Assessing land use change around biorefineries attributable to biofuels and the RFS2

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Northwestern University is aware that the United States Environmental Protection Agency must assess the environmental impact from biofuels as a part of Section 204 of the Energy Independence and Security Act but lacks a robust estimate of the fraction of land use change occurring in the United States.

Proposed Scope of Work
