WASHINGTON, D.C. – Growth Energy today welcomed the inclusion of biofuels in a new plan released by the U.S. Senate Democrats’ Special Committee on the Climate Crisis. In a section devoted to the role of farmers and rural communities in combating carbon emissions, the report outlines strategies to expand the role of clean, affordable ethanol and other biofuels.
