Plant and forestry waste and dedicated energy crops could sustainably  replace nearly a third of gasoline use by the year 2030, according to  an in-depth study by Sandia National Laboratories and General Motors  Corporation called “The 90 Billion Gallon Study.”
Researchers assessed the feasibility, implications, limitations, and  enablers of annually producing 90 billion gallons of ethanol sufficient  to replace more than 60 billion of the estimated 180 billion gallons of  gasoline expected to be used annually by 2030. Ninety billion gallons a  year exceeds the U.S. Department of Energy’s goal for ethanol production  established in 2006.
