This week’s news roundup features a study that lays out a roadmap for energy-related decarbonization, as well as an optimistic analysis of the impact of Nebraska’s ethanol industry.
Both Sweden and Ontario, Canada are taking steps toward mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while researchers in South Dakota test the viability of ethanol production co-products as crop fertilizer. Get all the details in this week’s news roundup!
This two-part series by Jesper Hedal Kløverpris, Sustainability Manager at Novozymes, looks at how ethanol can help us reduce greenhouse gas emissions—both today and in the decades ahead. In part one, we covered the link between transportation fuels and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In part two, we’ll consider the role ethanol will ultimately play in tomorrow’s climate solutions, as well as what we can do today to help keep the world beneath the 2° threshold.
A new study finds that the introduction of E20 in Europe may be key to hitting EU greenhouse gas (GHG) emission targets, while the U.S. Department of Energy’s Billion-Ton Report expands on its previous work to update its biomass resource assessment. This, plus a looming Chinese grain shortage, and it’s been a busy week for the biofuel industry. Read on for this week’s biggest biofuel stories!
