On August 22, we welcomed Reeve Agri-Energy as Growth Energy’s newest plant member. Located in Garden City, Kansas, Reeve Agri-Energy began production as an integrated ethanol plant and cattle feed lot in 1982. In response to the announcement, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement:
“Reeve Agri-Energy embodies the spirit of American ingenuity and progress that is imbued throughout the ethanol industry and our membership. By optimizing their plant to produce clean-burning, high-octane biofuel, while providing valuable cattle feed to the Reeve Cattle Company and utilizing the heat from the plant for a fish farming operation, they are setting an example for clean, sustainable energy practices. We are proud to add Reeve Agri-Energy to our growing membership, and look forward to driving positive change in the renewable energy sector together for many more years to come.”
President and CEO of Reeve Agri-Energy, Lee Reeve, also spoke about becoming a member of Growth Energy. “We’ve been in this business since 1982, and we’re a family owned plant, which is extremely rare today. We’re currently working on renovation projects for the ethanol plant, and have heard throughout the years that Growth Energy has been doing great work on behalf of the ethanol industry, so we’re very excited to be joining them as a member.”
I’m throughly disappointed that @EPA failed to meet their deadline for issuing biofuel blending requirements that would lower emissions & gas prices. Keeping biofuels in the U.S. clean energy agenda means ensuring fossil fuel companies can’t keep skirting their #RFS obligations.
🛎 @EPA, today marks the statutory deadline under the RFS to issue the 2022 RVO. Failing to issue RVOs on time is a missed opportunity to address our climate challenge, provide consumers with continued lower-carbon choices at the pump, and contribute to the rural recovery. https://t.co/dheapJIHKz
