Topics / Low-carbon fuels

Low Carbon Fuel Standards (LCFS) are performance based regulations aiming to reduce the lifecycle carbon intensity of the transport fuel supply. By imposing minimum carbon reductions on fuel suppliers that increase over time, they force some combination of the adoption of low carbon alternative fuels and reductions in the carbon intensity of conventional fossil fuel supplies.
