04 Aug Renew Kansas board member and California biofuels CEOs ask senator to withdraw corn-based ethanol bill
Renew Kansas Biofuels Association’s immediate past chairman Lyle Schlyer of Calgren Renewable Fuels signed onto a letter to United States Senator Dianne Feinstein asking her to withdraw a bill she introduced last month that would eliminate the Renewable Fuel Standard’s (RFS) conventional ethanol mandate.
Feinstein introduced the Corn Ethanol Mandate Elimination Act, that if enacted into law would harm our California business operations, while increasing costs for consumers and harming our environment.
“While we are proud of the success of ethanol in reducing carbon emissions in California and the rest of the country, our industry continues to innovate to drive our full life cycle carbon emissions lower,” the letter said. “The Renewable Fuels Association just sent a letter to President Biden pledging its producer members to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
