DF Cast: Ethanol, Biodiesel Industries Optimistic on 2010

John Davis

The new year brings in new hope, and it’s no different for the ethanol and biodiesel industries in this country.

You couldn’t blame the folks who make biofuels in the U.S. if they just wanted to forget about 2009 … especially when you consider the fights over food versus fuel, delays of regulatory implementations that would have helped both ethanol and biodiesel, indirect land use issues, and to cap it off, the loss of the $1-a-gallon federal biodiesel blender’s tax incentive.

In this edition of the Domestic Fuel Cast, listen in on my conversations with Tom Buis, the CEO of Growth Energy, a group representing America’s ethanol producers; the Renewable Fuels Association’s Matt Hartwig; and Joe Jobe, Chief Executive Officer of the National Biodiesel Board, as they discuss how they believe each of their respective industries moves forward in 2010.
