For a full transcript of this episode click here.

In this episode of CleanLaw Joe Goffman speaks with Clean Air Task Force senior counsel Jonathan Lewis about bioenergy. They discuss the history of biofuel mandates, the challenges of lifecycle analysis, the problems associated with land-use, the difficulty in meeting annual mandates, and talk about what US biofuel policy should really be focused on. At around the 30-minute mark the conversation moves from the transportation sector to power generation. And, if you’re interested in a deeper discussion on the Renewable Fuel Standard program and lessons we’ve learned from this policy, we’ll publish Part II of this conversation in September.
