As the situation in Iraq comes home to motorists paying higher prices at the pump, more and more Americans are choosing less expensive, homegrown fuels as opposed to reliance on the volatile market for foreign oil.
With ads running around The Woodlands, Texas — where oil companies are holding an annual forum to discuss industry strategies around taxes — Fuels America is warning the public, and decision makers, of Big Oil’s tax tricks.
As the final Renewable Fuel Standard Rule draws closer, Fuels America is continuing its Morning Energy sponsorship with a focus on low-carbon advanced biofuels.
In a letter to President Obama today, leaders of America’s renewable fuel industry urge the Administration to rethink its proposal to weaken the bipartisan Renewable Fuel Standard – a proposal that is at odds with the National Climate Assessment the White House released earlier this week. The letter is signed by Abengoa Bioenergy, the Advanced Ethanol Council, the Biotechnology Industry Organization, DuPont, DSM, Growth Energy, the National Corn Growers Association, Novozymes, the Renewable Fuels Association, and POET.
Representatives of DuPont, POET-DSM, Abengoa Bioenergy and Quad County Corn detailed their progress toward launching commercial-scale production of cellulosic ethanol this year—but warned that the continued growth of this industry is at significant risk because of the U.S. EPA’s proposal to gut the renewable fuel standard and increase the amount of oil in gasoline.
The report tells the story of an innovative, advanced renewable fuels and biofuels industry that is producing growing benefits for America’s economy.
Fuels America coalition members today announced the launch of the “Oil Rigged” television and digital ad campaign and OilRigged.com to expose how the oil industry is rigging the system to protect their profits and block the transition to clean, American renewable fuels.
Today, the Senate Agriculture Committee held a hearing to examine the status of advanced biofuels in the US. The message was clear: advanced biofuels grow the economy, lower gas prices and are good for the environment – and we need the RFS to keep it that way.
There’s a great story to be told in America today and it has to do with the cellulosic ethanol industry. Three major commercial scale cellulosic facilities are coming online this year, the product of years of innovation and hard work, buttressed by the Renewable Fuel Standard.
The President's proposal to cut back on renewable fuel in 2014 contradicts his rhetorical support for an "all of the above" energy policy. At the same time, progress toward clean, alternative fuels is a very real and undertold story.
UAW warns the EPA that if it carries out its proposed 2014 RFS requirements "high-skilled and specialized agricultural manufacturing jobs will be put at risk, thereby limiting the future growth of our manufacturing sector."
What issue has unified Republican and Democratic lawmakers from Hawaii to Indiana to Massachusetts? The Renewable Fuel Standard.
Convenience store operator MAPCO Express, Inc., one of the largest company-operated retail chains in the United States, announced today it will begin offering E15 to customers. As more gas stations invest in renewable fuel infrastructure, the so-called "blend wall" comes crashing down.
Retail gasoline prices were unaffected by the erratic surge in prices for Renewable Identification Number (RIN) credits in 2013, according to a detailed statistical analysis conducted by Informa Economics, Inc. and released today by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA).
It’s no surprise the oil industry is taking yet another opportunity to spread misinformation about the Renewable Fuel Standard and its role in promoting viable alternatives to oil
Just six years later, tremendous progress has been made toward achieving the original objectives of the expanded RFS. Renewable fuel production and consumption has grown dramatically. Dependence on petroleum—particularly imports of refined products—is down significantly. Greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector have fallen.
The bill from Senators Feinstein, Coburn, and their co-sponsors is short-sighted and demonstrates a failure to understand how the renewable fuel industry works.
A new issue brief from the Center for American Progress makes the environmental case for supporting the Renewable Fuel Standard.
Representatives from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) plan to cite a number of bogus and debunked studies related to E15 and greenhouse gas emissions in their testimony.
If the EPA moves forward with their proposed biofuel targets, we will produce over 30 million tons more of CO2 next year than if the EPA sticks with the targets laid out in the RFS.
