Growth Energy Supports Senate Bill to Update Greenhouse Gas Modeling

Wed, 03 Feb 2021 12:40:53 CST

Growth Energy Supports Senate Bill to Update Greenhouse Gas Modeling Today, U.S. Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) and U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) introduced the Adopt Greenhouse Gas and Regulated Emissions and Energy Use in Transportation (GREET) Act, which would require the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to update its greenhouse gas (GHG) modeling for ethanol and biodiesel to accurately reflect the GHG reductions achieved by biofuels.

Following the introduction, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released a statement in support of the Adopt GREET Act:

"Biofuels continue to prove their environmental benefits and significance in our nation’s climate change efforts. Just last week, a study was released that found that greenhouse gas emissions from corn ethanol are 46% lower than gasoline, up from a previous reporting of 39%. As the science on biofuels and innovative farming techniques continue to improve, updating the modeling at EPA is long overdue and necessary to fully reflect biofuels’ potential to decarbonize the transportation sector and provide Americans with immediate cleaner options at the pump.

“We thank Senators Thune and Klobuchar for introducing the Adopt GREET Act and for their tireless efforts on behalf of biofuels.”
