Growth Energy submitted supplemental comments to the Environmental Protection Agency responding to inaccurate claims from other groups about ethanol. 

In the supplemental submissions, Growth Energy rebuts claims based on a recently published anti-ethanol study with conclusions about the greenhouse gas emission impacts of ethanol that are wildly out of step with the established scientific consensus. 

Environmental experts and leading government agencies agree that ethanol reduces GHG emissions when compared to gasoline, which helps to put our nation on a path toward net-zero emissions. 

“EPA is expected to use the best available science when making important decisions under the RFS and other environmental laws,” says Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. 

“The recent comments submitted to EPA very obviously don’t meet this standard and should be rejected outright.” 

The organization points out that the Department of Energy, the Department of Agriculture, the California Air Resources Board, and the EPA have all agreed that biofuels reduce carbon emissions.
