According to recent scientific research from @rhodium_group, #biofuels must play a role in our nation's climate agenda that @POTUS has put into place. #ClimateChange https://t.co/9QIfRdcihX

Our friends at @mncorn announced a commitment of $1 million for ethanol infrastructure grant programs. This is huge investment in the future of higher blends of ethanol, and we look forward to working together to increase access to lower-carbon fuels! growthenergy.org/2021/04/15/min…
