Growth Energy Calls New CAFE Standards A Missed Opportunity

by Erin Voegele (Ethanol Producer Magazine)  The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on June 7 issued a final rule setting new corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards. Growth Energy said the agency has again missed the opportunity to recognize the importance of high-octane, low-carbon ethanol.  

The NHTSA’s rule increases fuel economy for passenger cars by 2% per year for model years 2027-2031 and for light trucks by 2% for year for model years 2019-2031. The agency said these increases will bring the average light-duty vehicle fuel economy up to approximately 50.4 miles per gallon by model year 2031. The improved fuel economy is expected to save owners of passenger cars and light trucks more than $600 in fuel over the lifetime of their vehicles.

The rule increases the fuel efficiency of heavy-duty pickup trucks and vans by 10% per year for model years 2030-2032, and 8% per year for model years 2033-2035. The increased fuel efficiency is expected to result in a fleetwide average of approximately 35 miles per gallon by model year 2035, saving owners of heavy-duty pickups and vans more than $700 in fuel over the lifetime of their vehicles.

...

The final rule does not address the potential of high-octane, low-carbon ethanol or other biofuels as a way to improve fuel economy. Within the rule, however, the NHTSA does respond to a variety of comments it received from members of the biofuels industry during the rulemaking’s public comment period. 

The NHTSA said it received comments from representatives of ethanol and biofuel producers that objected to the agency’s handing of battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The commenters raised energy security concerns related to reduced demand for and reliance on U.S.-produced alternative fuels and increased reliance on foreign supply chains. Commenters also stated the NHTSA failed to consider other fuels like ethanol and biofuels as a way to improve fuel economy in its analysis as part of a holistic approach to reducing U.S. gasoline consumption, failed to consider Renewable Fuel Standard regulations, and recommended the agency consider high-octane renewable fuels as a way to improve fuel economy or conventional internal combustion engines (ICEs). 

In its response to these comments, the NHTSA addressed concerns over its treatment of BEVs and noted that its analyses account for the U.S. EPA’s approval of E15 in all model year 2001 and newer gasoline vehicles produced for the U.S. markets. The agency also said it considers flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) that exist in the reference baseline fleet in its analysis, but notes that FFVs are also subject to restrictions in U.S. law that require the agency to consider dual fueled automobiles to be operated only on gasoline or diesel fuel in setting CAFE standards. 

...

The NHTSA also responded to comments regarding the of fuel efficiency benefits of high-octane, low-carbon ethanol, particularly when used with high compression ratio (HCR) technology. “While we agree that a higher-octane fuel can work to improve engine fuel efficiency, we do not include it in our analysis,” the agency wrote within the role. “Our engine maps were developed with the use of 87 octane Tier 3 fuel, which represents the most commonly available fuel used by consumers. As we have stated previously, regulation of fuels is outside the scope of NHTSA’s authority. Accordingly, we made no updates to the fuel assumed used in the engine map models.”

Excerpt from Growth Energy: Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today issued new vehicle fuel economy standards

“This is yet another missed opportunity by NHTSA to recognize the importance of high-octane, low-carbon bioethanol blends in meeting the administration’s climate goals. Using high-octane midlevel bioethanol blends in conjunction with future engine technology holds tremendous potential for increasing vehicle efficiency and ultimately reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  The carbon intensity of American bioethanol continues to go down, making it more and more useful as a decarbonization tool for on-road applications. Investing in biofuels now will not only decrease carbon emissions from the cars on the road today, but set the stage for greater carbon reductions years from now. The President himself said that ‘you can’t get to net zero without biofuels’ but this final rule will make it harder for American biofuels to live up to their potential.  

“Ultimately, as we’ve said before, this proposal unfortunately ignores the potential of bioethanol to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We will continue to build the market for American bioethanol and grow the biofuels sector into an even more critical part of America’s low-carbon economy.”  READ MORE

 

Excerpt from Associated Press:  New vehicles sold in the U.S. will have to average about 38 miles per gallon of gasoline in 2031 in real-world driving, up from about 29 mpg this year, under new federal rules unveiled Friday by the Biden administration.

The final rule will increase fuel economy by 2% per year for model years 2027 to 2031 for passenger cars, while SUVs and other light trucks will increase by 2% per year for model years 2029 to 2031, according to requirements released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The final figures are below a proposal released last year. Administration officials said the less stringent requirements will allow the auto industry flexibility to focus on electric vehicles, adding that higher gas-mileage requirements would have imposed significant costs on consumers without sufficient fuel savings to offset them.

...

Even as he promotes EVs, Biden needs cooperation from the auto industry and political support from auto workers, a key political voting bloc, as the Democratic president seeks reelection in November. The United Auto Workers union has endorsed Biden but has said it wants to make sure the transition to electric vehicles does not cause job losses and that the industry pays top wages to workers who build EVs and batteries.

 

Biden’s likely opponent, former President Donald Trump, and other Republicans have denounced Biden’s push for EVs as unfair for consumers and an example of government overreach.

The new standards will save almost 70 billion gallons of gasoline through 2050, preventing more than 710 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions by midcentury, the Biden administration said.

...

The highway safety agency said it has sought to line up its regulations so they match new Environmental Protection Agency rules that tighten standards for tailpipe emissions. But if there are discrepancies, automakers likely will have to follow the most stringent regulation.

...

Fuel economy figures used by The Associated Press reflect real-world driving conditions that include factors such as wind resistance, hills and use of air-conditioning. Because of those factors, the real-world numbers are lower than mileage figures put forward by NHTSA.

New passenger cars would have to average nearly 49 miles per gallon in 2031 under the new rule, up from about 36.5 miles per gallon this year.

...

John Bozzella, president and CEO of the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, a leading industry group, said the Biden administration “appears to have landed on a CAFE rule that works with the other recent federal tailpipe rules.’' Bozzella was using an acronym for the fuel standards, which are officially known as the corporate average fuel economy rules.

Dan Becker at the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group, slammed the new rules as inadequate.

...

The mileage standards are “a relic of the 1970s,″ Bozzella said, “a policy to promote energy conservation and energy independence by making internal combustion vehicles more efficient. But those vehicles are already very efficient. And EVs don’t combust anything. They don’t even have a tailpipe.″  READ MORE

 

Excerpt from U.S. Department of Transportation: New standards will save Americans hundreds of dollars at the pump over the lifetime of their vehicles

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today issued new vehicle fuel economy standards that will save Americans more than $23 billion in fuel costs while reducing pollution. This rule is in accordance with continuous energy security efforts that date back to the 1970s, when the average vehicle got about 13 miles to the gallon. 

In this final rule, fuel economy will increase 2% per year for model years 2027-2031 for passenger cars, while light trucks will increase 2% per year for model years 2029-2031. These increases will bring the average light-duty vehicle fuel economy up to approximately 50.4 miles per gallon by model year 2031, saving passenger car and light truck owners more than $600 in fuel over the lifetime of their vehicles 

Heavy-duty pickup truck and van fuel efficiency will increase 10% per year for model years 2030-2032 and 8% per year for model years 2033-2035. This will result in a fleetwide average of approximately 35 miles per gallon by model year 2035, saving heavy-duty pickup and van owners more than $700 in fuel over the lifetime of their vehicles. 

“Not only will these new standards save Americans money at the pump every time they fill up, they will also decrease harmful pollution and make America less reliant on foreign oil,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. “These standards will save car owners more than $600 in gasoline costs over the lifetime of their vehicle.”

These improved standards will save almost 70 billion gallons of gasoline through 2050, preventing more than 710 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions by 2050. 

“President Biden’s economic and climate agenda has catalyzed an American clean energy and manufacturing boom,” said President Biden’s National Climate Advisor Ali Zaidi. “From day one, the President has centered America’s workers, and unions that built our middle class, in this transformative agenda, positioning the U.S. auto sector as a leader in the world. The President’s agenda is working. On factory floors across the nation, our autoworkers are making cars and trucks that give American drivers more choices today than ever before. These fuel economy standards, rigorously aligned with our investments and standards across the federal government, deliver on the Biden-Harris Administration’s promise to build on this momentum and continue to spur job creation, and move faster and faster to tackle the climate crisis.”

“When Congress established the Corporate Average Fuel Economy program in the 1970s, the average vehicle got about 13 miles to the gallon. Under these new standards, the average light-duty vehicle will achieve nearly four times that at 50 miles per gallon,” NHTSA Deputy Administrator Sophie Shulman said. “These new fuel economy standards will save our nation billions of dollars, help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and make our air cleaner for everyone. Americans will enjoy the benefits of this rule for decades to come.” 

The agency engaged with a broad set of stakeholders while crafting the final rule, including consumers, unions, automakers, states, environmental advocates, and others. 

NHTSA’s new fuel economy standards complement the Environmental Protection Agency’s emissions standards for similar vehicle fleets. NHTSA worked closely with the EPA to optimize the effectiveness of its standards while minimizing compliance costs, consistent with applicable statutory factors. 

The final rule sets increased standards that are consistent with Congress’ direction to conserve fuel and promote American energy independence and American automotive manufacturing, while providing flexibility to industry on how to achieve those targets. Though NHTSA does not consider electric and other alternative fuels when setting standards, manufacturers may use all available technologies – including advanced internal combustion engines, hybrid technologies and electric vehicles – for compliance. 

Passenger cars are generally sedans, station wagons, and two-wheel drive crossovers and SUVs, while light trucks are generally four-wheel drive SUVs, pickups, minivans, and passenger/cargo vans. Heavy-duty pickup trucks and vans are generally Class 2b/3 work trucks, fleet SUVs, work vans, and cutaway chassis-cab vehicles.

Excerpt from Detroit News: The CAFE rule is the last of three major federal rules that will regulate pollution from consumer vehicles.

The other rules, which were similarly scaled back amid industry feedback, came from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. The EPA rule regulates allowable carbon dioxide emissions from vehicle tailpipes, and the Energy Department rule adjusted an important calculation impacting the fuel economy scores for EVs.

Despite issuing a less-stringent final EPA rule, agency administrator Michael A. Regan still called the regulation the "strongest vehicle pollution technology standard ever finalized in United States history" during a news conference in March.

Even with the CAFE rule now finalized, one more decision on vehicle emissions — and perhaps the most important one — remains for Biden.

California is seeking federal approval for even tougher standards beginning in 2026. Their standards, which 11 other states have already committed to copying, would effectively mandate a full shift to electric vehicles in those states.  READ MORE

New Study Shows Plug-in Hybrid Flex Fuel Vehicle Has Major Economic, Climate Advantages Over Battery EVs

(Renewable Fuels Association)  The Renewable Fuels Association today released a study documenting the economic and environmental benefits of the world’s first plug-in electric hybrid flex fuel vehicle (PHEFFV). After rigorous emissions testing, lifecycle greenhouse gas analysis, and nearly 34,000 miles of real-world driving, the study concludes that a PHEFFV offers distinct advantages over fully electric vehicles.

Last year, RFA purchased a 2022 Ford Escape plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and immediately converted it to a flex fuel vehicle capable of operating on gasoline and any blend of denatured ethanol up to 85 percent. After a 15-month study on the vehicle, RFA found some impressive results. When using E85, the PHEFFV delivered:

  • Reductions in lifecycle GHG emissions that rival, or outperform, the GHG reductions achievable with many battery electric vehicles;
  • Substantial reductions (when compared to gasoline-powered vehicles) in emissions of harmful tailpipe pollutants like nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and carbon monoxide (CO);
  • Lower cost of ownership and operation (purchase price, fuel cost per mile) than a similar BEV; and
  • No meaningful loss in fuel economy, with the Escape experiencing just a 1.5 percent reduction in miles-per-gallon compared to the EPA estimated rate using E10.

“While some have suggested a massive and immediate shift to BEVs is the best solution for decarbonizing personal transportation, other solutions—like low-carbon ethanol blends—offer enormous potential to achieve meaningful GHG reductions in both the near term and the long term," the report states. "Combining plug-in technology and flex fuel capability makes this vehicle the most adaptable and flexible in the world. It can be refueled with any fuel at any time, offering optimal convenience and affordability to the consumer. The PHEFFV overcomes many of the barriers to BEV adoption commonly cited by consumers, including limited driving range, high purchase price, reliability, and lack of refueling (recharging) infrastructure.”

The RFA report comes at a time when automakers and consumers are expressing increasing doubts about an all-BEV future and turning back toward plug-in hybrid and gasoline hybrid vehicles as a more practical climate solution.

“With this project, we sought to demonstrate that pairing plug-in hybrid electric technology with ethanol flex fuels offers an invaluable opportunity to reduce transportation-related GHG emissions without sacrificing consumer convenience, affordability, and optionality,” said RFA President and CEO Geoff Cooper. “Our 15-month study of the Escape shows that, rather than pitting electric vehicles and internal combustion engines against each other, policymakers should be embracing market-based approaches that combine the best of both worlds. There are incredible synergies between low-carbon liquid fuels like ethanol and plug-in hybrid technology, yet today’s federal and state vehicle emissions standards actively discourage these sorts of creative solutions that put the consumer in the driver’s seat. Our hope is that policymakers look closely at the lessons learned from this study as they consider future action on tailpipe emissions standards and other regulations. Low-carbon, low-cost ethanol has an important role to play—alongside of electrification and other technology-neutral solutions—in decarbonizing our transportation sector.”

The RFA report also offers several recommendations for automakers, as well as federal and state lawmakers and regulators.  READ MORE

Excerpt from Renewable Fuels Association:  Recommendations RFA’s 15-month study of the economic and environmental benefits of a plug-in hybrid electric flex fuel vehicle resulted in a number of important insights and findings. The lessons learned from this study should be used to instruct future policy, regulatory, and research developments. Specifically, RFA offers the following recommendations:

▪ Federal and state agencies should adopt full “well-to-wheels” (WTW) lifecycle analysis to assess the GHG emissions impacts of various fuel and vehicle combinations. Agencies should abandon biased and unscientific approaches that consider only one narrow phase of the fuel and vehicle lifecycle (e.g., looking only at tailpipe emissions).

▪ Federal and state regulatory requirements, incentives, tax credits, and subsidies aimed at decarbonizing light-duty vehicles should be applied equitably and based on full WTW lifecycle emission reductions. For example, incentives and compliance credits under federal tailpipe emissions and fuel economy standards should be determined based on the full WTW lifecycle of fuel and vehicle combinations, including consideration of electricity generation sources and emissions related to battery mineral extraction and refining.

▪ Federal and state regulatory agencies should streamline and simplify regulations regarding the certification of flex fuel conversion kits.

▪ Automakers should refocus on offering ethanol flex fuel compatibility in a broad range of PHEV and gasoline hybrid makes and models. Federal policymakers should consider incentives to stimulate increased FFV production.

▪ Automakers, auto industry research cooperatives, and government laboratories should conduct technical research and analysis on the costs and benefits of marrying plug-in hybrid technology with ethanol flex fuel technology on a broad array of vehicle and engine platforms.

▪ Automakers, auto industry research cooperatives, and government laboratories should conduct additional research to demonstrate and quantify the efficiency and synergies of using high-octane fuels like E30 and E85 flex fuel in optimized engines. READ MORE
