Assessment of Biofuels Policy: Effectiveness of Emissions Reductions

There are 270 million vehicles currently on the road that operate on liquid fuels. To reduce carbon emissions from these vehicles, the best strategy is to reduce carbon in the fuels that power them. Biofuels can reduce transportation carbon emissions, but how we most effectively capitalize on this potential is challenging. This white paper explores the carbon benefits to using biofuels. It looks at fuel ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel and gasoline, hydrogen and R80B20, plus evaluating the policies that affect these fuels, the availability of feedstocks to expand their market share and the vehicle and infrastructure capabilities of accommodating such an expansion.
