"Global Land Use Impacts of U.S. Ethanol: Revised Analysis Using GDyn-BIO Framework"
by Golub, Alla, Thomas Hertel and Steven Rose

In recent years, many economic models have been used to analyze impacts of expanded production of bioenergy on land use, food and fuel prices, and greenhouse gas emissions. One of them is GTAP-BIO model – modeling framework mandated for use in California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) assessments of biofuels. The GTAP-BIO model is static, yet most biofuel mandates refer to some future period in time, and without an explicit baseline, it is difficult to evaluate the relative stringency of such policies over time. In addition, presenting biofuels induced land use change analysis in the context of a dynamic baseline is far more appealing to policy makers. This paper discusses development and application of a dynamic version of the GTAP-BIO model – GDyn-BIO – to the analysis of expanded production of U.S. corn ethanol.
