Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor submitted comments to the US Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry hearing on the Growing Climate Solutions Act.
The new act aims to accelerate innovations in climate-friendly farming.
“With many states and localities increasingly exploring public policy options to lower carbon emissions, the use of biofuels can immediately contribute to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, reduce harmful air toxics, and provide affordable solutions to consumers and lawmakers alike,” wrote Skor.
“These benefits are significantly attributed to innovations in agricultural practices like reduced tillage, use of cover crops, and continued ethanol plant innovation.”
Specifically, Skor pointed to the vast trove of public, private, and academic research illustrating how continuous innovation has elevated ethanol as the single most affordable and abundant low-carbon alternative to toxic additives in the fuel mix.
Growth Energy represents producers and supporters of ethanol working to bring consumers better choices at the fuel pump, grow America's economy and improve the environment for future generations.
