban on crude oil exports. 


The Energy Information Administration on Thu:rsday, without feiifkre, published the first of 
what it said would be a series of analyses of U.S. production and the impacts of lifting or 
easing the ban. In the report, on the short te:rm oil outlook by types of c:riide, EIA said a 
majority of production through 2015, about 60 percent, would consist of lighter grades.

Industry contends booming light petroleum production could soon exceed domestic refining 
capacity and should be considered for export. 

The report comes as the Obama administration has said it is reviewing the ban, put into law 
in 1975. 

The oil industry, with allies in Congress, has begun lobbying for a repeal of the ban. It argues 
that U.S. refining capacity is mostly optimized for heavier grades and that exports would 
help offset the nation's demand for imported oil, while keeping the oil boom undemay. 

ElA said the reports are being prepared in response to "multiple requests," but was not 
specific about the sources. 

Among those requests was a joint April request for EIA study by Senate Energy and Natural 
Resources Chair Mary Landrieu, D-La., and the panel's ranking Republican Sen. Lisa 
Murkowski. 


They asked EIA to report on production by grades, the relative competitiveness of U.S. 
refiners, the ban's im,pact on refiners, consumers and producers, and the economic impact of 
lifting the ban. 


Aides to Landrieu did not respond on Friday to a request tor comment. Murkowski said she 
welcomed the EIA report. 

"This in-depth and rigorous analysis is exactly what I had in mind when I asked the EIA to 
examine the rapidly changing picture of U.S. oil production," she said. 


"The growing mismatch between the type of oil that is increasingly being produced in the 
middle of the country and our ability to refine it is causing distortions in the market. Lifting 
the export ban will spur domestic production and inject much-needed investment in the U.S, 
economy," she added. 


The American Petroleum Institute has been calline either for the administration to use 
executive authority to allow exports, or for Congress to repeal the ban outright. 


It issued a state-by-state report Thursday on potential benefits, adding to an earlier study that 
projected an, additional .300,000 U.S. jobs by 2020 from exports, and annual consumer 
savings of $5.8 billion between 2015 and 2035. 

A spokesman at API said the group had not yet examined the EIA report. 

Separately, consulting firm IHS issued its own report Thursday, funded by major oil 
companies, that found exports would support nearly 1 million U.S. jobs by driving up 
domestic production by 3 million, barrels a day and investments of $750 billion.

IHS said exports would exert downward pressure on gasoline prices by 8 cents per gallon by 
injecting a new source into world markets, saving consumers up to $265 billion from 2016- 
2030. 

Senior White House adviser John Podesta told reporters Thursday that the administration's 
examination of the ban is underway, but gave no clues about its next step. 

Energy Secretaiy Ernest Moniz and Podesta have previously said the ban is getting a closer 
look. Podesta said that includes the sources, types and volumes of crude being produced, as 
well as U.S. capacity to refine light crudes. 

"We' re conrinuine to review that and when we have something to say about it, we'll say it."

Oil falls below $103, ends week down 1.6 percent 


By The Associated Press 

The price of oil fell below $103 per barrel Friday on ample supplies of crude and fuels. 

Benchmark U.S. crude for July delivery fell 87 cents to close at $102.71 a barrel in New 
York. The contract closed down 1.6 percent for the week, though it finished the month up 
nearly 3 percent. 

Brent crude, a benchmark for international oil used by many U.S. refineries, fell 56 cents to 
close at $109.41 a barrel in London. 

The price of crude was pulled down in part by the falling prices of wholesale gasoline and 
heating oil, suggesting that the U.S. has ample supplies of refined fuels. That could crimp 
demand for crude oil in coming weeks. 

Crude supplies in the U.S. are also plentiful, but crude prices were pushed higher during the 
month because inventories at the U.S. trading hub where benchmark crude is priced have 
fallen sharply. 

Next week traders are expected to focus on a string of macroeconomic reports, including a 
manufacturing report and employment data that could change expectations for gasoline, 
diesel and crude demand. 



Obama launches public push on power plant rules 


By Josh Lederman 

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama launched a show of support Friday for 
new emissions rules for power plants, putting the weight of the White House behind the 
government's controversial strategy for combating climate change.

Three days before his administration is set to unveil the first carbon dioxide limits on existing 
plants, Obama paid a surprise visit to a children's hospital and met with young asthma 
patients, hoping to call attention to the health effects of air pollution. He also talked up the 
need to curb carbon pollution during a hurricane preparedness briefing at Federal Emergency 
Management Agency headquarters. 

"The changes we're seeing in our climate means that, unfortunately, storms like Sandy could 
end up being more common and more devastating," Obama said, invoking the deadly 2012 
superstorm that's become a rallying cry for climate activists. 

The pair of appearances kicked off a public campaign by the president to rally Americans 
behind groundbreaking power plant rules that have already drawn scorn from the energy 
industry, business groups and even some Democrats from oil-dependent states. 

Obama's visit with young asthmatics at the Children's National Medical Center was closed to 
reporters, but the White House said while at the hospital, Obama was also taping his weekly 
radio and Internet address, which spotlights the carbon rules and will be released Saturday. 



White House proposes updated Great Lakes plan 


By John Flesher 

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — The Obama administration is proposing an updated 
blueprint for Great Lakes environmental restoration that puts greater emphasis on climate 
change and using science to select projects and measure their effectiveness. 

Congress has appropriated roughly $1.6 billion for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, 
with the first installment in 2010. The administration is proposing to extend the program 
another five years. 

"Protecting communities around the Great Lakes and restoring this important ecosystem is a 
national and binational imperative," said Gina McCarthy, chief of the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, which coordinates the program with support from 10 other federal 
departments. 

They have awarded more than 2,100 grants to universities, nonprofits, tribes and government 
agencies across the eight-state region for projects including removal of sediments laced with 
toxic chemicals, rebuilding wetlands and uprooting invasive plants. The program also has 
supported the fight to prevent aggressive Asian carp from reaching the lakes. 

A federal task force developed the new installment in consultation with regional stakeholder 
groups, said Cameron Davis, a senior adviser to McCarthy. A final version is to be adopted 
by Oct. 1, allowing time for public comment.

Los Alamos unable to meet nuke waste deadline 


By Jeri Clausing 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Los Alamos National Laboratory won't be able to meet a 
deadline for getting toxic waste from decades of building nuclear bombs off its northern New 
Mexico campus before wildfire season peaks, the U.S. Department of Energy said Friday. 

In a statement, the department said it has notified the New Mexico Environment Department 
that it can't move the last of thousands of barrels of waste containing things like 
contaminated gloves and tools until officials are sure it is safe. 

A canister shipped from Los Alamos to the Waste Isolation Pilot Project has been linked to a 
radiation release Feb. 14 at the underground repository in southeastern New Mexico. 

Officials are investigating whether hundreds of other barrels from Los Alamos that are 
currently stored at the West Isolation Pilot Plant, Los Alamos and in West Texas are at risk 
of releasing radiation. 

The waste was packed with cat litter to absorb moisture. Officials are trying to determine 
whether a switch from inorganic to organic litter is to blame for a chemical reaction with 
nitrate salts that caused the accident that contaminated 22 workers and indefinitely shuttered 
the plant. 

Deputy Undersecretary David Klaus said the energy department has "made great strides in 
cleanup at the Los Alamos National Laboratory," but it is halting shipments "until we can 
reassure the public that it is safe to do so." 

"This was a tough decision to make and the Department remains committed to solving this 
issue and resuming shipments," Klaus said. 



Feds: Arch Coal workers took $2M in kickbacks 


By Jonathan Mattise 

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Arch Coal employees at a West Virginia mine are charged 
with pocketing almost $2 million from vendors in a pay-to-play kickback scheme, federal 
prosecutors said Friday. 

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said the widespread setup required vendors to pay kickbacks 
to Arch Coal employees to do business with the coal company.

Four employees at Arch Coal's Mountain Laurel mining complex in Logan County are 
accused of taking kickbacks from 2007 to 2012. Prosecutors said the mine's former general 
manager, David E. Runyon, was at the center of the setup. 

Prosecutors said some companies spent more than $400,000 to maintain lucrative contracts 
with Arch Coal, one of the biggest coal producers and marketers worldwide. 

Ten people in all have been charged, with vendors, contractors and four Arch employees 
among them. The employees are no longer with the company. 

Companies knew Arch Coal would sever their contracts if the side payments stopped. 
Likewise, Runyon knew losing the contracts would hurt the companies, according to court 
documents. 



US rig count up 9 to 1,866 


By The Associated Press 

HOUSTON (AP) — Oilfield services company Baker Hughes Inc. says the number of rigs 
exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. increased by nine this week to 1,866. 

The Houston firm said in its weekly report Friday that 1,536 rigs were exploring for oil and 
326 for gas. Four were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago there were 1,771 active rigs. 

Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, Oklahoma gained eight rigs, Texas gained five 
Wyoming gained two and Alaska and California each increased by one apiece. 

North Dakota lost five rigs while Kansas, New Mexico and Ohio each decreased by one. 

Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Utah and West Virginia were all unchanged.

lA launches reports on crude export ban 


By Edward Felker 


The Energy Department's data and analysis wing has launched the first public government 
examination of the U.S. oil market in response to calls from industry and lawmakers for a 
review of the ban on crude oil exports. 


The Energy Information Administration on Thu:rsday, without feiifkre, published the first of 
what it said would be a series of analyses of U.S. production and the impacts of lifting or 
easing the ban. In the report, on the short te:rm oil outlook by types of c:riide, EIA said a 
majority of production through 2015, about 60 percent, would consist of lighter grades. 

•> -I ^ ...... II . ...... in .Ill—

2017-FFP 012708 
























Industry contends booming light petroleum production could soon exceed domestic refining 
capacity and should be considered for export. 

The report comes as the Obama administration has said it is reviewing the ban, put into law 
in 1975. 

The oil industry, with allies in Congress, has begun lobbying for a repeal of the ban. It argues 
that U.S. refining capacity is mostly optimized for heavier grades and that exports would 
help offset the nation's demand for imported oil, while keeping the oil boom undemay. 

ElA said the reports are being prepared in response to "multiple requests," but was not 
specific about the sources. 

Among those requests was a joint April request for EIA study by Senate Energy and Natural 
Resources Chair Mary Landrieu, D-La., and the panel's ranking Republican Sen. Lisa 
Murkowski. 


They asked EIA to report on production by grades, the relative competitiveness of U.S. 
refiners, the ban's im,pact on refiners, consumers and producers, and the economic impact of 
lifting the ban. 


Aides to Landrieu did not respond on Friday to a request tor comment. Murkowski said she 
welcomed the EIA report. 

"This in-depth and rigorous analysis is exactly what I had in mind when I asked the EIA to 
examine the rapidly changing picture of U.S. oil production," she said. 


"The growing mismatch between the type of oil that is increasingly being produced in the 
middle of the country and our ability to refine it is causing distortions in the market. Lifting 
the export ban will spur domestic production and inject much-needed investment in the U.S, 
economy," she added. 


The American Petroleum Institute has been calline either for the administration to use 
executive authority to allow exports, or for Congress to repeal the ban outright. 


It issued a state-by-state report Thursday on potential benefits, adding to an earlier study that 
projected an, additional .300,000 U.S. jobs by 2020 from exports, and annual consumer 
savings of $5.8 billion between 2015 and 2035. 

A spokesman at API said the group had not yet examined the EIA report. 

Separately, consulting firm IHS issued its own report Thursday, funded by major oil 
companies, that found exports would support nearly 1 million U.S. jobs by driving up 
domestic production by 3 million, barrels a day and investments of $750 billion. 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012709 






IHS said exports would exert downward pressure on gasoline prices by 8 cents per gallon by 
injecting a new source into world markets, saving consumers up to $265 billion from 2016- 
2030. 

Senior White House adviser John Podesta told reporters Thursday that the administration's 
examination of the ban is underway, but gave no clues about its next step. 

Energy Secretaiy Ernest Moniz and Podesta have previously said the ban is getting a closer 
look. Podesta said that includes the sources, types and volumes of crude being produced, as 
well as U.S. capacity to refine light crudes. 

"We' re conrinuine to review that and when we have something to say about it, we'll say it."

Oil falls below $103, ends week down 1.6 percent 


By The Associated Press 

The price of oil fell below $103 per barrel Friday on ample supplies of crude and fuels. 

Benchmark U.S. crude for July delivery fell 87 cents to close at $102.71 a barrel in New 
York. The contract closed down 1.6 percent for the week, though it finished the month up 
nearly 3 percent. 

Brent crude, a benchmark for international oil used by many U.S. refineries, fell 56 cents to 
close at $109.41 a barrel in London. 

The price of crude was pulled down in part by the falling prices of wholesale gasoline and 
heating oil, suggesting that the U.S. has ample supplies of refined fuels. That could crimp 
demand for crude oil in coming weeks. 

Crude supplies in the U.S. are also plentiful, but crude prices were pushed higher during the 
month because inventories at the U.S. trading hub where benchmark crude is priced have 
fallen sharply. 

Next week traders are expected to focus on a string of macroeconomic reports, including a 
manufacturing report and employment data that could change expectations for gasoline, 
diesel and crude demand. 



Obama launches public push on power plant rules 


By Josh Lederman 

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama launched a show of support Friday for 
new emissions rules for power plants, putting the weight of the White House behind the 
government's controversial strategy for combating climate change. 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012711 























Three days before his administration is set to unveil the first carbon dioxide limits on existing 
plants, Obama paid a surprise visit to a children's hospital and met with young asthma 
patients, hoping to call attention to the health effects of air pollution. He also talked up the 
need to curb carbon pollution during a hurricane preparedness briefing at Federal Emergency 
Management Agency headquarters. 

"The changes we're seeing in our climate means that, unfortunately, storms like Sandy could 
end up being more common and more devastating," Obama said, invoking the deadly 2012 
superstorm that's become a rallying cry for climate activists. 

The pair of appearances kicked off a public campaign by the president to rally Americans 
behind groundbreaking power plant rules that have already drawn scorn from the energy 
industry, business groups and even some Democrats from oil-dependent states. 

Obama's visit with young asthmatics at the Children's National Medical Center was closed to 
reporters, but the White House said while at the hospital, Obama was also taping his weekly 
radio and Internet address, which spotlights the carbon rules and will be released Saturday. 



White House proposes updated Great Lakes plan 


By John Flesher 

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — The Obama administration is proposing an updated 
blueprint for Great Lakes environmental restoration that puts greater emphasis on climate 
change and using science to select projects and measure their effectiveness. 

Congress has appropriated roughly $1.6 billion for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, 
with the first installment in 2010. The administration is proposing to extend the program 
another five years. 

"Protecting communities around the Great Lakes and restoring this important ecosystem is a 
national and binational imperative," said Gina McCarthy, chief of the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, which coordinates the program with support from 10 other federal 
departments. 

They have awarded more than 2,100 grants to universities, nonprofits, tribes and government 
agencies across the eight-state region for projects including removal of sediments laced with 
toxic chemicals, rebuilding wetlands and uprooting invasive plants. The program also has 
supported the fight to prevent aggressive Asian carp from reaching the lakes. 

A federal task force developed the new installment in consultation with regional stakeholder 
groups, said Cameron Davis, a senior adviser to McCarthy. A final version is to be adopted 
by Oct. 1, allowing time for public comment.

Los Alamos unable to meet nuke waste deadline 


By Jeri Clausing 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Los Alamos National Laboratory won't be able to meet a 
deadline for getting toxic waste from decades of building nuclear bombs off its northern New 
Mexico campus before wildfire season peaks, the U.S. Department of Energy said Friday. 

In a statement, the department said it has notified the New Mexico Environment Department 
that it can't move the last of thousands of barrels of waste containing things like 
contaminated gloves and tools until officials are sure it is safe. 

A canister shipped from Los Alamos to the Waste Isolation Pilot Project has been linked to a 
radiation release Feb. 14 at the underground repository in southeastern New Mexico. 

Officials are investigating whether hundreds of other barrels from Los Alamos that are 
currently stored at the West Isolation Pilot Plant, Los Alamos and in West Texas are at risk 
of releasing radiation. 

The waste was packed with cat litter to absorb moisture. Officials are trying to determine 
whether a switch from inorganic to organic litter is to blame for a chemical reaction with 
nitrate salts that caused the accident that contaminated 22 workers and indefinitely shuttered 
the plant. 

Deputy Undersecretary David Klaus said the energy department has "made great strides in 
cleanup at the Los Alamos National Laboratory," but it is halting shipments "until we can 
reassure the public that it is safe to do so." 

"This was a tough decision to make and the Department remains committed to solving this 
issue and resuming shipments," Klaus said. 



Feds: Arch Coal workers took $2M in kickbacks 


By Jonathan Mattise 

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Arch Coal employees at a West Virginia mine are charged 
with pocketing almost $2 million from vendors in a pay-to-play kickback scheme, federal 
prosecutors said Friday. 

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said the widespread setup required vendors to pay kickbacks 
to Arch Coal employees to do business with the coal company.

2017-FFP 012713 









Four employees at Arch Coal's Mountain Laurel mining complex in Logan County are 
accused of taking kickbacks from 2007 to 2012. Prosecutors said the mine's former general 
manager, David E. Runyon, was at the center of the setup. 

Prosecutors said some companies spent more than $400,000 to maintain lucrative contracts 
with Arch Coal, one of the biggest coal producers and marketers worldwide. 

Ten people in all have been charged, with vendors, contractors and four Arch employees 
among them. The employees are no longer with the company. 

Companies knew Arch Coal would sever their contracts if the side payments stopped. 
Likewise, Runyon knew losing the contracts would hurt the companies, according to court 
documents. 



US rig count up 9 to 1,866 


By The Associated Press 

HOUSTON (AP) — Oilfield services company Baker Hughes Inc. says the number of rigs 
exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. increased by nine this week to 1,866. 

The Houston firm said in its weekly report Friday that 1,536 rigs were exploring for oil and 
326 for gas. Four were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago there were 1,771 active rigs. 

Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, Oklahoma gained eight rigs, Texas gained five 
Wyoming gained two and Alaska and California each increased by one apiece. 

North Dakota lost five rigs while Kansas, New Mexico and Ohio each decreased by one. 

Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Utah and West Virginia were all unchanged.

A Reduced Renewable Fuel Standard - The 

Philadelphia Story f 


Jessie Stolark, Environmental bnd Energy Study Institute • / Posted May 31, 2014 


According to several news outlets, the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) 2014 Renewable 
Volume Obligates (RVOs) are now at the White House Office of Management and Budget 
(0MB) for review, and a final decision on the 2014 RVOs is expected sometime in June. 
With a decision imminent, it’s worth asking how exactly the EPA got to a reduced biofuels 
target - despite a robust industry that met targets in many fuel categories last year and is now 
seeing commercial levels of advanced cellulosic fuels. A watchdog group - the Citizens for 
Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is now asking if two Philadelphia area 
refineries may have played a role in the administration’s decision. [ read more ... ]

By Gabriella Dunn, Des Mdiiies Agister • • PosteS June 2, 2014 11 

The U.S. standard mixture of ethanol and gasoline is ElO, which means 10 percent ethanol 
and 90 percent gasoline. Because com ethanol produces more than 10 percent, the cellulosic 
biofuel industry confronts a saturated market. The EPA approved the use of El5 fuel, which 
increased the size of the ethanol market, but it hasn’t yet become the industry standai'd. But 
straight biofuels and higher blends of ethanol, like E85, call for specialized pumps and cars 
that have limited availability throughout the nation. The expense of building E85 
infrastmcture is sometimes paid at the gas station’s expense, or split with the fuel supplier on 
die contingency of selling only their fuel at the pump. Most E85 infrastmctures are 
concentrated in the Midwest because proximity to the ethanol cuts down on transportation. 
But if trash-based ethanol becomes successful, it would open the door for ethanol production 
in all comers of the nation — and on a year-round basis. [ read more ...

Subject: WVU report on LDV diesel PEMS testing 
Date: May 28, 2014 1:45:25 PM EOT 
To: 


Ex. 7 



Attached is WVU's final report on the 3 LDV diesel vehicles they tested, using PEMS. 
It hasn't been released yet, so please keep it within VW for the time being, but I 
thought you would appreciate a heads-up. It should be released publicly soon, 
although we do not intend to make a big press release out of the report. We plan on 
posting it on our website and letting it go into our RSS feed, but nothing more — no 
publication announcement, no blogs, no twittering. 

We have been discussing internally why the VW vehicles had such high emissions in- 
use. One thought was that in-use driving had higher loads and, thus, might be 
exceeding the capacity of the NOx control systems or the systems might not be 
calibrated as well at higher loads. However, the US06 test results for NOx at CARB 
were much lower than the in-use highway route (#1) used for the PEMS testing, even 
though the acceleration rates (Figure 3.12 in the report) and the C02 emissions were 
much higher on the US06 than on the in-use highway route. In addition, the in-use 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012729 











urban routes (#2- LA, #4-SD, #5-SF) had NOx emissions 2-3 times higher than the in- 
use highway route. 

Another thought is that the catalyst might not be getting hot enough to work properly 
in-use, similar to the in-use HD diesel NOx issue. The problem I have with this theory 
is that NOx emissions over NEDC testing at CARD were quite low. 

The following table compares the chassis dyno test data from the CARB logs (FTP, 
NEDC, US06) with the WVU PEMS results from Tables 4.3 and 4.6 of the report: 

<PastedGraphic-2.pdf> 

The NEDC includes a cold start (in fact, the cold start is weighted about 2.5 times 
higher than the cold start on the FTP, which likely explains the higher emissions on 
NEDC versus FTP). Figure 3.6 in the WVU report suggests that the NEDC has similar 
idle time and vehicle speeds to the in-use urban routes driven by WVU. Figure 3.12 
suggests that acceleration rates were lower on the NEDC than for the in-use urban 
routes driven by WVU. Plus, the in-use urban routes were driven with about 10% 
higher vehicle weight, due to the weight of the PEMS system. The higher weight, 
higher acceleration rates, and lack of a cold start all should have generated higher 
catalyst temperatures on the in-use routes than on the NEDC. So, the data doesn't 
seem to support this theory either. 

There is a potential issue with higher than expected C02 emissions on the in-use urban 
routes, even after accounting for the increased weight. We do not know what caused 
this. 

Anyway, we would appreciate it if you could share any insights with us on why the 
NOx emissions were so high in-use.

EPA proposes rule to slash power plant carbon by 30%

06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012735 




U.S. EPA unveiled a long-awaited proposal today that would slash carbon dioxide from existing power 
plants by 30 percent by 2030. 


The proposal , a cornerstone of President Obama's Climate Action Plan, would curb emissions from a 
sector responsible for 40 percent of U.S. C02. 

A fact sheet accompanying the proposal adds that it will curb other pollutants including lead and soot by 
more than 25 percent in the same years. 

In a taped address over the weekend, Obama said the new regulations would prevent up to 100,000 
asthma attacks and 2,100 heart attacks in their first year being implemented. 

"And those numbers will go up from there," he said. 

The restrictions have already drawn fire from congressional Republicans and industry leaders who have 
promised to fight any rule they deem burdensome to the fossil fuels and utility sectors. Environmentalists 
who have sought for years to limit emissions linked to climate change have pledged to defend - and, in 
some cases, strengthen - the proposal.

States divided, wary as rule release draws near 

Jean Chemnick, E&E reporter 
Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 

The planned release Monday of U.S. EPA's proposal for slashing heat-trapping emissions from existing 
power plants will shine a spotlight on how states will meet its mandate. 

It's going to be complicated. 

There's no single starting line. Where a state begins will depend on its politics and power supply. And 
every one of them is concerned that the coming rule won't fully protect its interests. 

Opponents of the rule this week said it could hamstring some states. 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce sounded the alarm with a report emphasizing the rule's potential costs 
for states that depend heavily on fossil fuel-fired power plants. Prepared for the chamber's Institute for 
21st Century Energy by IMS, the report used the business group's assumptions about the rule and future 
power demands to show that its costs would fall heavily on states with the most coal-fired generation. 

The Southeastern states stand to lose 60,000 jobs and $10.5 billion in economic development every year 
through 2030 from the combined effects of EPA's rules for existing and new power plants, the report 
warned. The Upper Midwest's power market - more evenly divided between coal and gas - would lose 
nearly 32,000 jobs and take an economic hit of $7.4 billion each year, while lowest-carbon markets in 
New England and on the West Coast would be the best-positioned to meet the standards, it said. 

And the National Republican Senatorial Committee quickly moved to tie Senate Democrats running for re- 
election this fail - notably. Sens. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark 
Udall of Colorado - to regulations that it said would penalize their states.

"Senate battleground states are largely coal-intensive states, which makes President Obama's upcoming 
EPA announcement even more important," the NRSC said in a blog post this week. "These states will be 
particularly hard hit by the rate spike that will come from the Obama Administration's cap-and-trade fiat." 


Texas' congressional delegation, meanwhile, wrote a letter to EPA this week, charging that the Lone Star 
state's growing population and electricity demand could make it particularly vulnerable to the coming 
rulemakings. 

"With a robust manufacturing base, and as the leading producer of oil, gas and petrochemical products, 
our state is an economic engine for the entire nation," stated the letter, signed by lawmakers of both 
parties. "Given such growth and potential, EPA should recognize that Texans require an all-of-the-above 
approach to power generation, not one that will raise the cost of electricity by selectively eliminating 
certain types of fossil fuels." 

That's a message state lawmakers from Georgia, Nebraska and Kentucky tried to deliver yesterday to 
EPA's Washington, D.C., headquarters, but they failed to make an appointment and they say no one was 
available to meet with them. 



On E&ETV's The Cutting Edge, reporter Jean Chemnick previewed the Obama administration's scheduled Monday 
rollout of carbon regulations for existing power plants. Click here to watch The Cutting Edge. 

The delegation - organized by the fossil fuels advocacy group Partnership for Affordable Clean Energy 
(PACE) - says its members' constituents stand to lose from the rules, especially if EPA moves to require 
"systemwide" reductions from sources like demand-side energy efficiency and more renewable energy 
use. 

Kentucky state Sen. Brandon Smith (R) told reporters he was wary of EPA "superimposing their judgment 
over what we think is good for the state." 

Kentucky, a major mining state, derives about 90 percent of its power from coal. A minor shift toward 
natural gas is occurring, but Smith and his Democratic colleague, state Sen. Fitz Steele, said coal-mine 
closures were due at least in part to EPA regulations already on the books. Those, he said, had also 
affected other aspects of the Kentucky economy. 

"They need to quit trying to run our state," said Steele, a coal miner himself for more than two decades. 
"They're trying to micromanage our states. They're coming in to tell us what's best for us." 

Steele and Smith said EPA must respect states' "primacy" - their right to determine how their utilities will 
be regulated under the Clean Air Act rule. EPA has said repeatedly that states are its partners in the 
rulemaking and that its guidance to them will be "flexible." It is expected to set standards, and states must 
write implementation plans.

But Lance Brown, PACE's executive director, said that by setting a standard for emissions reduction that 
can oniy be achieved through the use of certain technoiogies or policies, EPA would limit states' options. 

"EPA has the ability to be very prescriptive without being prescriptive," he said. 

'Measured, reasonable steps' 

Several states have considered legislation they hope would limit the EPA rule's effect on their utility 
sector. 

Nebraska -- a coal state that is also a hub for railroads that carry the fuel -- enacted such a measure last 
month by a wide margin. 

"What we're asking is to take measured, reasonable steps in regulations addressing emissions," said 
Nebraska state Sen. Jim Smith (R), a participant in yesterday's fly-in. 

While Nebraska is weighing renewable energy and efficiency mandates, he said, "we don't want to 
sacrifice our economy and sacrifice jobs to get there." 

But environmentalists emphasize that while EPA has been accommodating to states, it is authorized to 
issue binding guidelines and to approve or reject state plans. 

If states do not submit plans that are acceptable, they say, EPA might be compelled to step in with a less 
flexible federal plan that would be more onerous than a state plan would have been. 

Aliya Haq, special projects director for climate at the Natural Resources Defense Council, said that most 
of these bills either failed or were weakened because state lawmakers recognized that they would "paint 
utilities into a corner." 

"By trying to prevent flexible and clean alternatives to coal, these bills would have made it more difficult 
and expensive to cut carbon pollution," she said. 

In comments submitted to EPA ahead of next week's release, fossil fuels-heavy states have asked the 
agency to confine its rule to minor heat-rate improvements that can be achieved inside the fence line of 
an individual power plant. They also want credit for reductions made since 2005 - even those driven by 
market conditions - and worry that EPA might go back on its promise to not require carbon capture and 
storage for existing plants. 

But the World Resources Institute released its own analysis this week showing that 10 of the states 
situated in power markets that the chamber and others deemed to be in the greatest peril of price spikes 
from the EPA rule comply with even a relatively stringent, "beyond the fence line" rule of the kind 
environmentalists have urged EPA to adopt. 

North Carolina could achieve reductions through its Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio 
Standard, which is already in place, WRI argued. It could also boost the efficiency of its coal-fired power 
plants and use its gas plants more. 

The Tennessee Valley Authority, Tennessee's largest utility, already offers demand-side efficiency 
programs, WRI said. 

"If Tennessee commits to achieving 1 percent annual energy savings, Tennessee could reduce C02

emissions by 10 percent in 2020 compared to 2011 ieveis," the institute says. 


Said David Doniger, director of the ciimate and clean air program at NRDC: "We think almost every state 
has to do something. Some states had planned to do it already." 

Opportunity seen for late-moving states 

But while the nine Northeastern states in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative might be able to 
demonstrate that their existing policies are equivalent to what would be required by ERA, others may 
need to launch new initiatives. 

Doniger said states that have not yet moved to cut carbon may have built-in advantages compared with 
states that have already plucked their proverbial "low-hanging fruit" of efficiency and renewable energy. 

"The states that haven't done any of these things have opportunities that the states that have done them 
don't have," he said. "A state that hasn't built up renewables or an efficiency program has a very cheap 
pathway in front of it." 

States that have already taken significant steps to slash carbon, meanwhile, have urged ERA to adopt a 
rule that would require other states to achieve similar reductions even if it takes them additional time to 
get there. In a letter to ERA last December, 15 early-mover states, including the RGGI members and 
California, asked the agency to propose a rule that takes into account past progress to curb emissions. 

ERA should consider setting an emissions intensity target that would require all states to meet the same 
standard on a per-kilowatt basis - ensuring that early movers would get full credit for their work. 

They also asked for a rule that requires reductions across the power system, and not for the "inside the 
fence line" standard sought by their more fossil fuels-heavy counterparts. 

Vicki Arroyo, executive director of the Georgetown Climate Center, has worked with the early movers to 
help formulate their stances on the rule. In an interview yesterday, she said their experience with carbon 
cutting and renewable energy and efficiency policies had shown them that a systemwide approach could 
be cost-effective. 

"I think as far as the level of this standard, they would certainly want it to be something that reflects the 
ambition of some of these previous programs," she said. 

States that have shaved double-digit percentages of carbon from their power-sector emissions in the last 
few years would not want other states to have virtually no obligations, she said. 

"I think it's a lost opportunity for some of these cost-effective reductions," she said.

term climate change agenda: U.S. EPA's proposal to curb power plant carbon dioxide emissions. 


The president will be traveling in Europe but plans to participate in a call hosted by the American Lung 
Association and other health and medical organizations to emphasize why reducing C02 emissions can 
help safeguard human health. 

"We're excited to hear firsthand from the president about the proposal, and understand the public health 
benefits that are associated with it," said Paul Billings, vice president of national policy and advocacy for 
ALA. 

While few details have been provided about the rule still at the White House ahead of Monday's release, 
Billings said the link between climate change and respiratory health is clear. Warmer temperatures mean 
more asthma-causing smog, he said. Furthermore, he said, by requiring power plants to limit their C02 
emissions, EPA will also encourage the reduction of sulfur dioxide emissions, nitrogen oxides and other 
pollutants that contribute to ozone. 

The president will also make climate change the focus of his weekly address on Saturday, before 
departing for a trip that includes a visit to Poland - a nation heavily dependent on coal-fired generation. 

The ALA call will come after EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy holds a news conference unveiling the 
proposal, which will curb emissions from currently operating plants. 

Democratic House leaders were among the first to be briefed on the proposal. White House adviser John 
Podesta yesterday met with several Democrats in the office of Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). 

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), who participated in the meeting, said that it took "a 30,000-foot" view, with 
few details about what is in the actual proposal. 

While he was in the room, Connolly said, much of the discussion focused on the economic effects of the 
proposal - which has been painted as a potential job-killer by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other 
opponents. 

But Connolly said Virginia's shift toward natural gas for generation had actually reduced power costs. 

"Certainly in my home state, they've gone down, not up," he said. Many utilities have already taken steps 
to limit C02 and other emissions in recent years, and a report released earlier this week showed the 
sector had shed 13 percent of its greenhouse gas output between 2008 and 2012. Historically coal-heavy 
utilities like Duke Energy Corp. and Southern Co. were among the leaders in reducing their emissions, 
according to the report. 

The EPA proposal may be the added push utilities need to make further reductions, said Connolly. 

The report came as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pledged to renew his push to limit 
ERA’S climate change rules through new legislation. McConnell’s bid to use the Congressional Review 
Act to strike down EPA’s new power plant proposal for C02 ended yesterday when the Government 
Accountability Office ruled that draft rules do not meet the law’s criteria. 

Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Caiif.) noted that the House has already voted numerous times to curtail EPA’s 
climate rules, but all of those efforts have fallen short in the Senate. But having watched Republicans vote 
50 times to kill Obama’s healthcare reform law, the Energy and Commerce Committee ranking member 
said GOP members might do the same with these rules. But they won’t succeed, he said. 

“We’re not talking about successful efforts to change the Clean Air Act or stop these rules,” he said.

AIR POLLUTION: 

Court rejects EPA guidance on aggregate 'major source' permitting 

Jeremy P. Jacobs, E&E reporter 
Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 

An appeals court vacated a U.S. EPA guidance on determining whether to combine multiple, adjacent air 
pollution sources for permitting. 

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit held EPA cannot treat pollution sources in 
one region differently from those in others because of an adversarial court ruling. 

At issue is EPA's response to a 2012 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in Summit Petroieum Corp. 
V. EPA. The court held that EPA couldn't aggregate certain pollution sources -- in that case, naturai gas 
wells and a refinery -- that were not geographically adjacent into a single stationary source for permitting 
under the Clean Air Act. 

After the ruling, EPA in December 2012 issued a "summit directive" to its regional offices saying the 
agency could no longer consider functional "interrelationships" within the 6th Circuit in establishing "major 
sources" that require permits that specify emission limits, monitoring mandates and other requirements. 

Outside the 6th Circuit states -- Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee -- EPA said its policy would 
remain the same. 

An industry coalition, the National Environmental Development Association's Clean Air Project, 
challenged the guidance. It claimed the document put companies outside the 6th Circuit at a competitive 
disadvantage because they face more stringent permitting requirements. 

EPA contended the coalition lacked standing, meaning it failed to show how it was directly harmed by the 
guidance memo. Further, the agency said the challengers failed to raise a concrete issue and that the 
Clean Air Act didn't require EPA to act uniformly across the country in its permitting program. 

The D.C. Circuit rejected EPA's contentions. 

"We find no merit in EPA's arguments," Senior Judge Harry Edwards wrote. "The Summit Directive 
creates a standard that gives facilities located in the Sixth Circuit a competitive advantage. It therefore 
causes competitive injury to Petitioner's members located outside the Sixth Circuit." 

Further, Edwards, a Democratic appointee, wrote on behalf of the unanimous three-judge panel that the 
memo is "plainly contrary to EPA's own regulations, which require EPA to maintain national uniformity in 
measures implementing" the Clean Air Act.

Former EPA official joins transportation council board 

Sean Reilly, E&E reporter 
Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 

Former EPA official Margo Oge has joined the board of the International Council on Clean Transportation, 
the nonprofit research organization announced yesterday. 

Oge, who retired in 2012 after more than 30 years with EPA, headed its Office of Transportation and Air 
Quality for the final 18 years of her career. In that post, she was a key figure in crafting the Obama 
administration's fuel economy standards that will require the average light-duty vehicle to get 54.5 mpg by 
2025. 

"I'm very pleased that Margo agreed to join us," Dan Greenbaum, chairman of the council's board, said in 
a news release. "The policies she spearheaded at EPA are among the most significant steps forward in 
clean transportation, and she will bring the same passion and skill to the ICCT." 

Since her retirement, Oge has been a visiting scholar at the Washington, D.C.-based council, which 
describes its work as furnishing unbiased research and analysis to environmental regulators, according to 
her Linkedin profile. She also serves as vice chairwoman of the board at DeltaWing Technologies, a 
Georgia firm, and is on the National Academies' Board on Energy and Environmental Systems, the profile 
indicates.

Consumer Reports finds Honda hybrid doesn't iive up to iabei 

Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 

Honda Motor Co.'s 2014 gas-electric hybrid Accord failed to reach its window-sticker average in 
Consumer Reports' road test, though the car still rated as the most fuel-efficient U.S. midsize sedan. 

The $29,155 car averaged 40 mpg when driven in a combination of highway and city driving, the 
magazine said in a statement yesterday, but failed to reach the 47 mpg advertized on the U.S. EPA 
window sticker rating for city/highway driving. 

"We've found that the EPA tests often exaggerate the fuel economy of hybrids," said Jake Fisher, 
Consumer Reports' director of automotive testing. 

Honda's hybrid also had cabin noise issues, less ride comfort and worse emergency handling than the 4- 
cylinder-engine gasoline version, the magazine said. 

It's not the first hybrid to fail the road test; the magazine found major shortfalls in the fuel economy of 
Ford Motor Co.'s Fusion and C-Max hybrids in 2012. 

"We're very happy to see that in Consumer Reports' testing, they confirmed that its 40 miles per gallon 
average ranks it as the most fuel-efficient four-door midsize sedan that they've measured in at least the 
last 10 years," Honda spokesman Chris Martin said. "Actual Accord Hybrid owners have reported even 
better mileage in their reai-worid experiences" (Alan Ohnsman, Bloomberg . May 29). -- JL

Tesla plans first Va. dealership in Tysons Corner 

Published: Friday, May 30, 2014 

After a legal compromise last year settled a thorny dispute with Virginia, Tesla Motors Inc. plans to open 
its first electric car dealership in the state near Washington Dulies International Airport. 

The California automaker sued the state after the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles rejected its 
license application to open a company-owned dealership. Virginia is among several states, also including 
New Jersey, Ohio, Missouri and Arizona, where Tesia has been fighting against rules requiring cars to be 
sold through authorized franchisees. 

The company, state and the Virginia Automobile Dealers Association reached a deal last fall, however, 
allowing Tesla a single license in Northern Virginia if it agreed to withdraw the suit. 

Yesterday, a prominent developer in the Tysons Corner area submitted zoning plans to turn a warehouse 
into a venue for vehicle sales. The project is being designed by the same architectural firm that designed 
Tesla's Los Angeles showroom. The developer, the Georgelas Group, declined to comment. 

No hearing before the Fairfax County Planning Commission has been scheduled (Jonathan O'Connell,

Subject/WGroup - Problem with VERIFY engine configuration re-numbering. 


HellOjEx 4-CBlj, 


We have found an issue with VERIFY which is causing errors in test group data during load of the XML 
for updates or corrections. 

The issue is that the form quietly removes existing engine configuration values in the Test Group form 
when loading an XML, and replaces with new numbers matching the input sequence. This small change 
can cause significant headaches when doing fuel economy labeling which relies on the engine 
configuration value. 

Steps to Reproduce Engine configuration ordering problem which can occur when a correction is made to 
an engine configuration in a test group data set: 

1) From VERIFY, request test group report for FVGAV02.0APA and save file. 

2) Open XML with text editor and note the ordering of the 3 repeating EngineConfigurationDetails: 

a. First in sequence: 211HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 3 

b. Second in sequence: 170HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 1 

c. Third: 220HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 2 

d. Note that these elements come out of VERIFY “out of sequence” 3,1,2 ... but since the 
engconfig# value tags are associated, this should not really be a problem. 

3) Re-Open file in VERIFY form. Note that the original configuration numbers have been disposed 
and that the 3 entries are now re-numbered to match their sequential order, rather than the engine 

configuration number: 

a. First in sequence: 211 HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 1 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012753 





b. Second in sequence: 170HP with EngineConfigurationNumber =2 

c. Third: 220HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 3 

d. Note that this scrambles the original engineconfiguration number which was associated with 
each engine. 

e. A save can be done to confirm that the values above are now stored in the XML file. 

Please let us know if you can reproduce this issue. We are hoping that it is possible to correct this soon. 
Please advise.

Mike

SubjectVWGroup - Problem with VERIFY engine configuration re-numbering. 


HelloiEx. 6 


We have found an issue with VERIFY which is causing errors in test group data during load of the XML 
for updates or corrections. 

The issue is that the form quietly removes existing engine configuration values in the Test Group form 
when loading an XML, and replaces with new numbers matching the input sequence. This small change 
can cause significant headaches when doing fuel economy labeling which relies on the engine 
configuration value. 

Steps to Reproduce Engine configuration ordering problem which can occur when a correction is made to 
an engine configuration in a test group data set: 

1) From VERIFY, request test group report for FVGAV02.0APA and save file. 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012757 







2) Open XML with text editor and note the ordering of the 3 repeating EngineConfigurationDetaiis: 

a. First in sequence: 211HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 3 

b. Second in sequence: 170HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 1 

c. Third: 220HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 2 

d. Note that these elements come out of VERIFY “out of sequence” 3,1,2 ... but since the 
engconfig# value tags are associated, this should not really be a problem. 

3) Re-Open file in VERIFY form. Note that the original configuration numbers have been disposed 
and that the 3 entries are now re-numbered to match their sequential order, rather than the engine 

configuration number: 

a. First in sequence: 211 HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 1 

b. Second in sequence: 170HP with EngineConfigurationNumber =2 

c. Third: 220HP with EngineConfigurationNumber = 3 

d. Note that this scrambles the original engineconfiguration number which was associated with 
each engine. 

e. A save can be done to confirm that the values above are now stored in the XML file. 

Please let us know if you can reproduce this issue. We are hoping that it is possible to correct this soon. 
Please advise. 

Regards, 

Mike

Richard, 


I’m in the process of running an updated 2015 FE Guide and sending the data to DOE. 


I’ll just send to DOE whatever data is in Verify (error free) and releasable. The query will be run 
in the next few minutes. I’ll send it to DOE later today or tomorrow.

Hi Dave; 


I just completed five 2015 labels for the carry over 2.0L automatic quattro models, index 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012759 



numbers 064 through 068, into Verify. These models are on the ship to the US and we expect to 
have a rolling release of these models once they arrive here next week. Label indexes 064, 065 
and 066, are carried over but of course the projected volumes are changed so that the sales 
weighted unrounded numbers are now slightly different. I would like to be sure that there are no 
rounding errors for these labels as I expect the values will go on Monroney labels next week. 


We also have the 3.0L supercharged V6 gasoline models that will be arriving of the same ships. 
We just spoke to Jim who said he would put the Audi 3.0L V6 test group FVGAJ03.0AUD on 
the top of his list for issuance of the certificate. I cannot enter labels into Verify until we have a 
certificate issued. This test group contains nine model type labels that also have to be 
completed, with the exception of the Audi SQ5 where we have new data. All the other specific 
model type labels (eight) are carried over. 


I don’t know your schedule for the audit of labels, but could you let me know if you prefer to 
have all these new 2015 labels together or could you look at only the index 064-066 labels now? 


If you have time you can give me a call to discuss. 


Thanks, 

Richard

Transaction Id: 4f47478a-53db-45bd-a48d-fc9460c45612 


When you reload the “Report” file from this transaction to the Verify CDX\Test Group screen it 
re-numbers engine configuration numbers and ignores existing xml tags. This poses a problem 
when making updates or corrections from previous xml Report files as we do often. 

Note - The engine configuration number is used by the fuel economy program and drives the 
engine descriptions on the EPA fuel economy guide wehsite. When configuration numbers 
change from what was first input and labelled, it potentially creates erroneous model/engine 
descriptions online.

complex than ever before, 
but supply chains are 
stretched, consumers are

plant in Louisiana and a Peugeot plant in Europe, according to a 
Congressional Research Service study. Learn More

fueled models? For example; in Verify there are three FE label calculation approaches for 
gasoline or diesel models, the other choices are related to BEV and PHEV, but this choice is 
only presented once. When we do a FFV label we have both a gasoline calculation and an E85 
calculation per index. It would seem to me that this would not allow the use of a 5-cycle 
approach for gasoline and a derived 5-cycle approach for E85 within the same index. Is that the 
intent, or am I missing something? 


Thanks, 

Richard

FVGAR0140AAD, on page 4 of the Appilcation pdf it shows the evap test vehicle as D3UF-

Will, I mentioned that VW had some questions about PHEVs and BEVs. I noticed this later 
note that they did talk to Rob and were revising their list of questions. I haven’t heard back 
since that but here is their initial handout.

Hello Jim, 


This might circle back to you. I did not get a response back from Line and Dave, so we would 

still like to set up a meeting sometime soon to discuss our open questions. We did get some 
clarifying information from Rob French last week and my colleagues in Germany are revising the 
presentation accordingly. We will get back to you when you are back in the office next week. I 
will be traveling next week but I expect you may get contact from one of us. 


Thank you and best regards.

Hello Jim, 


The VW Group would like to schedule a meeting (or conference call) with EPA staff and VW 

certification staff to discuss PHEV and BEV certification. There are still some questions we 
have regarding PHEV calculations and testing we would like to discuss with you. In advance of

Is there a time that works best for you? My proposal is to have the meeting early next week if 
that is possible for EPA staff. I understand you may want to discuss our questions internally 

first.

Richard, 


re: 2015 FE Guide - Errors in EPA's data base as of June 4, 2014 


Attached are the data in Verify as of June 4, 2014. Labels with pea green fill in the first few columns 
have errors which need to be corrected before I can have the data posted on www.fueleconomv.Qov . 

The errors are also highlighted in yellow fill in the column where the error occurred. [Note that the 
method our macro uses for calculating voluntarily increased C02 values is outlined in section 10.1 of CD- 
13-11—(if the macro flagged any errors in voluntarily increased C02 values).] 


The next normal posting of 2015 FE Label data will be on June 9, 2014 (on a monthly schedule where I 
run the query on the 1®*, 9*'’,15* and 23rd of the month) and send the data to DOE for posting on that day 
(or a day later). 


Please make any needed corrections to Verify when you get a chance. 


Thanks 


Dave

Richard, 


re: 2015 FE Guide - Errors in EPA's data base as of June 4, 2014 


Attached are the data in Verify as of June 4, 2014. Labels with pea green fill in the first few columns 
have errors which need to be corrected before I can have the data posted on www.fueleconomv.aov . 

The errors are also highlighted in yellow fill in the column where the error occurred. [Note that the 
method our macro uses for calculating voluntarily increased C02 values is outlined in section 10.1 of CD- 
13-11—(if the macro flagged any errors in voluntarily increased C02 values).] 


The next normal posting of 2015 FE Label data will be on June 9, 2014 (on a monthly schedule where I 
run the query on the 1®*, 9^,15*'" and 23rd of the month) and send the data to DOE for posting on that day 
(or a day later).

Hi Dave; 


I just completed five 2015 labels for the earry over 2.0L automatie quattro models, index 
numbers 064 through 068, into Verify. These models are on the ship to the US and we expect to 
have a rolling release of these models once they arrive here next week. Label indexes 064, 065 
and 066, are carried over but of course the projected volumes are changed so that the sales 
weighted unrounded numbers are now slightly different. I would like to be sure that there are no 
rounding errors for these labels as I expect the values will go on Monroney labels next week. 


We also have the 3.0L supereharged V6 gasoline models that will be arriving of the same ships. 
We just spoke to Jim who said he would put the Audi 3.0L V6 test group FVGAJ03.0AUD on 
the top of his list for issuance of the certificate. I cannot enter labels into Verify until we have a 
certificate issued. This test group contains nine model type labels that also have to be 
completed, with the exception of the Audi SQ5 where we have new data. All the other specific 
model type labels (eight) are carried over. 


I don’t know your sehedule for the audit of labels, but eould you let me know if you prefer to 
have all these new 2015 labels together or could you look at only the index 064-066 labels now? 


If you have time you ean give me a eall to diseuss.

The SCR Stakeholder Group (formerly called the Urea Stakeholder Group) is made up of industries, 
organizations and companies interested in urea for mobile source applications. 


Participants include: 

- Government (US Department of Energy, EPA) 

- Automotive and heavy-duty engine and truck manufacturer trade associations 

- Fuel retailer and truck stop trade associations 

- Oil companies 

- Urea distributors 

- Petroleum dispenser manufacturers and associations 
The main objectives of the SCR Stakeholder Group are: 

• To exchange information with US government and other potential urea stakeholders on the 
potential market and need for urea availability. 

• To consider effective education and outreach to consumers and commercial concerns about urea, 
its use and availability. 

• To engage potential providers of urea availability to determine the conditions necessary for 
provision of retail availability before a profitable market exists. 


If you have any questions concerning the SCR Stakeholder Group or the meeting, please call me at (248) 
915-8836. 

Sincerely, 

Giedrius Ambrozaitis 
Director, Environmental Affairs 
Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers

Having accompiished so much together, i am excited to join the Air Resources Board team to iead the

strong position in faciiitating a successful FCEV launch and market growth, and I am eager to contribute 
to this leadership. 

Serving as Executive Director of the California Fuel Ceil Partnership has been an honor and a privilege. 
CaFCP members have shown the true spirit of collaboration by striving for the common good of the 
industry and our cause, even at times over the immediate needs of your individual organizations. This has 
been evident in everything from planning road rallies and ride and drives to defining the necessary early 
market hydrogen station network. Collaboration is essential to making real, significant change in our 
world, and I’m thrilled to have been part of it. 

Together CaFCP members and staff have seen many changes over 15 years, and CaFCP will continue to 
evolve to meet members’ needs. I look forward to working side by side with you to define our future and 
support the transition to a new executive director. I plan to remain engaged with CaFCP projects, 
activities and goals after I assume my new position on August 1st. I am as committed as ever to seeing 
CaFCP succeed, and I look forward to our ongoing partnership. 

Thank you so much for your trust and commitment!

Subject: FFV Manufacturer Guidance for Review- Comments Requested by 6/11 


Hi all - 


Attaehed for review is a draft of the final manufaeturer guidanee establishing an FFV weighting 
factor (F factor) for MYs 2016-2018. Our understanding is that the goal is to finalize the 
guidance at the same time RFS 2014 is finalized. The weighting factor is based on direction 
from the last briefing. We are basing the F factor exclusively on AEO 2014 projections, resulting 
in an F factor of 0.14. We used an approach for the final technical document (attached to the 
guidance letter) where we respond to relevant comments within the document rather than have a 
separate response to comments document. The discussion is set up similar to a preamble: this is 
what we did in the draft analysis, this is what commenters said, and this is what we are doing in 
the final analysis. Therefore, you will see the “draft guidance” discussed within the context of 


VW FOIA, EPA

what we are doing for the final. I am also attaching a compare version which shows changes 
from the March 2013 draft manufacturer guidance for reference. 


As with the draft guidance, ASD has the lead in drafting the technical document and CD has the 
lead for finalizing the manufacturer guidance letter, distribution, web, etc. 


Paul, you will see a few sections flagged in particular for your review. 


Please provide comments by 6/11, if possible. We are planning to send a draft to NHTSA for 
review on 6/13.

Guidance Letter 
June B, 2014 


E85 Flexible Fuel Vehicle Weighting Factor for Model Year 2016-2018 Vehicles 

Under EPA’s light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas (GHG) program, starting with the 2016 
model year, the regulations describe two pathways for determining the GHG value for a gasoline- 
E85 flexible fuel vehicle (FFV). The default approach is to use the value determined for 
operation on gasoline (see 40 CFR 600.510-12(j)(2)(vi)). The alternative is to combine the 
gasoline and E85 GHG values together in a way that accounts for the real-world use of E85 with 
a weighting factor (this weighting factor is described as “F” in the regulations (see 40 CFR 
600.510-12(j)(2)(vi) and (k)). 

The regulations describe two different approaches that may be used to determine the value of 
F. First, upon written request from a manufacturer, EPA “will determine and publish by written 
guidance an appropriate value of F for each requested alternative fuel based on the 
Administrator’s assessment of real-world use of the alternative fuel” (see 40 CFR 600.510- 
12(k)(l)).^ Second, a manufacturer may submit its own data to EPA that demonstrates the real- 
world use of the alternative fuel and determines an appropriate value of F specific to its vehicles 
(see 40 CFR 600.510-12(k)(2)). 

Several manufacturers have requested that EPA expeditiously determine and publish a value 
of F for E85 to apply beginning with model year 2016 FFVs. EPA released a draft guidance 
document in March 2013, followed by an opportunity for public comment. Based on EPA’s 
analysis following the comment period, EPA is issuing this guidance with respect to E 85 
alternative fuel as directed by 40 CFR 600.510-12(k)(l). 

For the 2016-2018 model years, manufacturers of E85 - flieled FFVs may use F=0.14 in the 
calculation described in 40 CFR 600.510-12(i)(2)(vi). This is optional; manufacturers may 
continue to use the default value of F=0, thus not taking account of the E85 carbon-related 
exhaust emissions (CREE) value (or they may determine and seek approval for their own 
manufacturer-specific F factor, as described above). Manufacturers may continue to use F=0.14 
through the 2018 model year, unless EPA revises the weighting factor. EPA will establish a 
value of F for model years 2019 and later in future guidance. The derivation of F=0.14 is 
described in the attachment to this letter, which includes a review of public comments received 
on the draft guidance. The 0.14 F factor may not be used beyond the 2018 model year. 

The equation using the F factor is described in 40 CFR 600.510-12(j)(2)(vi) as follows: 


' Although the regulations prescribe use of notice-and-comment procedures, EPA’s 
determination is a factual adjudication of an appropriate F factor of appropriate duration. 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012894 










where CREEait is the CREE value calculated for the model type using the alternative fuel (in this 
case E85) and CREEgas is the CREE value calculated for the model type while operating on 
gasoline. For example, for an FFV emitting 330 g/mi CREE when tested on E85 and 350 g/mile 
CREE when tested on conventional gasoline, the CREE value for the FFV model type that would 
be used in the fleet average calculations under 600.510-12 would be calculated as follows: 


There are several important things to note for manufacturers electing to use this F value: 

1. Do not apply a factor of 0.15 to the E85 CREE value before combining with the 
gasoline CREE value. The requirements to use a multiplier of 0.15 for purposes of the 
greenhouse gas emissions standards extend only through the 2015 model year (see 40 
CFR 600.510-12(i)(2)(iv) and (vi)). 

2. Manufacturers electing to use this F value must apply it to all of the gasoline-E85 
FFVs in its fleet for a given model year, regardless of the relative E85 and gasoline 
emission values. In other words, this value may not be used solely on FFVs where the 
E85 CREE value is lower than the gasoline CREE value. 

3. Manufacturers may choose to use either F=0.14 or F=0 on a model year by model 
year basis, but both values may not be used within a single model year. For example, 
using F=0.14 for the 2016 model year does not prevent a manufacturer from using F=0 
for 2017 model year vehicles, or vice versa. 

4. Manufacturers continue to retain the option of collecting their own data 
demonstrating the real-world use of E85 to be generally applicable to the manufacturer’s 
dual fuel fleet and requesting that EPA determine a unique F factor for the fleet, or for 
specific FFV model types and requesting that EPA determine a unique F factor for use in 
the equation for those model types (see 40 CFR 600.510-12(k)(2)). 

If you have any questions about this guidance, please contact your certification team 
representative.

1. Introduction 


This document provides the supporting analysis and rationale for the weighting factor being 
established by EPA under the light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas (GHG) program to be used to 
weight E85 flexible fuel vehicle (FFV) carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions when tested with both 
gasoline and E85 (a mixture of 85 percent ethanol and gasoline). EPA released a draft guidance 
document in March 2013, followed by an opportunity for public comment. The draft guidance 
included a weighting factor of 0.2. EPA is finalizing a weighting factor of 0.14 for MY 2016- 
2018 E85 flexible fuel vehicle (FFV) carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions for reasons discussed 
below. 

The draft 0.2 weighting factor was based on an analysis using a wide range of future projections 
including the Renewable Fuel Standards (RFS) mid level ethanol case and U.S. Energy 
Information Administration release of Annual Energy Outlook 2013 (AEO 2013) ethanol volume 
scenarios considered by EPA, aggressive E15 use and no E15 use scenarios, and three FFV sales 
projection scenarios. This resulted in a combination of 12 different scenarios. The draft 0.2 
factor represented an average value across this broad range of scenarios and was not based on 
any one primary scenario. EPA received 14 public comments including comments from 
representatives of the auto manufacturers, ethanol producers, and non-governmental 
organizations, as shown in the table below. After considering the comments and for reasons 
discussed below, EPA is finalizing a weighting factor of 0.14. The 0.14 weighting factor is 
based on a single scenario using total ethanol volume projections, ethanol blend scenarios, and 
FFV sales projections from the recently released Annual Energy Outlook 2014 (AEO 2014).^

Beginning in model year (MY) 2016, EPA’s light-duty vehicle GHG program no longer allows 
FFV credits, but instead the GHG compliance values of an FFV must be based on actual 
emissions performance of the FFV on both gasoline and the alternative fuel, weighted by the 
EPA’s assessment of the actual use of these fuels by the FFV. EPA is establishing this factor at 
a level of 0.14 for MY 2016-2018, based on EPA’s assessment of the projected average real 
world use of E85 over the lifetime of MY 2016 FFVs. The weighted CO 2 emissions level will be

used as the certification CO 2 level for individual MY 2016-2018 FFV models in determining the 
overall fleet average CO 2 emissions for the manufacturer’s MY 2016 fleet. This means EPA is 
projecting that 14 percent of a MY 2016-2018 FFV’s lifetime miles driven will be fueled on E85 
and 86 percent will be fueled on conventional gasoline. EPA is determining this weighting 
factor upon written request from auto manufacturers per the regulatory provisions contained in 
40 CFR Part 86 600.510-12(k)(l). These regulatory provisions were established as part of the 
rulemaking setting GHG and corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards for MY 2012- 
2016 light-duty vehicles.^ As discussed below, manufacturers may not use the 0.14 weighting 
factor beyond MY 2018. EPA plans in the next few years.to issue subsequent guidance to 
establish an F factor for MY 2019 and later based on updated information 
Section 2 of this document provides background information on how FFVs are treated in MYs 
2012-2015, why EPA is establishing the weighting factor for MY 2016-2018, and how it will be 
used in determining FFV CO 2 emissions levels for these model years. Section 2 also briefly 
discusses EPA’s plans for establishing weighting factors for MY 2019 and later. Section 3 
provides a comparison of EPA’s approach under the GHG program for MYs 2016 and later with 
that of the CAFE program for MY 2016 and later. Section 4 provides the analysis on which EPA 
is basing the 0.14 weighting factor, including a review of public comments. 


2. Treatment of Flexible Fueled Vehicles under the EPA Model Year 2012-2016 LD 
GHG Rule 

2.1. Background on Model Years 2012-2015 

As discussed in the MY 2012-2016 Final Rule, EPA allows FFV compliance values 
corresponding to the compliance values allowed by CAFE during the period from MYs 2012 to 
2015. These are commonly called FFV credits. Several manufacturers had already taken the 
availability of FFV credits into account in their near-term planning for CAFE and this reliance 
needed to be considered in assessing necessary lead time for the CO 2 standards. Manufacturers 
commented during the rulemaking that the credits are necessary in allowing them to transition to 
the new standards. EPA thus allowed these credits, in the near term, helping to provide adequate 
lead time for manufacturers to implement the new multi-year standards. This also helps to 
harmonize the GHG and the CAFE programs during these interim years.'* 

As under CAFE as required by EPCA,^ EPA bases MY 2012-2015 FFV CO 2 emissions on a 
50/50 weighting of the measured CO 2 emissions when the vehicle is tested on gasoline and with 
E85. This approach essentially assumes that over the life of the FFV, 50% of their operation is 
on the alternative fuel and 50% of the operation is on conventional fuel, resulting in CO 2 


’ 75 FR 25342, 25432-25434 (May 7,2010). The tailpipe GHG emissions used for compliance with the CO 2 
standards described in 40 CFR 86.1818 are the carbon-containing emissions (generally, CO 2 , hydrocarbons, and 
carbon monoxide), which are summed based on the carbon weight fraction of each component into a value described 
in the regulations as the “carbon-related exhaust emissions” (CREE). For simplicity, however, in this support 
document, we are using the term CO 2 instead of CREE, as CO 2 is more broadly understandable and makes up the 
vast majority of the total carbon emissions from vehicles, [should this say tailpipe emissions?] 

^ See 75 FR 25432 (May 7, 2010).

emissions that are based on an arithmetic average of alternative fuel and conventional fuel CO 2 
emissions. In addition, the measured CO 2 emissions on the alternative fuel are multiplied by a 
0.15 volumetric conversion factor. Through this mechanism a gallon of alternative fuel is 
deemed to contain 0.15 gallons of fuel. For example, for a flexible-fuel vehicle that emitted 330 
g/mi CO 2 operating on E85 and 350 g/mi CO 2 operating on gasoline, the resulting CO 2 level to 
be used in the manufacturer’s fleet average calculation would be; 

[(330x0.15) + 350l „ , . 

CO, = ^ = 199.8?/wz 

2 

For MYs 2012-2015, EPA also established FFV credit limits or caps equivalent to the credit caps 
established for CAFE under EPCA/EISA. The FFV credit caps for CAFE are 1.2 mpg for model 
years 2012-2014 and 1.0 mpg for model year 2015.® The CO 2 FFV credits limits for MY 2012- 
2015 are based on a manufacturer’s fleet-average performance. 

Both the 50/50 weighting and the use of the 0.15 volumetric conversion factor were an 
established part of the CAFE program prior to the MY 2012-2016 rulemaking. EPA understands 
that by using the CAFE approach — including the 0.15 factor — the CO 2 emissions value for the 
vehicle is calculated to be significantly lower than it actually would be otherwise, even if the 
vehicle were assumed to operate on the alternative fuel at all times. This represents a “credit” 
being provided to FFVs for MYs 2012-2015. 

In the MY 2012-2016 rule, for the longer term, EPA determined that there is adequate lead time 
to meet GHG standards without the use of FFV credits. Therefore, beginning in MY2016, the 
FFV credits as described above for MY2012-2015 (that is the assumed 50/50 usage of the 
gasoline/E85 and 0.15 factor described above) are no longer available for EPA’s GHG program. 
Rather, GHG compliance values will be based on actual emissions performance of the FFV on 
conventional and alternative fuels, weighted by the EPA’s assessment of the actual use of these 
fuels in the FFVs. The approach for MY 2016 and later is discussed in further detail below. 


2.2. Background on MY 2016 and Later 

For MY 2016 and later model years, EPA’s program treats FFVs similarly to conventional fueled 
vehicles in that FFV emissions will be based on measured CO 2 results from emissions testing on 
the fuels on which it operates. Also, in calculating the emissions performance of an FFV, 
manufacturers may base FFV emissions on vehicle testing based on the alternative fuel 
emissions if there is a demonstration that the alternative fuel is likely to actually be used in the 
vehicles. The default absent such a demonstration is that performance will be calculated 
assuming use only of conventional fuel. The manufacturer must estimate the ratio of operation 
that will be on the alternative fuel compared to the conventional fuel. As shown in the equation 
below, the ratio (F) will be used to weight the CO 2 emissions performance over the 2-cycle tests 
on the two fuels. The 0.15 conversion factor (discussed in previous section) will no longer be 
included in the CO 2 emissions calculation.

C02 = F X C02E85 + (1-F) X CO 2 E 0 


For example, for an FFV emitting 330 g/mi CO 2 when tested on E85 and 350 g/mile CO 2 when 
tested on conventional gasoline, with an estimated vehicle miles travelled (VMT) split of 14 
percent on E85 and 86 percent on gasoline, the CO 2 emissions for the FFV would be calculated 
as follows: 

CC >2 = (0.14 X 330) + (0.86 X 350) = 347 g/mi 

One option EPA finalized in the MY 2012-2016 rule is for EPA to establish the weighting factor 
based on a national average approach considering national E85 fuel use. The MY 2012-2016 
final mle provided that upon a manufacturer’s written request, EPA “will determine and publish 
by written guidance an appropriate value of F for each requested alternative fuel based on the 
Administrator’s assessment of real-world use of the alternative fuel,” where F is the weighting 
factor to be used to weight the CO 2 emissions of the FFV on gasoline and on the alternative fuel 
(a value of 0.14 in the above example).^ Manufacturers could then use the EPA-determined 
value along with their vehicle emissions test results demonstrating emissions on E85, which are 
typically lower, to determine the emissions compliance values for FFVs. 

The preamble to the MY 2012-2016 proposal and final rule discussed an approach where EPA 
would conduct an analysis of vehicle miles travelled (VMT) by year for all FFVs using its 
emissions inventory MOVES model.® Using the VMT ratios and the overall E85 sales, E85 
usage would be assigned to each vehicle. This method accounts for the VMT of new FFVs and 
FFVs already in the existing fleet using VMT data in the model and the EPA model would be 
used to determine the ratio of E85 and gasoline for new vehicles being sold. EPA noted that 
fluctuations in E85 sales and FFV sales would be taken into account to adjust the manufacturers’ 
E85 actual use estimates annually. EPA also noted that it planned to make the assigned fuel 
usage factor available through guidance prior to the start of MY 2016 and adjust it as necessary. 

In lieu of using EPA’s estimated fuel usage factor based on the national average analysis, 
manufacturers have a second option of presenting their own data for consideration as the basis 
for evaluating fuel usage. As specified in the regulations, “the manufacturer may optionally 
submit to the Administrator its own demonstration regarding the real-world use of the alternative 
fuel in their own vehicles and its own estimate of the appropriate value of F.”® Manufacturers 
must present a statistical analysis of alternative fuel usage data collected on actual vehicle 
operation. EPA did not attempt to specify how the data is collected or the amount of data 
needed. However, the analysis must be based on sound statistical methodology. Uncertainty in 
the analysis must be accounted for in a way that provides reasonable certainty that the program 
does not result in loss of emissions reductions.^® 

It is important to note that although the FFV weighting factor is needed prior to the end of MY 
2016 so that manufacturers may include it in their CO 2 fleet average calculations, the F factor

must be based on the projected use of the alternative fuel over the life of the MY 2016 vehicles. 
In a situation where the amount of alternative fuel being used and the sales of FFVs were stable, 
EPA could potentially base the weighting factor on an estimate of what the factor is for vehicles 
in-use today. Based on current limited usage of E85, the F factor would be near zero. However, 
both the amount of ethanol being used and the sales of FFVs are currently in a state of 
considerable change. Under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program, the amount of ethanol 
to be consumed is projected to increase significantly over the next several years. Also, the 
production of FFVs has increased steadily over the last several years and we expect some 
continued growth in sales. There is currently a great deal of uncertainty both in the amount of 
E85 that is likely to be consumed year by year and the number of FFVs that will be sold. For the 
draft guidance, to address this uncertainty for both FFV sales and E85 volumes, EPA evaluated a 
range of scenarios for both FFV sales and E85 volumes on which to base the weighting factor 
rather than a single or primary scenario. For this final guidance, EPA is basing the F factor 
primarily on AEO 2014 projections, as discussed in Section 4 below. 

The MY 2012-2016 nile discussed an approach where EPA would determine the weighting 
factor prior to the beginning of MY 2016 (which begins on January 2, 2015) and adjust it 
annually as necessary.^' In the MY 2017-2025 rule, automakers submitted comments requesting 
early guidance on the F factor so that automakers would have the relevant information needed 
for development of compliance plans. EPA believes that it is important to establish the 
weighting factor through MY 2018 now to provide manufacturers with as much lead time and 
certainty as possible for planning for MYs 2016-2018. In the MY 2017-2025 final rule, EPA 
reiterated its commitment to issue early guidance “well in advance” of each model year.^^ As 
discussed below, EPA plans to revisit the weighting factor for MY 2019. The 0.14 F factor may 
not be used beyond MY 2018. 

2.3. Potential Impact of the Weighting Factor 

The table below provides CO 2 results for a sample of MY 2013 FFV models. In many cases, 

CO 2 levels on E85 are in the range of 2 to 7 percent better than on conventional gasoline and it 
would be to the manufacturer’s advantage to weight in the lower emissions of the E85 
operation.For vehicles with CO 2 emissions in the 200-300 g/mile range and achieving a 5 to 
10 percent benefit on E85 (assuming manufacturers optimize CO 2 performance on E85) 
compared to conventional gasoline, using an E85 weighting factor of 0.14 would lower the 
vehicle’s CO 2 level by about 1-4 g/mile, depending on the vehicle’s CO 2 levels. 


" 75 FR 25434 (May 7, 2010). 

77 FR 62624, 62830 (October 15, 2012). 

Lower g/mile emissions on E85 are attributable to a number of factors, including the chemical makeup of the fuel 
and the efficiency of the engine while operating on this fuel.

As the data above indieate, there is a range of CO 2 performanee on E85 eompared to gasoline, 
and in a few cases FFV CO 2 emissions are worse on E85. Currently, because credits are 
calculated using a 0.15 factor (E85 CO 2 levels are multiplied by 0.15 in the calculation) and total 
credits are capped, there is not an incentive for manufacturers to optimize CO 2 emissions 
performance on E85. EPA believes that its approach for MY 2016 and later provides 
manufacturers with an incentive to optimize FFV emissions performance not only on gasoline 
but also on the alternative fuel. EPA also notes that manufacturers choosing to use a weighting 
factor in a given model year must use that weighting factor for the alternative fuel for all of their 
FFVs including any that have worse emissions performance on E85. Otherwise, the default is to 
base FFV emissions only on conventional gasoline. 


3. Comparison with CAFE Program Treatment of Flexible Fueled Vehicles for MY 
2016 and Later 

49 U.S.C. section 32905 specifies how the fuel economy of dual fuel vehicles, including E85 
FFVs, is to be calculated for the purposes of CAFE through the 2019 model year. In MY 2016 
and later under CAFE, manufacturers continue to calculate credits using a 50/50 harmonic 
average of the fuel economy for the alternative fuel and the conventional fuel, irrespective of 
actual usage of each fuel. In addition, the fuel economy value for the alternative fuel continues 
to be significantly increased by dividing it by 0.15.

In addition, as reqviired by 49 U.S.C. 32906, CAFE continues to include a cap on the increase in 
fleet average mpg from FFV credits for MYs 2016-2019, which decreases each year as shown in 
the table below. The cap applies separately for domestic passenger cars, import passenger cars, 
and light-duty trucks.

In the MY 2017-2025 CAFE rulemaking, a new approach for FFVs was established for model 
years 2020 and later.After MY 2019, CAFE will weight the FFV fuel economy on 
conventional gasoline and E85 in its harmonic average of the two values using the same real 
world weighting factor F that is used by manufacturers under the EPA program (rather than 
assuming a 50/50 weighting). This F factor would either be established by EPA or by the 
manufacturer under the process options described above (or zero if no factor is established). 
Weighting the fuel economy to better reflect real world usage is a major change from the 
approach mandated by 49 U.S.C. 32905 and it orients the calculation more to the real world 
impact on petroleum usage, consistent with the statute’s overarching purpose of petroleum 
conservation. The CAFE program retains the 0.15 divisor for MYs 2020 and later, whereas the 
GHG program does not include the 0.15 factor. Retaining the 0.15 divisor in CAFE for dual fuel 
vehicles is consistent with the procedures established by Congress for dedicated alternative fuel 
vehicles. As with the EPA program, there is no credit cap in the CAFE program for MY 2020 
and later under this new approach finalized in the MY 2017-2025 rule. 

EPA received comments from ICCT and ACEEE that an F factor of 0.2 could lead to very high 
uncapped credits under the CAFE program. The commenters are concerned that if the F factor is 
not based on actual use of the fuel, it could detract substantially from the efficacy of CAFE. 
While the F factor guidance would not apply to 2020 and later model years, the commenters are 
concerned about the implications of the precedent being set in the initial guidance. ACEEE 
noted that if an F factor of 0.2 is used in MY 2020, the CAFE credits for a vehicle with CO 2 
levels of 200-300 g/mile would be in the range of 5.5 to 8.2 g/mile. EPA understands these 
concerns and reiterates that the F factor being established in this guidance will only apply to 
EPA’s GHG program through MY 2018 and will not impact the CAFE program. An F factor 
established by EPA for MY 2019 and later will require future agency action that will include an 
opportunity for public comment. EPA does not view the guidance for MYs 2016-2018 as 
precedent setting. Determining an F factor is a fact-specific process, to be re-determined based 
on the facts available at the time EPA issues guidance. EPA will rigorously analyze available 
data concerning the trends in E85 fuel use and FFV sales in establishing an F factor for those 
later model years.

4. Analysis of E85 F Factor for MY 2016 Vehicles 

4.1. Analytic Methods 

There is significant uncertainty regarding projecting future ethanol use and FFV sales over the 
lifetime of MY 2016 vehicles. Thus, for the draft guidance we analyzed several possible 
scenarios. We considered four different factors in estimating national average consumption of 
E85 by FFVs. These factors (Figure 1) are (a) the total motor gasoline demand, (b) the total 
volume of ethanol, (c) the form of the ethanol-gasoline blend distributed to the consumer, and 
(d) the number of vehicles which consume the E85. These factors interact; as an example, both 
the number of FFVs and the volume of ethanol determine how much E85 is produced and sold. 

Figure 1 - Factors in E85 Demand 


Consideration 1 Total Motor Gasoline Demand 

Consideration 2 Total Gasoline Used Total Ethanol Used 


Consideration 3 ElO Used E15 Used ESS Used 

Consideration 4 ESS capable vehicle population !''"BiTOtWifyjftlclCTBfulifB hBill 


There is uncertainty about each of these future projections. With regard to ethanol, the US 
market has reached the “ElO blend wall” or the point at which ethanol blends above ElO would 
be necessary to absorb the quantity of ethanol needed to meet the statutory volume levels in the 
RFS program. Projecting the future volumes of different ethanol blends higher than ElO is 
uncertain.^® On the vehicle side, there is significant uncertainty with regard to the continued 
production rates of flex fueled vehicles.^’ These complexities and considerations are discussed 
in the following sections. 

For the draft guidance, to compensate for this uncertainty, rather than focusing on 
a single scenario, EPA evaluated a range of scenarios that bracketed the possible 
outcomes. The remaining sections discuss inputs and present analysis for the twelve 
different scenarios used for the draft guidance, the public comments on those 
scenarios, and EPA’s approach for the final guidance. For the draft guidance we 
analyzed two assumptions about the total quantity of ethanol, two assumptions 
about the different ethanol-gasoline blends, and three assumptions regarding future 
FFV sales. As explained in detail below, after considering comments and the 
current ethanol market under EPA’s RFS program, EPA is basing the final F factor 
for MYs 2016-2018 on AEO 2014 projections for total ethanol volume, ethanol 
blend, and FFV sales projections. Model Framework 

This analysis was conducted using an updated version of the OMEGA model used in the MY 

For a discussion of the different combinations of ElO, E15, and E85 that might result from the RFS volume 
requirements see the RFS2 final rule at 75 FR 14760-14763 (March 26,2010). 

Of note, this analysis uses FFV production volume as an input, and outputs an expected E85 usage fraction. This 
fraction, through the resulting vehicle credit, in turn circularly influences the FFV production volume.

2017-2025 LD GHG rulemaking. The OMEGA benefits post processor spreadsheet (version 
1.4.1)'® was extended to conduct the fuel volume calculations needed for this analysis.'^ For this 
analysis, we also normalized the light duty energy demand (consideration 1 above) to the motor 
gasoline (including E85) demand presented in the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA's) 
Annual Energy Outlook (AEO), hereafter called AEO 2014.^° Thus, the population and VMT 
models in OMEGA are used to determine the allocation of energy between vehicle MYs, but not 
the overall amount of energy. Other than these changes, the inputs are either identical to those 
used in the rulemaking, or as described in the next sections. For this analysis, the LDGHG 2017- 
2025 rulemaking’s scenario of the MY2010 base fleet was used. 

In the basic calculation of the F factor, the OMEGA model is given inputs as to the total number 
of FFVs sold each year, the total amount of ethanol used in each calendar year, and assumptions 
about E10/E15 usage. In the calculation, total energy, total ethanol, and E15 volumes are fixed 
as inputs, while the El0 and E85 volumes float in order to absorb the total ethanol volume 
(Figure 2). The model is used to calculate the total gallons of E85 required to consume the input 
ethanol quantity, and the fraction of miles the FFVs would need to run on ethanol in order to 
consume that fuel. This fraction is the “F factor” described above.

Figure 2 - Calculation Dynamics 



In this calculation, we neglect the marginal ehange in FFV energy demand as a result of the 
change in fuels. While an increase in E85 usage could decrease the total energy demand of the 
FFVs, this effect is small, and is a secondary consideration in this calculation. This conservative 
assumption marginally biases the F factor to a lower number. 

4.1.2. FFV Sales Projeetions 

One of the difficulties in estimating the F factor is estimating the number of FFVs that will be 
sold in future years. As discussed below, there is a historic relationship between an incentive for 
FFV production (the CAFE credit) and the production of FFVs. However, we have no direct 
estimate of the relationship between the credit size and the production of FFVs, particularly in 
the context of a fleetwide standard that becomes increasingly stringent. 

There is a likely equilibrium with regard to the compliance benefit for the manufacturer and the 
production of FFVs. There is a direct relationship between the F factor and the incentive for 
building FFVs, but an inverse relationship between number of FFVs sold and the F factor. With 
a fixed pool of ethanol, additional FFV sales decrease the value of the F factor per vehicle, as the 
additional vehicles reduce the amount of E85 that each individual vehicle will consume (Figure 
3). Thus, at some level of sales and stringency, the cost for producing an FFV will be greater 
than the value received for producing it. In the absence of other factors, manufacturers are 

11

unlikely to build FFVs if the increased production costs exceed the compliance benefit.

increasing Vehicle Production 


With these guiding concepts, we evaluated a range of FFV production forecasts. 

4.1.2.1. Existing Projections 

With regard to existing projections of FFV production, we are aware only of the Department of 
Energy / Energy Information Administration (EIA) projections of FFV sales. EIA projects FFVs 
as approximately 8% of light duty sales between 2012 and 2030^* in AEO 2013 and revised this 
projection to 11% in AEO 2014.^^ These sales projections are based on assumptions regarding 
the CAFE credit value. EPA did not use EIA’s projections of FFV sales for the draft guidance 
but is using them for the final guidance, as discussed below. 

4.1.2.2. Historic FFV Sales Rates 


For the draft analysis, EPA projected that FFV sales would grow over time until leveling off in 
2020. Several elements fed into the projections of FFV production EPA used in its draft 
guidance. EPA considered historic FFV production and conversion volumes (Figure 4) which 
have grown over time.

EPA also reviewed production data submitted by manufacturers as part of the annual 
certification and compliance process. In MY 2012, FFV production was dominated by General 
Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. While these three domestic manufacturers produced approximately 
40% of their fleet as FFVs, US production as a whole was at 16%. As seen helow (Table 1), 
other manufacturers do not produce significant total numbers of FFVs relative to their own fleet, 
or the nation as a whole. These sales results are very similar to the 2011 sales results, where FFV 
sales made up about 17% of overall vehicle sales.

EPA further examined the manufaeturer vehiele produetion data to determine if the data 
supported particular projections of FFV sales. EPA attempted to identify a production outpoint 
or other metric based on current data that could be applied across the fleet to determine a 
reasonable projection of potential future FFV sales. While the division of manufacturers 
between FFV producers and non-producers is clear, there is no such line amongst vehicle 
production. FFVs are applied in both high volume and low volume vehicles, and the same 
engine is frequently used in both FFV and non-FFV applications, sometimes in the same vehicle 
model. While FFVs production historically tended to be focused on light trucks, there are 
currently several passenger car models that are FFVs. EPA was not able to identify a production 
cut point or other metric that could be applied across the fleet to project potential future FFV 
sales. Manufacturer considerations beyond those discussed here are likely to drive future trends, 
however, these considerations likely differ by manufacturer and application. 

4.1.2.3. FFV Sales Projections 

Given the lack of clarity in industry trends for FFV production, we created three projections - 
lower FFV sales, mid FFV sales, and a higher FFV sales scenario for the draft guidance analysis. 
All three scenarios rise from the current sales level to a maximum sales fraction in MY 2020. 

The projected sales fractions used in the modeling for the draft guidance were 25%, 38%, and 
50% by 2020. The projections assumed that incentives would be sufficient to induce 
manufacturers to continue to produce ^"^larger volumes of FFVs into the future. We assumed that 
the manufacturer’s desire to obtain the compliance benefit from use of FFV E85 emission values 
would increase as the fleetwide standard continues to increase in stringency. 

^^All commenters that provided comment on the FFV sales projections recommended that lower

sales projections should be used, noting that the benefit of producing FFVs is reduced 
significantly under the F factor approach compared to CAFE. The Alliance comments that the 
overall fleet benefit constitutes a greater than 95% reduction in FFV benefit in comparison to the 
CAFE calculation. This is on top of the extra technical difficulties which may be experienced in 
certifying new FFV concepts to emission standards other than GHG, especially in light of the 
higher level of highly boosted, downsized motors predicted for deployment by the industry in the 
future. Growth Energy commented that EPA’s projections seem optimistic considering the 
sizable number of automobile manufacturers not currently producing FFVs under the current 
CAFE program which provides considerably more incentive compared to the F factor. 
Reformulated Fuels Association and other ethanol representatives similarly commented that 
lower sales projections should be used. 

For the final guidance, EPA is using the AEO 2014 FFV production projection of 11 percent for 
2020 and later. EPA reviewed the MY 2012 FFV production data which showed that FFV sales 
have declined in terms of percent of sales from 17% of sales in 2011 to 16% of sales in 2012. 

For the final guidance, EPA is using a projection of declining percent sales from 16% in 2012 to 
11% in 2020 with sales remaining at 11% thereafter, consistent with AEO 2014. This approach 
is responsive to comments that EPA’s draft projections were too high and consistent with the 
decline in percent of sales from 2011 to 2012. This approach is also consistent with using AEO 
projections for total ethanol volumes as fewer FFVs will be available to consume E85 under this 
lower ethanol scenario. 


Figure 5- FFV Sales Scenarios 



4.1.3. Total Ethanol Volume Projections 

For the draft guidance, we considered two different total ethanol projections. In the first, the mid-

ethanol case from the RFS2 rulemaking^®,the full volume requirements of the RFS program are 
met in all years and the volume of ethanol used to meet those requirements (as opposed to other 
types of renewable fuel) are in the middle of the range of possible outcomes. In the second, we 
used the latest available EIA projection of ethanol production and use from AEO 2013ER for an 
alternate projection of future ethanol volume^l^® For the draft guidance, we considered these 
two scenarios reasonable bounds on the potential future volumes of ethanol. 


Figure 6 - Ethanol Volume Projections Used in the Draft Guidance 



EPA received diverse comments on what total ethanol volumes should be used in the analysis. 
The Alliance and ethanol industry commenters generally supported using higher ethanol volumes 
which would in turn would result a higher F factor. The Alliance commented that the AEO 
scenario should be dropped because RFS is required by law and manufacturers should not be 
penalized if other parties do not comply. Growth Energy and RFA also supported using high and 
mid-case RFS scenarios without including the AEO scenarios. The National Com Growers 
Association, Illinois RFA and the American Coalition for Ethanol supported including multiple 
high and mid RFS cases rather than just the RFS mid case, along with the AEO scenario. 


UCS commented that only the AEO scenario should be included. UCS commented that the RFS 
targets were aspirational and non-binding and that RFS targets will not be met through 2022. 
ICCT and ACEEE recommended that EPA not use projections as the basis for the F factor but

that it should be based on historical fuel use. ICCT estimated that this approach would result in 
an F factor in the range of 0.01. 


EPA is basing the final F factor exclusively on the AEO 2014 projections.^® In the 2014 RFS 
proposed rule, EPA has for the first time proposed RFS ethanol volumes below those specified 
in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA20007). As this indicates, the 
statutory volumes are not mandatory and EPA can waive the volumes partially based on 
reasonable projections of biofuel use. It is highly unlikely that the ethanol volumes specified in 
the statute will all be attainable in the time-frame envisioned. EPA is not prepared at this time to 
project future ethanol volumes or timing based on the volumes listed in the statutory language 
for the RFS program. Therefore, EPA is using the projections provided in AEO 2014 as the best 
projections currently available. The other option would be to postpone setting the F factor until 
additional data is available, which would negatively impact manufacturer lead-time and 
certainty. EPA believes that basing the F factor on historic fuel use would be too conservative 
because it does not account for any continued phase-in of the RFS program. The F factor is an 
estimate of fuel use over the life of MY 2016 vehicles and basing the F factor on historic use 
would not include any continued growth of ethanol volumes, whereas AEO 2014 does include a 
conservative estimate for continued growth taking into account RFS. 


The AEO 2014 projections are based on EIA’s best estimate of what will occur in the market. 
They are well below the EISA RFS levels as shown in the figure below. EIA attributes the 
shortfall largely to the decline in overall gasoline consumption as a result of increasingly 
stringent CAFE standards and updated projections of FFV sales. 


EPA received comments from ICCT and UCS that drop-in fuels must be considered in projecting 
ethanol volumes. AEO 2014 includes projections for increased use of biobutanol and drop-in 
fuels, which is directionally responsive to these comments.^' 


See Table 11 of AEO 2013ER for projeeted ethanol volumes.

Figure 7 - Ethanol Volumes Including AEO 2014 




4.1.4. Ethanol Use Scenarios 

In addition to overall ethanol volume there is also uncertainty regarding how much ethanol may 
be consumed as E15. Currently, E15 is being consumed in very small volumes but it has been on 
the market for only a short time and availability is still very limited. For a specified volume of 
total ethanol, if E15 use grows significantly, the amount of ethanol consumed as E85 would 
necessarily decrease, thus resulting in a lower F factor. Therefore, the amount of El 5 potentially 
consumed in the future is another significant point of uncertainty for EPA’s analysis. In an 
attempt to bracket the potential ethanol use in the future, we considered two different allocations 
of ethanol for the draft guidance analysis: an aggressive E15 case, and a case that assumes no 
E15 usage, as shown in the figure below. 

The aggressive E15 case assumed increased E15 use to 50% by 2020 (for MY2001+ non-FFV 
vehicles). Farther into the future, we assumed E15 use increased substantially for MY2001+ non- 
FFV vehicles, reaching a usage of 95% by 2025. Any remaining ElO in the fuel supply for this 
case is consumed almost entirely in non-road, marine and off-road vehicles and equipment. In 
the second case included in the draft guidance, El5 is not considered as a blend. Any ethanol 
beyond blending at an ElO level would be used in FFVs. We did not consider scenarios that 
include other ethanol blends, such as E30 use in FFVs for the purposes of this analysis. 



VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012913 






EPA received a range of comments on the E15 projections. Growth Energy, REA, the National 
Com Growers Association, and Illinois RFA commented that projected El5 use should not be 
included in the analysis. Growth Energy commented that all ethanol above ElO should be 
counted as E85 to give GHG credits to manufacturers for the use of the fuel. RFA commented 
that due to current issues and uncertainty regarding the use of El 5, El 5 scenarios should not be 
included. The Alliance did not comment against including both the no E15 and the E15 
scenarios but did comment that the analysis should be updated to reflect actual El5 use when the 
F factor is updated in the future. UCS commented that the El5 scenarios should be retained and 
that EPA should consider increasing their weighting due to the potential for butanol, E30, and 
other biofuels that could reduce or even eliminate the potential sales of E85. 

EPA has considered the above comments and is not including the aggressive E15 projections 
used in the draft guidance. EPA continues to believe that including an aggressive El5 scenario 
may have been appropriate if EPA were retaining the RFS ethanol volume scenarios as part of 
the analysis. With the higher total ethanol volumes it would be reasonable to include aggressive 
El5 projections as a potential mechanism for consuming these high ethanol levels, or as a 
surrogate for a variety of other potential fuels as suggested by UCS. However, EPA is only 
including AEO 2014 projected ethanol volumes which are significantly lower than the RFS mid¬ 
case total ethanol projections. AEO 2014 provides projections for El5 use which are coupled 
with AEO’s overall lower ethanol use projections. The E15 levels are projected to stay below 
10% through 2030, as shown in the figure below. For the final guidance analysis, EPA is using 
the E15 projections that are calculated from AEO 2014, as they are consistent with AEO’s 
projected total ethanol levels. 


Figure 8 - Projected E15 Usage Fraction 



We assume that each gallon of E85 is 83% ethanol. While inconsistent with market practices,^^ 

19 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012914 



this assures alignment between the emissions test which relies on E85 certification fuel with 83% 
ethanol and the analytic assumptions made here. [We should have a sentence or two explaining 
why we are not treating E15 as E85, per Growth Energy’s suggestion] 

4.1.4.1. Infrastructure 

The AEO 2014 projections assume that infrastructure issues will continue to be gradually 
resolved over time.^^ The number of blender pumps needed to meet AEO projections is much 
more in line with current infrastructure growth rates compared with the infrastructure needs 
estimated in the RFS2 final rule (at least 23,000 stations by 2022).^"^ While the number of retail 
stations having blender pumps that dispense E85 would need to continue to increase^^ we 
believe that such increases are within the capabilities of the industry. 

4.2. Limits of this Analysis 

This analysis is limited by the quality of its input projections, where there is varying certainty 
about the inputs and some of the inputs are unlikely to occur in concert. As an example, a high 
ethanol volume scenario is unlikely to occur simultaneously with few FFV sales. Similarly, low 
ethanol volumes along with high FFV sales are also unlikely, since there would be insufficient 
E85 to fuel these vehicles, and little incentive to build them. 

We also assume that the E85 consumption is an equivalent fraction of each MYs FFV fuel 
consumption during each calendar year. For example, in calendar year (CY) 2020, MY 2020 
and MY2007 vehicles consume different amounts of energy (proportional to their VMT and 
efficiencies), but all onroad FFVs consume the same fraction of that energy as E85. 

4.3. Results 

The CY results are weighted by the survival weighted VMT accumulation rate of MY 2016 
vehicles over the first 15 years of life (approximately 80-85% of projected lifetime driving 
depending on whether cars or trucks are considered).^® Focusing on the first fifteen years 
(through 2030) is neither a clearly conservative or aggressive assumption, as it depends on the 
relationship between ethanol production and consumption in later years and earlier years. 
However, focusing on the first fifteen years allows us to limit the need to project the far future. 


Actual E85 average ethanol fraetion is likely eloser to 74%. See footnote 157 at 75 FR 14762 (March 26, 2010).

Figure 9 — VMT Weighting 



For the draft guidance, we ran the OMEGA model using each comhination of the assumptions 
above, and calculated an F factor for each CY. This F factor was weighted by the VMT accrual 
rate shown above (Figure 9), and calculated for each scenario ^’(Table 2).^® As a reminder, for 
the draft we looked at two different ethanol volume scenarios, two different ethanol usage 
scenarios, and three different sales scenarios leading to a total of twelve scenarios analyzed.

The VMT accmal rate shown here is a production weighted mix of cars and tmcks. While the VMT for cars and 
trucks differ, their relative accmal rates do not significantly differ, and for simplicity, a single rate is used.

For the draft guidance, rather than selecting one of the scenarios above as a primary analysis on 
which to base the MY 2016 F factor, EPA averaged all of the scenarios producing an F factor of 
0.23. To be conservative on the side of environmental protection in light of the uncertainty in 
the analysis, EPA rounded this value down to 0.2 for MY 2016. 

For the final guidance, EPA has based the F factor of 0.14 on a single scenario based on AEO 
2014 projections for the reasons discussed above. Although lower than the draft F factor of 0.2, 
the 0.14 factor represents about a fourteen fold increase in the factor over time compared to 
current E85 usage rates. The F factor analysis was conducted for MY 2016 but EPA is allowing 
the 0.14 factor to be used for MYs 2017-2018 as well. EPA does not believe the value will 
change significantly in this time frame and wants to provide as much leadtime as possible to 
manufacturers. 

EPA plans to revisit the weighting factor for MY 2019 and later. EPA will conduct a new 
analysis considering available data in establishing the value for MY 2019. In the draft guidance, 
EPA considered allowing the 0.2 F factor to be used through MY 2019 unless available data 
suggested a revision was needed sooner. However, EPA received comments that the F factor 
should be locked-in as far out as possible, and not be subject to review and possible revision, in 

22 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 012917 




order to provide manufacturers with as much certainty as possible. EPA understands these 
concerns and is locking in the 0.14 F factor for MYs 2016-2018. However, EPA is balancing the 
manufacturers’ need for certainty with uncertainty regarding future ethanol use and FFV sales. 
Therefore, EPA believes that it is reasonable to revisit the F factor for the 2019 model year. 


5. Comments Beyond the Scope of the Guidance Document 

Several commenters submitted comments regarding the need to provide incentives for the sale of 
FFVs in support of the RFS program. EPA believes these comments are beyond the scope of the 
guidance document. In the MY 2012-2016 rule, EPA established regulations that moved away 
from non-performance based credits for FFVs to a system where credits are based on measured 
CO 2 performance weighted by estimated real-world use of those fuels. In the MY 2017-2025 
rule, EPA received comments that FFVs should be provided additional incentives to encourage 
their production. EPA declined to make changes to the program during the MY 2017-2025 rule 
that would provide additional incentives for FFV production.^® The policy question of whether 
or not FFV’s should be provided with additional incentives was thus already addressed by both 
rulemakings. 

This guidance document is narrow in scope and is being undertaken per the regulations 
established in the MY 2012-2016 rule that EPA “will determine and publish by written guidance 
an appropriate value of F for each requested alternative fuel based on the Administrator’s 
assessment of real-world use of the alternative fuel” (see 40 CFR 600.510-12(k)(l)). Therefore, 
EPA believes that providing credits that go beyond those that can be justified based on the 
Administrator’s assessment of real-world use of the alternative fuel is not allowed under the 
regulations. EPA does not believe that this guidance can be used as a vehicle to revisit the 
appropriateness of or introduce a pathway for providing additional incentives for FFV 
production. 


6. Conclusion 

EPA is establishing the E85 weighting factor to be used by manufacturers in weighting CO 2 
emissions on E85 and conventional gasoline for purposes of FFV certification. The F factor is 
based on the assessment of real-world fuel use over the life of the average FFV. Because the 
factor represents a real world assessment of the E85 used by an FFV over its lifetime, EPA must 
base the F factor on projections of future ethanol use and FFV production. EPA is establishing 
an F factor on 0.14 for MYs 2016-2018 based on AEO 2014 projections for FFV sales, total 
ethanol use, and ethanol blends. The 0.14 factor may not be used beyond MY 2018. EPA will 
take action to establish F factors for MY 2019 and later based on a full review of updated 
information.

Richard, 


re: 2015 FE Guide - Errors in EPA's data base as of June 11, 2014 


Attached are the data in Verify as of June 11,2014. Labeis with pea green fill in the first few columns 
have errors which need to be corrected before I can have the data posted on www.fueleconomv.aov . 

The errors are also highlighted in yellow fill in the column where the error occurred. [Note that the 
method our macro uses for calculating voluntarily increased C02 values is outlined in section 10.1 of CD- 
13-11—(if the macro flagged any errors in voluntarily increased C02 values).] 


The next normal posting of 2015 FE Label data will be on June 17, 2014 (on a monthly schedule where I 
run the query on the 1®*, 9*'’,15* and 23rd of the month) and send the data to DOE for posting on that day 
(or a day later). 


Please make any needed corrections to Verify when you get a chance. 


Thanks 


Dave

Meeting with VW/Audi 



Hello Jim: 


I am not sure if you are aware of a VW Group meeting being set up for the morning of 
Wednesday, July 16, 2014 with Mike Olechiw and others to discuss outstanding issues with Tier 
3 implementation. We would also like the opportunity to discuss SCR-related topics. Would it 
be possible to have that discussion in the afternoon of the same day? That would allow us to take 
advantage of the presence of colleagues from Volkswagen and Audi. The request would be for 
another couple of hours. 


Best regards.

Thanks for sending me the presentation. I have also forwarded it to others to review.

Good morning Jim,

Subject: DIS current common applications 


Hi Dave; 


We have investigated the information on DIS for several manufactures and did not find common 
sections of the application for certification much newer that 2007 model year. However, we did 
find 2014 model year information for manufacture’s test groups. Is there an explanation that 
would explain why these common sections have not been updated? 


Thanks, 

Richard

that government employees participate in accordance with governmental regulations. 
Members are appointed to SAE Technical Committees on the basis of their individual 
qualifications which enable them to contribute to the work of the Committee. 


Patent Disclosure: Each SAE Technical Committee or SAE working group member would be 
required to disclose at specified times during a development process all patents and patent 
applications that are owned, controlled or licensed by the member, member’s employer or third 
party and that the member believes may become essential to the draft specification under 
development. The member would make this disclosure based on the member’s good faith and 
reasonable inquiry. If SAE International receives a notice that a proposed SAE Technical 
Report may require the use of an invention claimed in a patent, the respective part of the SAE 
Technical Standards Board Policy will be followed. 


Transparency Statement; This Technical Committee/Task Force is committed to 
transparency at the highest level. All topics are discussed in open meetings and decisions are 
consensus based (not unanimous). Committee/Task Force members are required to be vigilant 
in their efforts to monitor Committee/Task Force activities and decisions by actively 
participating in the Committee/Task Force. Any issues with the transparency of this 
Committee/Task Force not resolved by the Committee/Task Force Chairman should be 
brought to the attention of the SAE for resolution.

1. Welcome and Introductions

3. Membership Review 

4. Document Review 

4.1 J3066 - On-Board Fuel Consumption Measurement and Reporting Standard 

2.1.1 Sponsor: David Wright 

2.1.2 Proposed to create a standardized method for calculating and reporting vehicle fuel 
consumption on the vehicle’s information display. Manufacturer use of the standard would 
provide vehicle owners and testing organizations an option to compare consumption between 
vehicles knowing the calculation methodology is consistent. 

2.2 Reviewed Discussion Topics 

2.2.1 Distance Travelled Methodology. 

2.2.1.1 It appears that there maybe some relevant SAE standards as there is an SAE Odometer and 
Speedometer Standards Committee. J. Glodich offered to research the topic and report back to 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 013029 


the Task Force. 

2.2.2 MPG and MPGe Calculation Methodologies. 

2.2.2.1 Reviewed and discussed the initial draft of the MPG/MPGe Calculation Methodology. The 
question was raised for gasoline-fueled vehicles if the purge flow would need to be included in 
the delivered fuel calculation. Currently only the liquid fuel quantity is calculated. D. Wright 
committed to expanding the gasoline-fueled engine calculation methodology to include the 
generic ‘speed-density’ and ‘mass airflow’ equations. 

2.2.2.2 R. Loeffler offered to provide (and has provided) a copy of the call for experts form which will 
allow the Task Force to request assistance with the detailed equations for calculating fuel 
consumption for other fuels. 

2.2.3 Evaluating the Accuracy of the Proposed Calculation Methodologies. 

2.2.3.1 Discussed using the federal test procedure (FTP), highway fuel economy (HFET), and US06 
tests as a basis for comparing the on-board vehicle fuel consumption display. The on-board 
fuel consumption display is reset before the test and the fuel economy is recorded at the 
completion of each test. The on-board displayed fuel economy recorded at the end of each test 
is compared to the fuel economy calculated using the carbon-balance method from the exhaust 
emissions test. D. Pawlak indicated they had begun testing vehicles using this procedure. It 
was suggested that EPA could use this method as part of the on-going surveillance testing of 
manufacturer’s vehicles. These data could be used to determine what if any significant 
differences exist between the different manufacturers and results obtained during emission 
testing. 

2.2.3.2 A discussion ensued regarding developing a database of test results which would be compiled 
but would not indicate the vehicle or manufacturer only the results of the testing. R. Loeffler 
indicated that SAE has a service which could be used for this task. R. Loeffler provided D. 
Wright with a powerpoint document describing the service. 

2.2.3.3 It was also discussed that the standard could include an option for a manufacturer to use their 
own method as long as the method used would correlate within a given percentage of the fuel 
economy measured during the FTP, HFET, and US06 carbon balance fuel economy results. 

2.2.4. Drive Quality Metric. 

2.2.5 Draft J3066 Standard Text. 

2.2.5.1 R. Loeffler has provided to D. Wright the new template for the J3066 standard and a copy of the 
SAE Style Manual. D. Wright has committed to beginning a draft of the standard and a write-up 
of the purpose.

Richard, 


re: 2015 FE Guide - Errors in EPA's data base as of June 17, 2014 


Attached are the data in Verify as of June 17, 2014. Labeis with pea green fiii in the first few columns 
have errors which need to be corrected before I can have the data posted on www.fueleconomv.aov . 

The errors are also highlighted in yellow fill in the column where the error occurred. [Note that the 
method our macro uses for calculating voluntarily increased C02 values is outlined in section 10.1 of CD- 
13-11—(if the macro flagged any errors in voluntarily increased C02 values).] 


The next normal posting of 2015 FE Label data will be on June 23, 2014 (on a monthly schedule where I 
run the query on the 1®*, 9*'’,15* and 23rd of the month) and send the data to DOE for posting on that day 
(or a day later). 


Please make any needed corrections to Verify when you get a chance. 


Thanks

Hello Jim: 


Thanks for the diseussion just now. You refereneed page 10 of a handbook that that ineludes 
NEMA codes for electrical connections. Perhaps we have seen this handbook and I just don’t 
recall, but is this handbook something available to manufacturers?

Rob & Line, 


Before I forward this over to Chris Lieske, I’ll do some digging to see how much authority EPA 

has for approving GHG credits on the tick list—e.g. can we deny credits for poorly engineered 
stop-start systems or approve 50% credits for latching stop-start systems?

Hello David, 


hello Line, 


thank you again for the good discussion Wednesday. 


I have one more question for you; 

In the mail below you granted us a factor of 50% of the Fuel Economy savings for a car that is 
equipped with a Stop-Start System in a “Last Mode” configuration. 

In order to prepare the 2012/2013 Off Cycle application and for future planning of the roll out for 
Stop-Start would it be acceptable for you if we calculate with 50% of the according Off-Cycle

credit value for each vehicle equipped with a “Last Mode” System ?

Subject: Re: Testing Strategy Approval Request - Audi A8 Start/Stop Systems 


Ex. 7 


Background: In a May 8, 2012 meeting, VW/Audi staff presented EPA with a description of the stop/start 
system and cylinder deactivation system for these 2013 Audi A8 vehicles. The vehicle is equipped with 
what you called "Last-mode functionality," where the last stop/start setting (enabie/disabie mode) is 
restored after stopping and restarting the vehicle. In other words, the stop/start button is "latched" when 


VW FOIA, EPA 


06/20/2017 


2017-FFP 013098 












stopping and restarting the vehicie. Aithough I had a conflict on May 8, 2012 and didn't get to drive the 
vehicle, it's my understanding that the May 8, 2012 drive was acceptable to aii EPA engineers who drove 
it (including both the stop/start feature and the cylinder deactivation feature of the vehicie). 


Regarding your current request to perform one test for the Highway, SC03 and Cold FTP cycle (and two 
sets of FTP and US06 tests—with and without the stop/start system enabled), we believe that your 
request sounds reasonable to us, and it is hereby approved. 

Please call or email me if you have questions about this email.
