The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) issued the following statement on the announcement of President Trump’s plan to uphold the integrity of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) by ensuring biofuel blending targets are truly met each year.
“Equipment manufacturers and farmers have worked in lockstep to defend the integrity of the Renewable Fuel Standard, and today President Trump demonstrated his commitment to manufacturing and farming communities across the country,” said Dennis Slater, president of AEM. “The President’s plan restores the credibility to the RFS consistent with congressional intent and demonstrates his commitment to pursuing pro-biofuel policies.”
“Reallocating the ethanol gallons lost through small refinery wavers will directly benefit the 1.3 million hardworking men and women of our industry. We are grateful the President recognizes the importance of the RFS to farmers, equipment manufacturers and the entire agriculture community, and look forward to working with him and our supporters in Congress to continue to bolster the agriculture economy.”
