Fuels America created to protect RFS


Fuels America is a new coalition formed to defend America’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). The new coalition has been established by domestically grown renewable fuel, national security, renewable energy and other stakeholders. The coalition has launched and a Twitter presence @FuelsAmerica.


The launch comes as the EPA considers a request to “waive” the RFS, a move that coalition members say would adversely impact America’s rural communities, renewable technology innovators and energy independence.


“More than 400,000 American jobs are supported by renewable transportation fuel, and America leads the world in renewable fuel innovation. That is why Fuels America’s diverse membership has come together to reset the national conversation on renewable fuel, protect the progress that has been made and ensure that America’s Renewable Fuel Standard continues its success,” said former Congressman Jim Greenwood, president and CEO, Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO).


The new campaign will be a national effort, including advertising, beginning in Washington, D.C., and several states. Each state will have its own online platform reachable through and feature the stories of renewable fuel innovators and communities with a stake in maintaining the RFS.
