Auto Parser & RINS Forecast

CLIENT: Major Biofuel Trading Firm

PROJECT TASK

•Data released from the EPA for RINS (Renewable Identification Numbers) is of extreme importance to the Biofuels trading community.

•The data is tough to parse through manually, and requires tedious work to compile the data to a balance sheet for market participants that need supply and demand estimates for trading/hedging purposes.

PROJECT SOLUTION

•Developed an automated solution for importing monthly RINs data released from the EPA.

•Created an automated parsing tool to separate and organize the monthly data dump.

•Automatically fill the data into a balance sheet developed from scratch for the project, which also was built to give the client modeling and forecasting capabilities.
