EPA Reaffirms Sugarcane Biofuel is Advanced Renewable Fuel with 61% Less Emissions than Gasoline
Date:2/3/2010

billion gallons (45 billion liters) in 2010, rising to 36 billion gallons (136 billion liters) in 2022, of which 21 billion gallons per year would have to be one of three types of advanced biofuels: cellulosic, biomass diesel, and "other advanced," that meet required GHG reduction thresholds as determined by the EPA.

Today, the EPA affirmed that sugarcane ethanol meets the "other advanced" category in the RFS2, although with a GHG reduction level that exceeds the requirement for all categories as well. Specifically, the EPA's calculations show that sugarcane ethanol from Brazil reduces GHG emissions compared to gasoline by 61%, using a 30-year payback for indirect land use change (iLUC) emissions.

"We are pleased that the EPA took the time to improve the regulations, particularly by more accurately quantifying the full lifecycle greenhouse emission reductions of biofuels. The EPA's reaffirmation of sugarcane ethanol's superior GHG reduction confirms that sustainably produced biofuels can play an important role in climate mitigation. Perhaps this recognition will sway those who have sought to raise trade barriers against clean energy here in the U.S. and around the world. Sugarcane ethanol is a first generation biofuel with third generation performance," noted Velasco.

Last year, UNICA submitted comments to the EPA with abundant scientifically credible evidence showing that -- even including indirect emissions -- sugarcane ethanol has a reduction of GHG emissions of 73-82% compared with gasoline, on a 30- or 100-year time horizon respectively. The RFS2 requires the use of at least 4 billion gallons (over 15 billion liters) of "other advanced" renewable fuels a year by 2022. In 2010, the RFS requires 200 million gallons of this type of advanced renewable fuel.

"While we are reviewing the final ruling, it is clear that the EPA has incorporated many of the comments
