WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor submitted comments to the record for today’s U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry hearing on the Growing Climate Solutions Act, which aims to accelerate innovations in climate-friendly farming.
“With many states and localities increasingly exploring public policy options to lower carbon emissions, the use of biofuels can immediately contribute to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, reduce harmful air toxics, and provide affordable solutions to consumers and lawmakers alike,” wrote Skor. “These benefits are significantly attributed to innovations in agricultural practices like reduced tillage, use of cover crops, and continued ethanol plant innovation.”
Specifically, Skor pointed to the vast trove of public, private, and academic research illustrating how continuous innovation has elevated ethanol as the single most affordable and abundant low-carbon alterative to toxic additives in the fuel mix.
We were honored to host @EPAMichaelRegan at our 12th Annual ELC. Administrator Regan participated in a virtual fireside chat with CEO @EmilySkor and discussed EPA's approach to decarbonization and how biofuels fit into the agency’s plan for a cleaner planet. https://t.co/eSQln8kD6c
Provides cleaner air (46% lower emissions). Renewable and plant-based (reduces reliance on fossil fuels). Made here in the U.S. #Biofuels, people! They ARE the answer! Thanks @GrowthEnergy for your tireless commitment! #FactualFriday #EthanolFTW https://t.co/NGdeubDWpN
Michael Lorenz, formerly with convenience-store chain Sheetz, will join @GrowthEnergy as senior vice president of market development, overseeing the global and domestic #expansion of higher ethanol blended #fuels. #cspdn https://t.co/RYpjVQXdWU https://t.co/bhnc2PNUBq
