Achieving Clean Fuels Success: How to Meet California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard

By Natural Resources Defense Council.

Over the next ten years, California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), a program requiring the oil industry to cut its carbon pollution and to increase the use of clean fuels, could triple the use of alternative fuels from today's levels. That's according to a report by Promotum, California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard: Evaluation of the Potential to Meet and Exceed the Standards, commissioned by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). The report provides an evaluation of how the standard will expand the growth of known, existing low-carbon fuels and technologies.
