EcoEngineers was first to establish a Quality Assurance Protocol for RIN Management to ensure RIN integrity of the producers we served. Our goal was to protect the investment of our clients, optimize the value of their product, and successfully connect them to appropriate markets. EcoEngineers was also one of the first approved by USEPA to provide the Q-RIN designation.
Our detailed, hands-on protocol is supported by a team of highly trained compliance auditors, compliance specialists, and in-house engineers. EcoEngineers’ Quality Assurance Program (QAP) requirements begin with the onboarding process where we review your program requirements and expectations, and provide appropriate training.
Clients enrolled in EcoEngineers’ QAP provide a comprehensive list of production documents that are audited by the team monthly and reported quarterly and annually per USEPA requirements. EcoEngineers invests substantial resources in support and execution of our QAP. We hold our work to exceptionally high standards and apply the same standards to our clients.
EcoEngineers is completely independent of the renewable fuel producers it audits and plays no role in the RIN generation process. EcoEngineers and its contractors and subcontractors are not owned or operated by any renewable fuel producer or foreign ethanol producer, or any subsidiary or employee of a renewable fuel producer or foreign ethanol producer. EcoEngineers is not owned or operated by any obligated party or any subsidiary or employee of an obligated party as defined in 40 CFR § 80.1406. EcoEngineers does not own, buy, sell, or otherwise trade RINs, unless required to maintain a financial assurance mechanism for a Quality Assurance Program(QAP) implemented under QAP Option A pursuant to 40 CFR § 80.1469(a) during the interim period or to replace an invalid RIN pursuant to 40 CFR § 80.1474. EcoEngineers is entirely free from any interest in any and all QAP Clients’ businesses or in the monetary value of the RINs.
