Proving GHG reduction to the U.S. EPA has been greatly simplified to essentially four numbers: bushels produced, natural gas and electricity consumed and gallons produced. Since the current renewable fuel standard went into effect, existing corn ethanol plants have been limited to their grandfathered volumes—unless they could prove that any increased gallons would beat a 20 percent GHG reduction threshold compared to the baseline gasoline. This fall, EPA introduced its new Efficient Producer Petition Process. The first nine plants were approved in December and another 10 in January. This webinar will describe how EP3 works, what information is needed to apply and what the reporting requirements are, once approved. We’ll also take a look at the best technologies being deployed that help producers meet energy efficiency and yield improvement goals.
