Alternative Fuels Study

Archived: 06/30/2011

The Florida Energy and Climate Commission (FECC) must conduct a study to evaluate lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with all renewable fuels including biodiesel, renewable diesel, biobutanol, and ethanol derived from any source. The FECC must also evaluate and recommend a requirement that all renewable fuels sold in Florida reduce lifecycle GHG emissions by an average percentage. The FECC may also evaluate the benefits associated with creating, banking, transferring, and selling GHG emissions credits among fuel refiners, blenders, and importers. The FECC must submit specific recommendations to the state legislature by December 31, 2010. (Reference Florida Statutes 526.207)
