Biodiesel and renewable diesel fuel are the biggest carbon cutting technologies from the transportation sector, edging out ethanol and beating the benefits of electrified cars, trucks and buses by 3:1.
According to Diesel Technology Forum Exec, Dir. Allen Schaeffer, "Cumulatively, over the period of 2011-2020, California's consumption of biodiesel and renewable diesel fuels accounted for 43 pct (over 32 million tons) of all greenhouse gas eliminated from the transportation sector, while battery-electric transportation options accounted for only 13 percent (10 million tons)."
