CATF Comments to EPA Science Advisory Board’s Panel on Biogenic Carbon Emissions
The SAB Panel on Biogenic Carbon Emissions, which advised EPA in 2012 on how to account for GHG emitted by biomass-burning facilities, was reconvened in 2015. CATF’s comments to the Panel summarize the biomass-related regulatory actions that EPA has taken since 2012 and outline principles that can be used by…
CATF Comments on Proposed Re-Adoption of California LCFS and ILUC Analysis
In addition to urging the Air Resources Board to readopt California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard through 2020, CATF’s comments illustrate the analytic- and policy-related problems with ARB staff’s proposal to reduce the lifecycle GHG assessment for corn ethanol.
Corn Butanol: Economics and Performance of Gevo’s Technology
Butanol made from corn starch poses many of the same climate threats associated with corn ethanol.
Comments on EPA’s Proposed 2014 RFS Volume Requirements
In its proposed adjustments to the RFS mandate for 2014, EPA would address the blend wall by reducing the annual volume requirements for advanced biofuels and, more significantly, for corn ethanol. CATF’s comments detail the environmental benefits of EPA’s proposal.
Letter of Support for the Feinstein-Coburn Bill to Eliminate the Corn Ethanol Mandate
CATF supports the Feinstein-Coburn bill in conjunction with a diverse collection of groups concerned about corn ethanol and the RFS, including environmental organizations, anti-hunger advocates, livestock and poultry producers, restaurant owners, small engine manufacturers, and others.
CATF Comments to House E&C Committee on RFS Climate Impacts
CATF comments to the Energy & Commerce Committee on the GHG emissions from the RFS corn ethanol mandate, the possibility of future emission increases from proposed RFS implementation strategies, and the steps that EPA or Congress can take to avoid those emissions increases going forward.
Comments on Proposed RFS Pathway for Corn Butanol
CATF, in conjunction with ActionAid, EWG, FOE, NRDC, NWF, and Sierra Club, urges EPA to withdraw a proposal that would allow butanol made from corn starch to qualify as an “advanced biofuel” under the RFS. By increasing the amount of corn that can be used to make biofuel, EPA’s proposal…
