California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) Services

With a full sustainability team of CARB-accredited auditors, Pinion is positioned to help with the mandatory LCFS verification and validation required beginning January 1, 2020.
Our specialists are trained to navigate the complex requirements for the production of ethanol, biodiesel, and dairy biomethane, among others.

Pinion has been selected as a third party LCFS verifier as set by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and has completed the supporting qualifications necessary to conduct verifications for LCFS beginning in 2020.

Feel free to contact us with questions on the new LCFS regulations or the validation process.

“The details of this regulation are pretty complicated,” says Donna Funk, principal and biofuels industry leader at Pinion.  “The validation process is involved, and it’s clear that producers will want to get started right away with pre-verification steps, if they haven’t already.”
