Although the majority of the on-road vehicle fleet in the United States is fueled by gasoline, diesel combustion makes up an overwhelming share of vehicle air pollution emissions. Air pollution emissions can be affected by blending biodiesel into diesel fuel.

The US should ensure almost all new cars and light vehicles sold are electric by the end of this decade, and stop using fossil fuels for power generation by 2035, to cut greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris agreement, a new analysis has found.

This paper outlines design considerations for an effective low-carbon cement standard in the United States, including how to set benchmarks and stringency, how to address leakage and competitiveness, and how to structure cost containment policies.

Steel production in the United States accounts for around 100 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions. Available and emerging technologies have the ability to significantly decarbonize the steel industry.

A frenzy of new mine projects and proposals in some of the world’s gassiest coal seams could emit enough methane to rival the current CO2 emissions from coal plants in the United States, according to new data and modeling from Global Energy Monitor.

This study analyzes the number, type, and distribution of EV chargers needed to meet Colorado’s 2030 electric vehicle sales goals. It quantifies the public, workplace, and home charger needs for passenger vehicles at the county level and estimates the costs to meet these infrastructure needs.

This analysis finds that cost reductions in new electric vehicles (EVs) will lead to decreased used EV prices and cost parity with used gasoline vehicles for low-income households in the 2025-2030 time period. Higher rates of depreciation for first owners of EVs will lead to larger benefits for lower-income second owners.

This report quantifies Los Angeles electric vehicle charging infrastructure needs and associated energy demand citywide in 2030 to align with the city’s goal of 25% zero-emission vehicle stock by 2025 and 80% by 2035. It also quantifies needs in specific areas that are poised to become zero-emission areas or fully fossil fuel free by 2030.

In January 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a domestic aircraft carbon dioxide (CO2) standard that closely follows the international standard adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in 2016.

The past four years have been chaotic for US agriculture. Trade wars, initiated by the Don­ald Trump administration in 2017, and the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic have led to volatile domestic and international market conditions and considerable uncertainty about future prices and farm businesses’ financial situations.
