Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 54 / Friday, March 20, 2015 / Notices cake contains glucosinolates, which may be toxic to animals in large concentrations.37 However, the heat produced from crushing pennycress seeds may reduce the toxicity of the press cake,38 or pennycress press cake could be mixed in low amounts with other seed meal for use as animal feed.39 Alternatively, pennycress press cake could be used as a biofumigant.40 Based on our analysis of pennycress oil, which does not consider use of the press cake, we have found that the agricultural, livestock and land use change emissions associated with producing pennycress oil are less than or equal to the corresponding emissions associated with producing soybean oil. Therefore, any beneficial use of the pennycress press cake (e.g., as livestock feed or boiler fuel) would only serve to make the GHG emissions associated with pennycress oil even lower than the corresponding emissions for soybean oil. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES B. Feedstock Distribution EPA’s assessment, based on the following reasoning, is that GHG emissions from feedstock distribution will be the same for pennycress as such emissions for soybeans. Because pennycress contains more oil per pound of seed, as discussed above, the energy needed to move the pennycress before oil extraction would be lower than soybeans per ton of oil produced. To the extent that pennycress is grown on more disperse fallow land than soybeans and would need to be transported further, the energy needed to move the pennycress could be higher than soybeans. Therefore, we believe we may assume for purposes of GHG emissions assessment that the GHG emissions associated with transporting pennycress and soybeans to crushing facilities will be the same. Pennycress and soybean oils are quite similar in terms of density and energy content; therefore, we also assumed that the GHG emissions from 37 Moser, B.R. (2012) ‘‘Biodiesel from alternative oilseed feedstock: camelina and field pennycress.’’ Biofuels, 3:193–209. 38 Fan, J. et al. (2013) ‘‘A life cycle assessment of pennycress (Thlaspi arvense L.)—derived jet fuel and diesel.’’ Biomass and Bioenergy, 55:87–100. 39 Moser, B.R. (2012) ‘‘Biodiesel from alternative oilseed feedstock: camelina and field pennycress.’’ Biofuels, 3:193–209. It is important to note that all animal feed products must be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before they can be sold in the United States. Nothing in EPA’s analysis should be construed as an official federal government position regarding the approval or disapproval of pennycress press cake as an animal feed. Only FDA is authorized to make that determination. 40 Vaughn, S.F., et al. (2005) ‘‘Biofumigant compounds released by field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense) seedmeal.’’ Journal of Chemical Ecology, 31(1):167–177. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:14 Mar 19, 2015 Jkt 235001 transporting the oil from a crushing facility to a biofuel production facility would be the same for the two different feedstocks. C. Summary of Agricultural Sector GHG Emissions Compared to soybean oil, pennycress oil has less than or equal GHG emissions per ton of oil from crop inputs, crushing and oil extraction, and direct and indirect land use change. Pennycress and soybean oils are also likely to have similar GHG emissions from feedstock distribution. Therefore, we believe that the feedstock production and transport portion of the lifecycle GHG emissions associated with pennycress are likely to be similar to or less than the GHG emissions for the corresponding portion of the lifecycle analysis for soybean oil. EPA’s purpose in evaluating petitions under 40 CFR 80.1416 is not to prepare a precise lifecycle GHG emissions analysis of every fuel type, but to gather sufficient information on which to inform its decision of whether proposed biofuels qualify under the program in terms of lifecycle GHG emissions reduction. Based on our comparison of pennycress oil to soybean oil, EPA proposes to use, in its future evaluations of petitions proposing to use pennycress oil as a feedstock for biofuel production, an estimate of the GHG emissions associated with the cultivation and transport of pennycress oil that is the same as that which we have used for soybean oil, on a per ton of oil basis. Although EPA could conduct a more precise analysis, we do not believe it is necessary for purposes of the determinations EPA must make in responding to petitions. EPA solicits comment on this proposed approach. D. Fuel Production and Distribution Pennycress oil has physical properties that are similar to soybean and camelina oil, and is suitable for the same conversion processes as these feedstocks. In addition, the fuel yield per pound of oil is expected to be the same for each of these feedstocks. After reviewing comments received in response to this Notice, we will combine our evaluation of agricultural sector GHG emissions associated with the use of pennycress oil feedstock with our evaluation of the GHG emissions associated with individual producers’ production processes and finished fuels to determine whether the proposed pathways satisfy CAA lifecycle GHG emissions reduction requirements for RFS-qualifying renewable fuels. Based on our evaluation of the lifecycle GHG emissions attributable to the production PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15007 and transport of pennycress oil feedstock, EPA anticipates that fuel produced from pennycress oil feedstock through the same transesterification or hydrotreating process technologies that EPA evaluated for the March 2010 RFS rule for biofuel derived from soybean oil and the March 2013 RFS rule for biofuel derived from camelina oil would qualify for biomass-based diesel (D-code 4) RINs or advanced (D-code 5) RINs.41 However, EPA will evaluate petitions for fuel produced from pennycress oil feedstock on a case-by-case basis. III. Summary EPA invites public comment on its analysis of GHG emissions associated with the production and transport of pennycress oil as a feedstock for biofuel production. EPA will consider public comments received when evaluating the lifecycle GHG emissions of biofuel production pathways described in petitions received pursuant to 40 CFR 80.1416 which use pennycress oil as a feedstock.
