GHG Benefits Increase as Biodiesel Grows

Posted on January 14th, 2014

When the biodiesel industry grows, so do the greenhouse gas benefits of displacing fossil fuel. The federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is the key driver for responsible growth of biodiesel and biomass-based diesel. Not only is the RFS driving gradual increases in overall volumes of biomass-based diesel, but it is accelerating industry diversity, and this has a compounding effect on the environmental and economic benefit.

For a brief period, the criticism of biofuels policy was that increasing the value of farm commodities might create economic incentives for farmers all around the world to grow more food commodities. The ever-improving quantification of international, indirect land use change is now showing that we can meet our goals for biodiesel production, and encourage more farmers to produce more food around the world, while still reducing greenhouse gases relative to sole reliance on fossil fuels.

A Concerned Scientist Speaks Out

Posted on February 21st, 2013

Someone asked me recently why there was so much confusion in Europe over the best feedstocks to use for biofuels and why there isn’t more unanimous support for crops that produce food and fuel? While it does not directly affect the US biodiesel market, it is an issue I have been watching with concern, because many stakeholders that should be supporting renewable fuels seem to be confused or are confusing the issue for others. Here is the response I crafted for my concerned colleague, and I decide to share it with you, because it may be important for everyone.
