Potential Modifications to the Low Carbon Fuel Standard

12.21.22 | Comments to CARB in response to the November 9, 2022 public workshop on “Potential Modifications to the Low Carbon Fuel Standard” (LCFS).  Comments focus on how preliminary concepts affecting the future of biomethane under the program threaten to significantly restrict renewable natural gas (RNG) production and supply.  Consequently, these actions will limit the use and availability of RNG in California for all sectors, particularly for heavy-duty trucks, which represents the highest and best use of RNG.

Therefore, CNGVC urged CARB to continue the inclusion of RNG as a credit-generating fuel under the LCFS, stating that such action will maintain the Program’s diversity and volume of low-carbon fuels options without arbitrary limits or radical policy changes.
