OPINION  I have introduced the Adopt GREET Act, legislation that would require the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to update its greenhouse-gas modeling for ethanol and biodiesel. Specifically the bill would require the EPA to adopt either the Argonne National Lab’s “Greenhouse Gas and Regulated Emissions and Energy Use in Transportation” model – known as the GREET model – or the 2019 U.S. Department of Agriculture methodology within 90 days of enactment. For biodiesel the EPA would be required adopt the GREET model. The EPA would then be required to update its modeling every five years or report to Congress to affirm its modeling is current or otherwise explain why no updates were made.
