The Environmental Protection Agency has released its updated renewable-fuel standard and confirmed that ethanol emits 21% less in greenhouse gases than gasoline
when global indirect land-use change is included. "EPA was right to recognize that ethanol from all sources provides significant carbon benefits compared to gasoline," said Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen. "As structured, the RFS is a workable program that will achieve the stated policy goals of reduced oil dependence, economic opportunity and environmental stewardship."
