How does the RMS handle processes that convert plastics to energy or fuels?

We recognizes that fuels might be created through the same processes creating chemical intermediaries that can be further processed into usable materials. However, fuels are excluded from eligibility under the RMS. In these situations where multiple products are created, having a standard to define and track the eligible materials becomes that much more important. If a process creates both chemical intermediaries and fuels, only the chemical intermediary portion is eligible for RMS; the portion converted to fuel would be considered a “loss” accounted for by the conversion factor.
