Ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel was proposed by EPA as a new standard for the sulfur content in on-road diesel fuel sold in the United States since 2006. The regulation applies to all diesel fuel, diesel fuel additives and distillate fuels blended with diesel for on-road use, such as kerosene. All highway diesel fuel is ULSD. Non-road diesel fuel was required to move to 500 ppm sulfur in 2007 and further to ULSD in 2010. Railroad locomotive and marine diesel fuel also moved to 500 ppm sulfur in 2007 and will change to ULSD in 2012. After December 1, 2014, all highway, non-road, locomotive and marine diesel fuel produced and imported will be ULSD.
