Cover crops seem like a low-carbon solution for meeting the demand for alternative fuels. However, alternative uses for cover crops need to be taken into account.
Although the solid fuel pool is expected to be the smallest contributor to the proposed Clean Fuels Standard’s broader target, its implementation could have a substantial effect on the climate impact of the program overall.
The German Ministry of the Environment’s proposal goes beyond the Directive’s requirements to limit certain biofuels.
The proposed low-carbon fuel standard, although well-intentioned, may double down on past mistakes
What’s driving the growth in used cooking oil collection, and how high can it go?
Biofuels are confusing because they’re complicated, and they’re complicated mainly because of indirect effects.
Amending Germany’s ban on animal fats in its advanced fuel policy could bring considerable unintended consequences.
Though corn kernel fiber is nominally a “waste” product, when diverting it to make cellulosic ethanol, how it is removed can significantly influence the final climate impact.
European Commission’s revised delegated act will significantly reduce, but not eliminate, the amount of palm oil used in biofuel in the EU
The EC will will soon decide on criteria for classifying high- and low-risk indirect land use change (ILUC) biofuels under the RED II. If the Commission gets it right, this provision could make a positive difference without becoming a giant loophole.
The European gas industry argues we should continue using natural gas infrastructure and vehicles because the European Union’s gas supply can be transformed to a fully renewable resource by 2050. Is this really possible?
In a rule released last month, EPA became the first regulatory body to accurately account for greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from displacing waste, residue, and byproduct biofuel feedstocks from pre-existing uses.
