The CEOs of Growth Energy and the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) were among the distinguished industry guests who attended the USDA National Agriculture Day Proclamation ceremony Tuesday with remarks from Vice President Mike Pence.
“The United States produces an abundance of food, feed and fuel, benefiting not only our nation, but the entire world,” said Pence in his remarks.
“Growth Energy is pleased to join the chorus of voices thanking America’s farmers for their contributions to our economy on National Agriculture Day,” Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor said. “There has never been a more important time to reinforce rural America’s role in producing clean energy. Biofuels provide a vital growth market for America’s vast agricultural output.”
“American farmers are the foundation for the renewable fuels industry, producing a robust sustainable feedstock used to create clean, green, homegrown biofuels,” said RFA president and CEO Bob Dinneen. “American farmers are the foundation for the renewable fuels industry, producing a robust sustainable feedstock used to create clean, green, homegrown biofuels.”
Dinneen and Skor both say talks about still on-going with the administration to find a solution to the issue of RIN prices but both say they are just not sure how it will shake out at this point.
