Science – The United States is unlikely to produce enough biofuel by 2022 to meet some congressionally mandated targets, according to an analysis released today by a National Research Council (NRC) committee. And even if the goals are met, there’s no guarantee that using liquid fuels produced from crops, grasses, and trees will reduce the country’s overall greenhouse gas emissions. One member of the panel, however, says the analysis may be overly pessimistic, because it was not able to tap into some of the most recent data, or information about new technologies that companies may be protecting as trade secrets.
