It would also stop more land from being converted into biofuel sources and invest over $10 billion to restore lost fish and wildlife habitat over the next decade. Nationally, more than 7 million acres have been plowed to make way for biofuel feed stock crops such as corn and soy since the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)standard came into force in 2007.
According to National Wildlife Federation Pres. Collin O'Mara, the legislation could correct a mistake Congress made 10 years ago. The bill would eliminate a loophole that allows older biofuel plants to bypass climate pollution standards, and would incentivize truly renewable biofuels, such as those derived from farm waste and plant cellulose.
"There's some things on the trading platform I think should happen no matter what. There seems to be a hoarding of RINs which inflates the price of RINs. Some have talked about limiting the participants who buy and sell, so you can get away from some of the speculation that's taking place," Pruitt told the Houston Chronicle.
Reforming the RINs program has been a top request of refiners and their allies in recent months, particularly after a major Philadelphia refiner declared bankruptcy in January, blaming RIN costs.
Pruitt also told the Houston Chronicle he supports letting fuel stations sell higher ethanol blends in the summer than they are currently allowed to, but only if such a change can withstand legal challenges. (Source: US EPA, Houston Chronicle, The Hill, 12 Mar., 2018)

"For farmers, ethanol blending equals corn demand. Farmers care about RIN values, not because we want them to be high, but because we want the RIN market mechanism to work freely to incentivize (ethanol) blending. Increased blending will, in turn, lower RIN values, exactly the way the RFS is intended to work. Government manipulation of the RIN market, on the other hand, disrupts the incentive to blend."
An Iowa State study concluded that:
a leading Renewable Fuel Standard reform proposal considered by policymakers would allow E15 sales throughout the year and implement a cap on D6 RIN prices between $0.10 to $0.20/RIN;
while year-round sales of E15 would encourage retailers to sell the fuel, capping D6 RIN prices would reduce consumption of E15 and E85:
a cap on D6 RIN prices between $0.10/gal to $0.20/gal would likely reduce the effective ethanol mandate from 15 billion gallons to about 14.3 billion gallons in 2018; and
unless increased ethanol exports compensate for the reduced mandate, corn prices would decrease under the proposal's D6 RIN price cap. (Source: NCGA, Farm Equipment, 9 Mar., 2018) Contact: NCGA, (202) 326-0644, www.ncga.com

With some modifications and scaling up, the proton battery technology could be used for medium-scale storage on electricity grids as well as powering electric vehicles, household storage of electricity from solar PV panels, and other applications.
The RMIT working prototype uses a carbon electrode as a hydrogen store, coupled with a reversible fuel cell to produce electricity. A major potential advantage of the proton battery is much higher energy efficiency than conventional hydrogen systems, making it comparable to lithium ion batteries.

The report points to strategies that can be used to cut consumption emissions, including smarter purchasing, buying local, and reducing waste. Food policy can make a big difference. Cities can also focus more on retrofitting older building to conserve power.
