With record ethanol production and the lowest gas prices in years, 2014 was a banner year for the renewable fuel industry.
For the second month in a row, a new cellulosic ethanol facility is coming online -- one of four new cellulosic ethanol facilities opening in the U.S. before the end of the year.
Bringing the climate challenge into sharp relief, a new report from the Biotechnology Industry Organization explains that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are actually expected to increase as a result of EPA inaction on the Renewable Fuel Standard.
As Sen. Harkin held his final steak fry with Secretary Clinton headlining, Fuels America ran advertising on a full-page of Sunday’s Des Moines Register and on Iowa radio.
For the second week in a row, a new cellulosic ethanol facility is coming online -- one of four new cellulosic ethanol facilities opening in the U.S. before the end of the year.
After years of innovation and investment, the first of four new cellulosic ethanol facilities in the U.S. comes online this week -- amazing progress in the few short years since the adoption of the Renewable Fuel Standard.
This weekend, Americans across the country will celebrate the achievements of American workers -- including the workers that support the US biofuels industry.
The Fuels America coalition is taking its case directly to President Obama today in a full page advertisement in the Martha’s Vineyard Gazette, a weekly newspaper broadly distributed across the island.
For months, the EPA has debated the 2014 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Now — thanks to pressure from oil companies and their allies — they’re on the verge of weakening the RFS. That would harm American farmers, workers, and small business owners whose jobs depend on this homegrown industry. Who would benefit from weakening the RFS? Find out.
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."
