Lee, Y.Y., Khanna, M., Chen, L. April 2, 2023. Data from: “Quantifying Uncertainties in Greenhouse Gas Savings and Abatement Costs with Cellulosic Biofuels.” University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. DOI: 10.13012/B2IDB-4326514_V1.


Range of uncertain outcomes in ILUC effects. (A) Corn ethanol ILUC and corn ethanol ILUC-related GHG intensity (2016–2030) (B) Cellulosic ethanol ILUC and cellulosic ethanol ILUC-related GHG intensity (2016–2030). 

Use of cellulosic biofuels from non-feedstocks are modeled using the BEPAM (Biofuel and Environmental Policy Analysis Model) model to quantifying the uncertainties about induced land use change effects, net greenhouse gas saving potential, and economic costs. The code is in GAMS, general algebraic modeling language.
NOTE: Column 3 is titled “BAU” in “merged_BAU.gdx”, “merged_RFS.gdx”, and “merged_CEM.gdx”, but contains “RFS” data in “merged_RFS.gdx” and “CEM” data in “merged_CEM.gdx”
