→ Proposed rule for renewable fuel standard program: grain sorghum oil pathway

Comments Close:

The Environmental Protection Agency 'is providing an opportunity to comment on an analysis of the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions associated with certain biofuels that are produced from grain sorghum oil.' Comments are specifically sought on the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed assessment that: (1) 'using distillers sorghum oil as feedstock results in no significant agricultural sector greenhouse gas emissions' (2) 'biodiesel and heating oil produced from distillers sorghum oil via a transesterification process... would meet the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions reduction threshold of 50 percent required for advanced biofuels, and biomass-based diesel under the Renewable Fuel Standard program,' and (3) 'renewable diesel, jet fuel, heating oil, naphtha, and liquefied petroleum gas produced from distillers sorghum oil via a hydrotreating process,' would also meet the Renewable Fuel Standard program requirements.
