Please note that WSPA had requested an addendum to slide 18 of the presentation, which stated:

"WSPA presented a slide reflecting a simple calculation, using the tool provided by CARB, of the carbon intensities of ethanol necessary to comply with the LCFS requirements for gasoline assuming no change in the 10 percent blend.  [The slide is NOT a representation of whether regulated parties may or may not comply with any regulatory requirement(s). Compliance with regulatory requirements is an individual company/facility process and WSPA does not participate in that process.]"
