Last week, Green Plains Inc. Vice President of Government Affairs Devin Mogler traveled to Ottawa, Canada to advocate on behalf of Growth Energy for biofuels’ role in Canada’s pending Clean Fuel Standard. Mogler joined representatives of the U.S. Grains Council on this visit, and met with Canadian regulators from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Natural Resources Canada, and Environment and Climate Change Canada. Mogler and the delegation consulted Canadian regulators on how the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) has driven innovation and expanded America’s ethanol production capacity to make the U.S. the world leader in the production and blending of ethanol.

Mogler said that while in Canada,  regulators “asked a lot of questions about how we are able to produce so efficiently, how stability in government policy influences investment in the sector, and compatibility of higher blends in the existing vehicle fleet and retail stations. We are going to continue to collaborate with them on breaking down barriers to higher blends, and ensuring their policy setting remains aggressive.”

We would like to thank Green Plains Inc. for its help in promoting biofuels in Canada and all of our members who are working to grow the global biofuels outlook everyday.

What exactly is ethanol, and how does it compare to gasoline? Dr. Andy with the facts here.

The Renewable Fuel Standard is the law, and it continues to provide opportunities and benefits for our rural communities, farmers, and biofuel producers. Rep. @RodneyDavis speaks here on why biofuels is so important in his state.

Biofuels offer a clear path to reducing greenhouse gas emissions while driving economic growth & creating jobs in #MN02. I introduced a bill to increase biofuel blending while pushing back on small refinery waivers, which are nothing but a handout to big oil. #MNFarmfest

The Dept of @ENERGY recommending even partial gap year waivers to big oil is an affront to the 10th circuit court ruling and another blow to the #RFS. The @EPA must now follow the court’s ruling and deny ALL gap year waiver requests.
