At our Executive Leadership Conference earlier this year, Growth Energy members had the opportunity to hear from DuPont Vice President and Global Business Director Simon Herriott about the incredible work that DuPont is doing to find the “sweet spot” of sustainability, positive economic impact, and consumer value. We were thrilled to continue this important conversation and share it more widely through in the May issue of our American Ethanol Magazine, and so that others can better understand how DuPont is leading innovation in biofuels:

“At DuPont, we’re passionately involved in the biofuels industry,” Herriott stressed. “One of the key messages in the presentation I gave at Growth Energy’s Executive Leadership Conference was the fact that we have choices to make that should fulfill a strong future of growth for the industry… If we were to hit the IEA (International Energy Agency) objectives of 15 percent of the light-duty transportation fuel mix being bioethanol, you could estimate saving another 150 million tons of CO2 equivalents ‘and’ building another 500 biofuel plants around the world. We’re committed to helping that come to pass.”

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
