US RFS Carve Outs
  • Only 15 bgy can come from cornstarch
  • 16 bgy must come from fuels derived from cellulose, hemicellulose or lignin
  • 1 bgy must come from biomass biodiesel
  • 4 bgy of other advanced biofuel may come from any fuel that qualifies as advanced biofuel – must reduce GHG 50%

Sorghum Niche in RFS

  • Starch from Grain Sorghum may qualify as an advanced biofuel (if 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions)
  • Replacing natural gas in renewable fuel manufacturing will be necessary to achieve the 50% reduction needed
  • Animal waste may represent a novel approach to replacing natural gas in ethanol manufacturing
  • Other bio-wastes may also fit this role
needed components
Needed Components
  • Ruminant livestock feeding
    • Source of manure for anaerobic digestion (AD)
    • Robust demand for wet distiller’s grains
    • Viable AD technology
  • Alternative Starch Crop production, current and potential
    • Grain sorghum
    • Barley
    • Feed wheat, oats, millet
  • Pathway to Advanced Biofuel status – current NODA published in Federal Register
