Buttigieg, Sanders Show Strong Biofuels Support

Biofuels Vision 2020 spent months asking candidates directly about top issues in industry

Initial Iowa Caucus results are showing Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders in the lead, both of whom profess strong support for ethanol and biodiesel, according to Biofuels Vision 2020.

In fact, all of the top candidates are friendly to biofuels, including Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Biofuels Vision 2020 spent months asking candidates directly about: Implementing the RFS as intended; only granting SREs when verifiable harm exists; committing to the growing role of corn ethanol and soy biodiesel; supporting year-round E15; prioritizing open and free markets for biofuels in trade negotiations, and supporting long-term extensions of biodiesel and cellulosic tax credits.

All leading candidates supported the top six issues to the biofuels industry.
