Iowa Processor Says RFS Critical To Advanced Biofuel Development

Iowa Processor Says RFS Critical To Advanced Biofuel Development

Fuels America along with the Renewable Fuels Association, Growth Energy and the National Corn Growers are touting the importance of retaining the Renewable Fuels Standard. The RFS has been under attack from Oil industry interests who wish to dismantle it.  Quad County Iowa Processors General Manager Delayne Johnson says their new cellulosic facility project would have moved faster if the RFS hadn’t faced those challenges.

Johnson says as more Advanced Biofuel projects attempt to move forward, it’s critical the RFS be kept intact and the false attacks against it brought out in the open.

RFS opponents have introduced legislation that’s stuck in Congress that would repeal it. Some House members are looking at potential legislation to modify it.
