NFU Announces Biofuels Initiative

National Farmers Union (NFU) has announced an initiative “to advance federal policies that support homegrown and home-produced renewable energy sources.”

The effort follows a special order of business that was passed by delegates to the NFU 115th Anniversary Convention in March supporting expanded markets for higher blends of ethanol, like E30, and advanced biofuels. NFU’s initiative is supported by all three major ethanol organizations.

NFU president Roger Johnson and energy policy advisor Anne Steckel announced the effort during a telephone press conference August 23.
