Technology eyed by CARB include zero-emission electric and hydrogen vehicles. But the revised standard paves the bridge to zero-emissions with bio blends, which CARB said its analysis reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50 to as much as 81 percent compared to normal diesel. The regulation also establishes requirements and fuel specifications for biodiesel to ensure that NOx do not increase and instead decrease. Five years ago, the U.S. EPA established the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) that categorizes biodiesel qualifies as an “Advanced Biofuel.” At the time, EPA's analysis indicated that biodiesel can reduce carbon ...
