EPA Drafting Rules on International Land Use Change

Biofuels & Climate Change

The U.S. EPA is expected to release a proposed rulemaking for implementing the lifecycle analysis requirements for biofuels under the renewable fuels standard. (Check out the EPA’s official blog, even though it contains no posts on this subject.) Estimating the emissions generated through the production of biofuels has been controversial, particularly with respect to how land-use changes affect emissions. E&E TV’s OnPoint recently interviewed Jack Huttner, vice president of Dupont Danisco Cellulosic Ethanol, about the biofuels industry’s take on how EPA should proceed with the rulemaking. Huttner discusses how the inclusion of indirect land-use emissions could influence his industry’s ability to meet the renewable fuels standard.
