Ethanol Groups Take California to Court on Low Carbon Fuel Standard


Green Car Advisor - December 28, 2009

Renew­able Fuels Asso­ci­a­tion and Growth Ener­gy, two lead­ing ethanol advo­ca­cy groups, have tak­en Cal­i­for­nia to fed­er­al court chal­leng­ing the con­sti­tu­tion­al­i­ty of its low-car­bon fuel stan­dard. If the Cal­i­for­nia Air Resources Board stan­dard is adopt­ed by the state, the rule may slow expan­sion of ethanol in the U.S., since Cal­i­for­nia often takes the lead in clean-air reg­u­la­tions.
