Corinne Scown, Vice President for Life-Cycle, Economics and Agronomy and Director of Life-Cycle and Technoeconomic Analysis at the Joint BioEnergy Institute was recently appointed to serve on a National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee that will conduct the study Current Methods for Life Cycle Analyses of Low-Carbon Transportation Fuels in the United States. The committee will assess current methods for estimating lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with transportation fuels (liquid and non-liquid) for potential use in a national low-carbon fuels program.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are private, nonprofit institutions that provide expert advice on some of the most pressing challenges facing the nation and world. This work helps shape sound policies, inform public opinion, and advance the pursuit of science, engineering, and medicine. All information gathering meetings will be open to the public via the web, and presentations will be recorded and posted on the Committee’s website.
