Helping the EPA Evaluate Emissions From Biofuel Cultivation

Project Title: EPA Stratus: Alternative Fuels and Climate Change (TO4)

Transitioning land from forest or grassland to cultivation for biofuels has implications for greenhouse gas emissions. As part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Renewable Fuel Standard 2 rulemaking process, Winrock is responsible for evaluating and analyzing the emissions implications of land conversion taking place around the world as a result of increased demand for biofuels.
