California Low Carbon Fuel Standard

Reducing Global Warming Pollution from California’s Transportation Fuels

On April 23, 2009, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) passed the world's first low carbon fuel standard. The regulation, which likely will serve as a model for other states and the federal government, requires fuel producers to reduce "lifecycle" heat-trapping emissions from gasoline and diesel fuels 10 percent by 2020.

The California low carbon fuel standard also notably accounts for emissions caused by deforestation and other land use changes associated with the increased production of crop-based biofuels.
