Members of the Renewable Fuels Association, meeting in Washington, D.C., heard the CEO of the Auto Alliance, Mitch Bainwol, and RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen reaffirm their industries’ commitment to developing and implementing renewable fuel technologies to reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. Speaking as one, the industry leaders said – we firmly believe that America can secure its energy future and create jobs by investing in new vehicle and fuel technologies that harness the innovative power of American workers to redefine how we power our cars. 

Despite current differences over how to best increase the amount of ethanol included in America’s fuel supply, automotive and ethanol interests all agree that renewable fuels are a path down which America must head. The leaders agree that issues like higher level ethanol blends and vehicle emissions regulations will require the continued cooperation of both industries if this nation is to successfully address its energy, economic and environmental challenges.
