Abstract

We evaluate the effects of an E10 ethanol-blend policy on ethanol consumption and greenhouse gas reduction in California. Under an E10 policy in California, the ethanol consumption in 2020 under the base case scenario will be 1.68 billion gallons. The average greenhouse gas emission reduction in 2020 using an E10 policy for the present combination of feedstock will be 1.37% compared to the current E5.7 blend.

Keywords
