WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released an independent analysis that shows how ethanol is projected to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) by up to 70 percent in 2022.

Growth Energy welcomed the report findings, and CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement:

“This new USDA study further supports that ethanol is a win-win for all Americans,” said Skor. “Higher ethanol blends provide not only tremendous health and environmental benefits, but economic benefits as well for rural America and our farmers. Our industry remains committed to cleaner fuel options for all drivers, and ethanol’s role in reducing GHGs is among the reasons why. We look forward to drivers experiencing these benefits and more when they soon have access to E15 year-round.”

To achieve net-zero emissions and decarbonize the transportation sector, biofuels must be part of the solution. According to recent scientific research from @rhodium_group, #biofuels must play a role in our nation's climate agenda that @POTUS has put into place. #ClimateChange https://t.co/9QIfRdcihX

Our friends at @mncorn announced a commitment of $1 million for ethanol infrastructure grant programs. This is huge investment in the future of higher blends of ethanol, and we look forward to working together to increase access to lower-carbon fuels! growthenergy.org/2021/04/15/min…

.@POTUS's infrastructure plan should include expanding access to low carbon #biofuels, like plant-based ethanol, that can help us reduce emissions today. Thank you @RepCindyAxne. twitter.com/RepCindyAxne/s…

.@RepCindyAxne is fighting to include #biofuels in any infrastructure legislation to be considered by Congress. To decarbonize the transportation sector, low-carbon fuel options like biofuels MUST be part of the solution. Thank you for taking action! twitter.com/RepCindyAxne/s…
