Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS)

Executive Order S-1-07, the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) (issued on January 18, 2007), calls for a reduction of at least 10 percent in the carbon intensity of California's transportation fuels by 2020. It instructed the California Environmental Protection Agency to coordinate activities between the University of California, the California Energy Commission and other state agencies to develop and propose a draft compliance schedule to meet the 2020 target. Furthermore, it directed ARB to consider initiating a regulatory proceedings to establish and implement the LCFS. In response, ARB identified the LCFS as an early action item with a regulation which was to be adopted and implemented by 2010.

The types of transportation fuels to which the LCFS applies include:
(1) California reformulated gasoline (“gasoline” or “CaRFG”);
(2) California diesel fuel (“diesel fuel” or “ULSD”);
(3) Fossil compressed natural gas (“Fossil CNG”) or fossil liquefied natural gas (“Fossil LNG”);
(4) Biogas CNG or biogas LNG;
(5) Electricity;
(6) Compressed or liquefied hydrogen (“hydrogen”);
(7) A fuel blend containing hydrogen (“hydrogen blend”);
(8) A fuel blend containing greater than 10 percent ethanol by volume;
(9) A fuel blend containing biomass-based diesel;
(10) Denatured fuel ethanol (“E100”);
(11) Neat biomass-based diesel (“B100”); and
(12) Any other liquid or non-liquid fuel.
