A recent article by Stoel Rives Boise Partner John Eustermann highlighted the role that biofuels producers can play in climate change in the United States as voluntary carbon trading markets continue to mature and carbon legislation becomes more likely.  The article provides an overview of the current state of the carbon credit trading market in the United States, as compared to those countries which are signatories to the Kyoto Protocol, and identifies the benefits to companies who enter the voluntary market in the United States in anticipation of establishment of a formal trading market. 

The article, entitled "Committing to Carbon Credits," appears in the July 2008 issue of Biofuels International magazine.  Another recent article of John’s on the topic was featured in the April 2008 issue of Ethanol Producer magazine, entitled "Capturing the Value of Carbon Credits in Biofuels Projects."
