Boosting Low-Carbon Biofuels in California:
Legislative Lunch Briefing
Berkeley and UCLA Law released the new report Planting Fuels: How California Can Boost Local, Low-Carbon Biofuel Production in December 2015. The report suggests policies that could boost local production of low-carbon biofuel, which can reduce emissions through shorter feedstock transportation routes, development of carbon reducing co-products like biochar compost, and reduced wildfire risk. Local production can provide jobs and revenue in otherwise economically challenged parts of the state, harvesting biofuel feedstocks from a variety of renewable sources, including corn, sugarcane and food waste, among others.
Please join us for an in-person briefing on the report findings on Friday, January 22nd, from noon to 1:30pm. Lunch will be served. The event will feature the following speakers:
- Lisa Mortenson, chief executive officer at Community Fuels
- Tim Olson, energy and fuels program manager at the California Energy Commission
- Cliff Rechtschaffen, senior adviser to Governor Brown
- Floyd Vergara, industrial strategies division chief, California Air Resources Board
January 22, 2016, 12:00pm-1:30pm
Governor's Office Council Room, Capitol Building, Sacramento
