How can Locus help my organization with LCFS reporting?
Locus is accredited by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to assist organizations with the application and reporting process for the LCFS program. Locus was one of the first to complete CARB’s “fast-track” certification training in November 2019.
Locus has been a certified third-party reviewer of GHG verifications for CARB since 2010 under the Mandatory Reporting Rule, and maintains an unmatched track record. Not even one of our over 500 GHG verifications have been overturned, a standard we will keep for LCFS reporting. We have years of domain expertise to assist you in this new area of regulation.
Locus has staff and expertise to review Tier 1 fuel pathway applications and annual reports under LCFS including:
- Starch and Fiber Ethanol
- Sugarcane-derived Ethanol
- Biodiesel and Renewable Diesel
- LNG and L-CNG from North American Natural Gas
- Biomethane from North American Landfills
- Biomethane from Anaerobic Digestion of Wastewater Sludge
- Biomethane from Anaerobic Digestion of Organic Waste

- Innovative Crude Project

How does LCFS affect my organization?
The LCFS program directly affects any organizations selling, supplying, or producing transportation fuels for use in California. Organizations may also choose to opt-in to the program to gain marketable LCFS credits.
The covered fuels include the common petroleum-based fuels CARBOB and diesel, as well as alternative fuels ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel, alternative jet fuel, propane (fossil or renewable), compressed and liquefied natural gas, electricity (grid or low-carbon), and hydrogen (from specific production sources).
