Ahead of our annual Biofuels Summit, we are excited to launch our summer video series, “Conversations with Biofuel Champions“! This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for you to hear from some of our top champions in Congress – both Republican and Democrat – about the work they are doing on behalf of our industry.

We’re kicking off this series with U.S. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa. Elected to her first term in 2014, Senator Ernst has been at the frontlines of the fight to protect the RFS, both on Capitol Hill and in conversations with the administration.

In her interview with Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor, Ernst talks about the importance of fixing small refinery exemptions for biofuel producers, and how she’s focused on expanding access to higher blends of ethanol as part of COVID-19 recovery and beyond.

Watch the ten-minute conversation between Senator Ernst and Emily Skor here or by clicking on the image below.

Next week, we’ll hear from U.S. Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer of Iowa about why protecting biofuels and farmers isn’t just politics to her – it’s personal. Be sure to tune in!

New 🚨 @EPA released its Set rulemaking, ushering in a new era of the RFS and growing ethanol's role in decarbonizing transportation now and into the future. We’re grateful to @POTUS + @EPAMichaelRegan for keeping clean energy on an upward trajectory. growthenergy.org/2022/12/01/gro… https://t.co/pAObZELyGk

Nearly 70% of U.S. ethanol production is moved by rail. No one wants to see American motorists cut off from a vital supply of lower-cost, lower-carbon fuels so we urge both chambers to quickly to adopt this legislation. twitter.com/ChrisClaytonDT…
