UK’s NFU celebrating revision of official GHG emissions for OSR

In the UK, the National Farmers Union is celebrating a victory following a revision of official government figures on the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission levels of oilseed rape, originally submitted in the Department for Transport’s NUTS2 report. The previous report had not fully accounted for to improving agricultural practices and yield improvements, which would have prevented some regions of the UK selling oilseed rape for biodiesel production without a financial penalty and onerous paperwork. ...

RFA welcomes E10 in UK, recommends tighter blend range

In Washington, D.C., the Renewable Fuels Association thanked the United Kingdom’s Department of Transport for its draft regulations requiring the introduction of E10 ethanol blends beginning in September. However, in comments submitted to the agency, RFA recommended they adjust the minimum ethanol content for the E10 blend. Currently, the draft regulation allows fuel providers to comply with the E10 standard by supplying gasoline containing as little as 5.5% ethanol, which as RFA notes, “contain...

Bundestag clears the way for more climate protection in transport

In Germany, UFOP reports that the German Bundestag (the federal parliament) decided to increase the greenhouse gas reduction obligation for fuels. The law provides for an even increase from 6% today to 7% in 2022 and to 25% in 2030. UFOP had repeatedly called for a more ambitious GHG quota system. The aim was to give domestic agriculture and the biofuel industry more planning certainty in the medium term, while at the same time giving new options such as biofuels from residues, synthetic fuels a...

ODOT delays STIP funding vote due to intense public interest

What a long, strange STIP Trip it’s been. Thanks to a big effort by community organizers, Oregonians will now have a few more days to do their homework and take part in the most highly scrutinized STIP funding process in recent memory. The STIP, or Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, is the Oregon Department of Transportation’s capital project list and it accounts for $2.2 billion in funding over a three-year period. The 2024-2027 STIP has gotten a lot of attention in part because it...

New Green Building Tax Credit is a Progressive Effort

At a time when the building industry is principally concerned with the impact of COVID-19 and the luster is off green building, the Montgomery County Council last Tuesday unanimously approved legislation “to accelerate the construction of highly energy efficient buildings and green retrofitting of existing buildings.” Bill 10-20 dramatically upgrades the Maryland county’s existing green building real property tax credit, prioritizing energy reduction in the name of GHG emission reduction, in new...

EPA Proposes First Greenhouse Gas Emissions Limits for Aircraft

Last Wednesday the Environmental Protection Agency proposed greenhouse gas emissions standards for airplanes used in commercial aviation and large business jets. “This standard is the first time the U.S. has ever proposed regulating greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft,” according to EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. And as much as I have railed against more and regressive environmental regulation in this blog, what is pragmatically proposed may be good for the planet and is definitely good fo...

Low obiodiese weighing on Malaysia and Indonesia’s biodiesel mandates

In Malaysia, Bernama news agency reports continued low crude oil prices remain a key pressure point for biodiesel blending mandates in both Malaysia and Indonesia who seek to increase energy security and support palm oil producers. Despite lower demand for fuel and biodiesel in particular, the founder and CEO of Sumwin Group said the pandemic saw GHG emissions fall more than 5.5% globally which has shown the world that a new greener economy is possible.

Energy Transition in Times of Coronavirus: A Challenge and an Opportunity

By Pierroberto Folgiero, CEO of NextChem Special to The Digest It is clear to everyone today that the coronavirus outbreak will produce a relevant crisis at a global level, triggering a serious economic slowdown and it seems likely that the economic downturn will have as an immediate effect a drop in carbon dioxide emissions. In Italy in the first quarter of 2020 the estimate of this drop is around 5-7% in comparison with the same period of 2019, while some analysis show that in China CO2 emiss...

El Niño has arrived. What does that mean for weather in 2019?

El Niño has arrived in 2019. So far, it's pretty weak. That doesn't mean it will stay that way. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced Thursday that this natural climate phenomenon -- which is triggered by warmer temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean and can significantly affect weather in the U.S. -- will likely persist through the spring. But what happens next is still unclear."We don't have a good handle on where this goes the rest of the year,...

Replacing petroleum diesel by 2030 with biomass-based diesel seen feasible

In California, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stated goal of eliminating petroleum diesel emissions in California by 2030 is achievable through the growth in the market for clean, sustainable diesels, according to a new report from the California Advanced Biofuels Alliance. Transitioning to sustainable diesels will represent a 71 percent decrease in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to those from climate-changing petroleum diesel, the report states. Furthermore, through a mixed approach of efficiency...

New study shows RFS2 reduced GHG emissions by 600 million metric tons since 2007

In Washington, new study released Wednesday finds that the expanded Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) has been a tremendous success in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with nearly 600 million metric tons of GHG reduction since 2007. Actual GHG reductions under the RFS2 have far surpassed the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) original expectations of 422 million metric tons, according to the study. The analysis was conducted by Life Cycle Associates, a California-based scientific consu...
