WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Growth Energy released a new television ad stressing the vital role ethanol plays in rural America’s economy and asking Congress to support making E15 year-round a reality. The latest ad campaign begins this week and will appear on televisions in Washington, D.C. and select markets across the heartland.

“The drive to give consumers cleaner, more affordable options at the pump gains momentum every day,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “We’re making sure that President Trump and rural champions in Congress have the support they need to get this over the finish line. Farm families are hurting and there’s no time to delay a fix that could deliver two billion bushels of additional demand for U.S. corn while holding down prices at the pump.”

This ad is the latest in Growth Energy’s ongoing push to secure E15, a renewable fuel blend made from 15 percent ethanol, sales year-round.

We give a lot of attention to the farmers and ethanol producers, but our industry relies on quite a few more links in the supply chain. This is a great look at the hardworking folks who haul corn from the farm to the plant year-round. ksn.com/gooddaykansas/…

It was great meeting with @GrowthEnergy on Wednesday to talk biofuels & trade. The COVID-19 pandemic has only deepened the challenges facing our ag & energy industries, and it was great to discuss solutions. I’m committed to getting real help for our farmers and producers. #IA01
