Court sides with California on LCFS

Ruling by he 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals Court allows the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to continue the implementation of the LCFS.

A panel of federal judges overturned an earlier ruling that said California's "Low Carbon Fuel Standard" discriminated against out-of-state producers.

The ruling by the 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals Court allows the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to continue the implementation of the LCFS, which is a key piece of California's landmark global warming law meant to cut the state's dependence on petroleum and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

A joint statement from the Renewable Fuels Assn. and the Growth Energy said that are evaluating both the decision and the dissent and are "contemplating all legal options.”
