Hello,

This is a 5 pages research paper for my environmental economics course. The topic is on Alternative fuels and The Renewable Fuel Standard. The use and regulations of biofuels (i.e ethanol), the current economic and environmental issues associated, the cost and benefits, and the effects of using renewable fuels.

In the paper each student should discuss:
-Alternative fuels ( i.e ethanol, biofuels…)
-Effects of the Renewable Fuel Standard on the Use of Renewable Fuels, on prices, on transportation fuels and on Emissions?
-The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA)
-What the Renewable Fuel Standard requires? How the EPA implements the RFS?
-What are challenges in meeting the renewable fuel standard of EISA
-Externalities and Elasticity
-Problems with new fuels
-Companies and investments related to renewable fuels

The paper should include a good and strong conclusion that summarize the different sub-topics and how the use of Ethanol hasnt been a success because of the high cost of using it. Include possible future expectations of alternative fuels use.
Student must use correct citation using Apa style, and use at least 8 sources for reference
Student should use own word and make sure to give credits for any work that you use

Also attached is a document on The renewable fuel standard that I found.
Thank you
