Technical Information

California Low-Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS)

The LCFS applies to fuels used for transportation. The goal of the program is to reduce the carbon intensity (CI) of transportation fuel by the use of credits.  Fuels with a CI below a certain level generate credits, and fuels with a CI above that level consume credits.  See this guide for more detail.  Also see the California LCFS website.
