SHARE Advanced Biofuel Pathway for Camelina Approved The Environmental Protection Agency has finalized its rule approving camelina oil as a new low-carbon feedstock under the Renewable Fuel Standard. With camelina oil added to the growing list of biodiesel feedstocks that meet the EPA’s standards for advanced biofuel – National Biodiesel Board Vice President of Federal Affairs Anne Steckel says the decision provides another option for producing sustainable, domestic biodiesel that displaces imported oil. She says that’s important for our energy security, our economy and for addressing climate change.The RFS requires a 50-percent greenhouse-gas emissions reduction for qualifying biomass-based diesel or advanced biofuel. A comprehensive evaluation of the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of the renewable fuel as compared to the lifecycle emissions of the gasoline or diesel fuel that it replaces is required to determine if a fuel pathway meets that threshold. A handful of biodiesel feedstocks qualify as advanced under the program – including recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 26, 2013 Home Energy Advanced Biofuel Pathway for Camelina Approved Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleHearing on Mid-Level Ethanol Blends Doesn’t Include Ethanol IndustryNext articleBudget Views and Estimates Letter Adopted by House Ag Committee Andy Eubank
