Transportaton Fuel

Bioenergy has an important role to play in the transportation sector by providing the only carbon negative fuels in existence.  Organic waste can be converted to biomethane, renewable hydrogen, or renewable electricity to fuel vehicles on or off the road and to provide Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF).  Biomethane can be used to fuel heavy duty and long haul trucks where there is not yet a feasible battery or fuel cell option.  For battery electric and fuel cell vehicles, organic waste and biogas can be converted to carbon negative electricity or hydrogen, the lowest carbon transportation fuels possible.

California Air Board Proposes Changes to Low Carbon Fuel Standard

By Julia Levin | August 11, 2022

The Low Carbon Fuels Standard Program has helped to reduce the carbon intensity of on-road vehicle fuels by nearly 10 percent over the last decade, largely thanks to increased biofuels production. Unfortunately, LCFS credit prices have dropped more than 50 percent, which threatens to slow California’s progress in reducing transportation climate emissions. To address the…
