Harmonizing Low Carbon Fuel Standards

Harmonizing fuel programs between state, federal, and foreign jurisdictions is useful to ensure the optimum reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Similar fuel program frameworks reduce the possibility of fuel shuffling across different jurisdictions, and they reduce the administrative burden for both regulated parties and regulatory agencies. Program elements that should be considered for harmonization include LCA analysis, sustainability requirements, reporting requirements, and credit calculations. For LCA analysis, the model used for calculation (CA-GREET, GHGenius, etc.) is not important as long as all facets of fuel production (feedstock production, feedstock transportation, fuel production, fuel transportation and storage, and ILUC) and fuel use are similarly considered. The harmonization of LCFS programs is not without risks. Harmonization must not be achieve...
