(Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will require fuel companies to blend 15 billion gallons of conventional renewable fuels into the nation's fuel supply in 2018, in line with the volume it proposed in July and steady with 2017, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The agency will also require fuel companies to blend 2.1 billion gallons of biodiesel for 2019, in line with the July proposal and steady with the previous year, according to the report, which cited an unnamed EPA official.

The EPA, which is required to announce the volumes targets on Thursday, did not immediately comment.
