Workshop to Discuss Opportunities for Additional Greenhouse Gas Reductions From Petroleum Transportation Fuels

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a workshop on opportunities for additional greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions from petroleum transportation fuels.

DATE:                August 20, 2018
TIME:                 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
LOCATION:       California Environmental Protection Agency
                          Air Resources Board | Coastal Hearing Room
                          1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814

Purpose of Workshop

While California remains on track to achieve our 2030 GHG targets, transportation sector GHG emissions have increased 4 percent from 2014 to 2016 largely driven by increases in emissions from gasoline used in on-road vehicles.  This workshop is an opportunity for California agencies to describe the policies and programs that are being implemented to achieve GHG reductions in the transportation sector.  The workshop will also provide a forum for experts to discuss opportunities for additional GHG reductions from the production and combustion of petroleum transportation fuels in California.

Pursuant to Resolution 17-46 of the 2017 Scoping Plan Update, the Executive Officer must provide an update to the Board regarding any additional cost-effective technologically feasible GHG reduction measures.  This workshop will also help inform this update.

Following the workshop, stakeholders will have an opportunity to provide written comments during an informal comment period, which will conclude at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time on Friday, August 24, 2018.

All interested stakeholders are invited to attend.  A live webcast of the workshop will be available for those unable to attend in person.  Materials that will be discussed at the workshop will be available by 9:00 am Pacific time on Monday, August 20, 2018.
