Sugarcane ethanol already meets California low carbon fuel standard, says Brazilian Sugarcane Association

Green (Living) Review

Industry comments submitted to California Air Resources Board underscore sugarcane ethanol's recognized carbon reduction levels By Michael Smith (Veshengro) Sugarcane ethanol's carbon intensity is even lower than initially calculated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), according to comments submitted today by the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA). Sugarcane ethanol has a verifiable reduction in greenhouse gases of 90% compared to gasoline.

Any biofuel that causes clearing of natural ecosystems is likely to increase global warming," Fargione says. But not all biofuels are alike. As long as there is land conversion, though, biofuels do not diminish carbon dioxide emissions.

Biofuels Leaders: Three Big Dawgs in Biofuels

Living Green & Saving Energy

Named appropriately DuPont Danisco Cellulosic Ethanol (DDCE), this company aims to be nothing less than the world’s leading provider of technology for producing fuel-grade ethanol from cellulose. DDCE plans to license its patented technology to ethanol producers for deployment in the United States and elsewhere. The BP partnership is an interesting one since butanol is an advanced biofuel with better properties as a fuel than ethanol.
