Growth Energy Welcomes Inclusion of $1 Billion for Biofuels Infrastructure

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor thanked President Biden and Congressional leaders for including $1 billion in biofuels infrastructure investments in his proposed Build Back Better budget reconciliation framework.

“President Biden’s proposal to invest $1 billion in biofuels infrastructure is a welcome acknowledgment from this administration that access to higher blends of biofuels at the pump makes a real difference in decarbonizing transportation,” said Skor. “Recent research shows that a nationwide E15 standard would reduce CO2 emissions by more than 17.62 million tons – the equivalent of taking 3.85 million cars off the road each year. Investing in fuel infrastructure that allows more American drivers to fill up on low-carbon biofuel blends, like E15, is crucial to helping our nation achieve our clean energy goals today.”
