The nation’s oldest ethanol advocacy organization is welcoming the formation of Growth Energy, a new group announced Tuesday in Washington DC.
In a statement, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) said it “welcomes Growth Energy’s support in tackling challenges and seizing upon the opportunities before America’s ethanol producers. On behalf of ethanol producers across America and in conjunction with our international colleagues, the RFA remains committed to expanding ethanol markets and reducing our dependence on foreign oil, dispelling misinformation about ethanol production and use, addressing climate change, and assuring the full potential of American farmers and ethanol producers is realized and put to work. We welcome another voice in Growth Energy in support of America’s farmers and ethanol producers.”
RFA has served as the voice of the ethanol industry since 1981, providing advocacy, authoritative analysis, and important industry data to its members, Congress, federal and state government agencies, strategic partners, the media and other opinion-leader audiences.
Growth Energy was formed by a group of ethanol companies – including POET, ICM, Western Plains Energy, Amaizing Energy, Hawkeye Renewables, Green Plains Renewable Energy – “committed to the promise of agriculture and growing America’s economy through cleaner, greener energy.”
