Ethanol Fuels RNC

CACDuring the Republican National Convention this week, delegates have been educated about ethanol in the state of Minnesota in several ways, thanks to the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest Clean Air Choice Team.

Bob Moffit and Matt HartwigCommunications Director Bob Moffitt was at the Minnesota Agri-Growth Council’s AgNite event on Tuesday evening in the Twin Cities where ethanol was featured as a sponsor. “Cleaner burning biofuels have made an enormous difference for Minnesota,” Moffitt said. “Minnesota is kind of the focus of the world right now with the RNC and we want to try to make biofuels a big focus.” He is pictured here on the right with Matt Hartwig of the Renewable Fuels Association at the event.

In conjunction with the convention, the St. Paul-based Clean Air Choice Team held an event to offer E85 for $1.00 off the current posted price at a station in nearby Eagen, Minnesota. “In terms of E85 stations, we are number one in North America with more than 350 stations,” Moffitt said.

In addition, GM flex-fuel vehicles fueled with E85 were the official vehicles for the RNC as they were at the Democratic National Convention.
