Bio and Renewable Fuel Use in California

The U.S. Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 introduced a Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) that requires the use of 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels by 2022, of which 16 billion must be produced from cellulosic material, while no more than 15 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol can be counted for purposes of meeting the RFS.
