Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis Statement After EPW Committee Hearing

WASHINGTON, DC – Growth Energy, the leading voice for the U.S. ethanol industry, released the following statement following the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing examining domestic renewable fuels.

“The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee had an opportunity with this hearing to shed some light on fallacies that have been paraded as fact by special interests seeking to protect their profits over the interests of the American public,” said Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis. “The U.S. ethanol industry is one of the most innovative in the country – leading development of new technologies to reduce energy and water use, extract more energy from the grain and reduce harmful emissions. American ethanol is a sustainable, home-grown fuel that decreases the demand for foreign oil, strengthens our national security and keeps prices lower both at the grocery store and the filling station.”
