A new status update of California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard was released by the University of California-Davis Institute of Transportation Studies.
Corn-based ethanol and ethanol pathways of mixed corn, sorghum and wheat made up 95% of the total biofuel volume in California last year but only 80% of the net credits under the standard, the institute found. California consumed 19% of all sugarcane ethanol imported to the country in 2012 but accounted for just 10% of the country's total fuel and corn ethanol use, probably because of the elevated status of Brazilian ethanol under the LCFS, the institute stated.
