2 EISA Mandated Biofuel Production Targets Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS2) Conventional (Starch) Biofuel Biomass-based diesel Cellulosic Biofuels Other Advanced Biofuels 15 BGY cap on conventional (starch) biofuel Advanced Biofuels (include cellulosic biofuels other than starch-based ethanol) Production Targets (Billions of Gallons) EISA defines Cellulosic Biofuel as renewable fuel derived from any cellulose, hemicellulose, or lignin that is derived from renewable biomass and that has lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions that are at least 60 percent less than baseline lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions. The EPA interprets this to include cellulosic-based diesel fuel. EISA defines Advanced Biofuel as renewable fuel, other than ethanol derived from corn starch, that has lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions that are at least 50 percent less than baseline lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions. This includes biomass-based diesel, cellulosic biofuels, and other advanced fuels such as sugarcane-based ethanol.
