Bob Dinneen, President and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association likes the concept of the Open Fuel Standard legislation. According to Dinneen, - that will empower consumers to make the choice that is best for them. He added - it’s not right to “demonize” domestic energy supplies, such as natural gas and coal.
At the same time, Growth Energy also supports the bill. Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says, - if we are truly going to meet our nation’s renewable fuel goals and substantially reduce our dependence on foreign oil, we need to invest in policies like these that will bring our entire vehicle fleet up to modern engine standards, and open the market to more ethanol.
