The Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MN Bio-Fuels) has appointed Brian Werner as its new executive director.

Prior to joining MN Bio-Fuels, Werner was the deputy legislative director / senior legislative assistant for renewable energy and agriculture for Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

During that time, he supported Klobuchar’s work to protect mandatory funding for Farm Bill energy title programs, maintain stability in the implementation of the Renewable Fuel Standard, provide economic relief for biofuel producers negatively affected by the coronavirus pandemic, and secure federal investment in biofuel infrastructure.

“After a decade and a half in our nation’s capital working on agriculture and biofuel policy, I am honored and beyond excited to be coming home to lead MN Bio-Fuels. It is clear that farm-based, homegrown biofuels are a key solution to many of the issues we face today – reducing carbon emissions, strengthening national security, promoting rural economic development, and lowering energy costs for consumers,” Werner said.
