The Need For The Renewable Fuel Standard

August 16 -- It's a critically important time for the bioenergy industry, and particularly the advanced biofuels producers. I'm a long-time supporter of efforts to diversify our energy supply with clean-burning, homegrown renewable energy. Iowa has been blessed with rich, productive soil and abundant agricultural resources.  >>View Article

August 16 -- Congress shouldn't weaken the Renewable Fuel Standard, which commits our country to using increasing quantities of clean-burning biofuels. >>View Article

Ethanol Is U.S.-Made, Cheaper Than Gas

August 13 -- In “Imaginary optimism” (Comment & Analysis, Aug. 12), The Washington Times asserts that oil companies are being forced to blend cellulosic ethanol that does not exist. The Times also claims that biofuel blending increases pump prices. We get it. The Washington Times is dubious of policies that promote biofuels, but facts are facts. >>View Article

August 12 -- Seventy-one years ago this month, the Nazi army began its attack on Stalingrad. After more than six long months of grueling warfare that left the city in shambles and claimed the lives of more than 1.5 million people, the Soviet Army turned back the Nazis and swung the fate of the Second World War. But why did these armies continue to fight with such zealous fervor after the city was nothing but a pile of rubble and its strategic assets were in shambles? >>View Article

August 5 -- Biofuels are used in more than just everyday cars and trucks. NASCAR driver Austin Dillon stopped at POET Biorefining in Portland to talk about ethanol use in his car, one of the fastest on the road. As part of his American Ethanol Heartland Tour, Dillon visited the biorefinery, signed autographs and answered questions about his racing career and ethanol use in NASCAR vehicles. >>View Article

Less Oil, More Biofuels

August 1 -- Jason Bordoff and Robert McNally make some good points about the challenges facing our biofuels policy in their July 26 column ("Well-intentioned but flawed, U.S. biofuel policy in need of change"), but take a step too far in calling for Congress to change the Renewable Fuel Standard. EPA has the flexibility it needs to address the near-term challenges, and legislative changes will delay progress without fixing anything. Fact is, the RFS is working—just this week we got news that two new facilities in Florida and Mississippi are producing commercial quantities of truly advanced, non-food cellulosic biofuel, and more will soon follow. >>View Article

July 31 -- No fuel at scale today comes close to equaling ethanol’s ability to prevent American cars and trucks from spewing pollutants from their tailpipes. Unfortunately, one of the most important incentives for the growth of biofuels is now under attack by misguided lawmakers and Big Oil. >>View Article

July 30 -- Billy Glover explains how petroleum-based aviation fuel could disappear. >>View Article

July 22 -- Biofuel producers will invest as much as $69 billion to expand output during the next decade, driven in part by U.S. policies that increase blending of plant-based fuels into petroleum-based fuel, according to a report from Navigant Consulting Inc. (NCI) >>View Article
