Enhanced prospects for EU and Japan (new governmental target for renewable energy of 20% by 2030) According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) ethanol from sugarcane is the only fuel that would allow to meet US RFS-2 requirements with 44% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to gasoline
