Unrealistic Assumptions Lead to Unsustainable Results for Corn Stover

dmf060222-001

There is a growing body of independent research reporting the results of practical field trials for corn stover harvesting, switchgrass production, and other sources of advanced and cellulosic biofuels. This research has led to guidelines and measurement tools for sustainably harvesting crop residues, in order to ensure soil health. The main point of this decade-old area of research is to help farmers know their fields and to engage in sustainable harvesting practices. Companies planning to Read More >

That growing market helps attract investment to advanced biofuel companies who are trying to expand their infrastructure, scale up their production line, and improve their technology foundation. Unfortunately, the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recent Read More >

FuelsAmerica

The Only Existing Transportation Fuel Program to Tackle Climate Change Is in Danger The Fuels America Coalition will be holding a digital “Day of Action” on January 23, seeking out supporters of renewable fuel. The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is the foundation for increasing production and use of renewable fuels in the United States. Renewable fuels reduce our dependence on oil, help diminish our carbon emissions, and provide economic opportunities across the country. But the Read More >

Today, December 5, 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), held a public hearing for the proposed rule 2014 Standards for the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Program. The EPA has drafted amendments to the RFS program regulations which was established in the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007. This law determines the annual percentage standards for cellulosic biofuel, biomass-based diesel, advanced biofuel, and renewable fuels that would apply to all gasoline and diesel produced in the U.S. Read More >
