DeCicco: Transportation GHG reduction policy should focus upstream on fuel supply rather than downstream on choice of fuels in vehicles

Green Car Congress

John DeCicco at the University of Michigan argues that to reduce transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions, the proper policy focus should be upstream in sectors that provide the fuel, rather than downstream on the choice of fuels in the automobile. More specifically, he suggests that other than supporting fundamental R&D, programs to promote alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) “ are not currently warranted for climate protection.

U-Mich researcher’s first-principles analysis challenges conventional carbon accounting for biofuels; implications for climate policy

Green Car Congress

For biofuels, because biogenic carbon is automatically credited within a product lifecycle, the boundary effectively excludes vehicle end-use CO 2 emissions. In a paper that could have a significant impact on climate policies for transportation fuels, Dr. John M. Thus, policies have been designed under the assumption that carbon accounting need only address production-related, fossil-derived CO 2 and other GHGs while excluding biogenic CO 2 emissions throughout the fuel cycle.
