Growth Energy Members to Biden: Uphold Your Commitments to Clean Energy

Tue, 21 Sep 2021 08:20:54 CDT

Growth Energy Members to Biden: Uphold Your Commitments to Clean Energy During Growth Energy’s virtual fly-in, 87 Growth Energy members sent a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to stand behind his promise to take clear action on climate change by supporting low-carbon biofuels and upholding the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) through strong biofuel blending targets. The signers represent Growth Energy’s diverse membership of biorefineries and the innovative businesses across 20 states that support renewable energy. A copy of the letter to the President also ran in a full-page print ad in POLITICO on Tuesday, September 21.

“Homegrown biofuels like ethanol reduce carbon emissions by 46% over their full lifecycle, and a recent analysis concludes that if we are to achieve net-zero by 2050, we must use all tools in the toolbox - including biofuels,” Growth Energy’s biofuels producers and supporters wrote. “Our industry supports over 300,000 good paying, clean energy jobs across the heartland. If your administration lets refiners replace clean, renewable biofuels with more fossil fuels, it will hinder progress on your ambitious climate agenda, hurt working families and undermine the economic recovery across rural America.”

“Unfortunately, fossil fuel advocates continue to demand that EPA adopt Renewable Volume Obligations (RVOs) that fall far short of your commitment to uphold the RFS. To help reduce carbon emissions and reach your transportation decarbonization goals, it is vital that conventional biofuel blending targets meet the 15-billion-gallon minimum required by law, restore 500 million gallons of improperly waived fuel blending requirements, and drive ambitious targets for growth in advanced and cellulosic biofuels.
