WASHINGTON, DC — In response to EPA’s announcement finalizing additional pathways for cellulosic ethanol and advanced biofuel under the RFS, Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis made the following statement:

“We are very pleased that EPA has approved long awaited pathways for ethanol from corn kernel fiber and other crop residues. The RFS continues to be a resounding success and these pathways will continue to provide additional ways to meet the goals of the RFS moving forward and will give producers an important avenue to start producing commercial volumes of cellulosic ethanol”
