We can assist project planners with clear compliance options based on our knowledge of market trends.


Real World Carbon Reductions:

We are intimately familiar with programs such as the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) as well as international renewable energy policies.  Other domestic programs under USDA, USEPA, or the Department of Energy may also be relevant to your project.   We can efficiently help you understand what programs might impact your project and what funds might be available to support or expand your current program. We also have experience with regional programs such as the Low Carbon Fuel Standard in California and the Clean Fuels Program in Oregon as well as potential opportunities from Washington state, Colorado, across the Midwest and several northeast states. Our experience includes incentives and mandates that exist from New York, to Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and across North America and the EU.


Carbon Capture in Soils and Biomass:

Renewable fuels have the power to reduce transportation emissions by displacing fossil fuels while they recycle biogenic carbon.  The feedstock crops used to produce bioenergy can also store carbon in soils and biomass.  Responsible agriculture, forestry and land management can generate the negative carbon emissions needed to mitigate the fossil carbon emissions that are already destabilizing the climate. Regenerative agriculture should be the engine driving a circular bioeconomy.   Land management is the nexus between the production of food and storing terrestrial carbon.  Proper management also creates opportunities for producing renewable fuels and conserving wildlife habitat. Our consultants pioneered systems thinking to bring these solutions into context.  Applying this knowledge more broadly across agriculture and industry will increase sustainable business opportunities.

Carbon Calculations:

Our consultants have evaluated the carbon impact of a wide array of alternative and petroleum fuels.  We can provide data-based assessments for your city, state, region or even country that demonstrates how your prescribed area may transition to cleaner fuels based on a variety of market-based policies, incentives or mandates. 

Tied Branch is based in California, North Carolina, New York, and Vermont. We work nationwide.
