Leaders from the Auto Alliance and Renewable Fuel Association agree that they need to continue to cooperate on issues like higher ethanol blends and emissions regulations if America is to successfully address energy challenges.
Leaders of the Auto Alliance and the Renewable Fuel Association (RFA) recently said that despite their differences over how to best increase the amount of ethanol included in America’s fuel supply, they agree that renewable fuels are “a path down which America must head.”
At RFA’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., Mitch Bainwol, CEO, Auto Alliance, and Bob Dinneen, CEO, RFA, released the following statement:
“Both the automotive and ethanol industries are defined by their constant innovation and evolution. 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.
“The automotive and ethanol industries have had a productive and cordial relationship for many years and we fully expect this relationship to remain strong,” they stated. “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.”
