WASHINGTON, August 30, 2017 - The National Farmers Union (NFU) is advocating for federal policy to encourage expanded markets for homegrown biofuels. They have recruited agricultural policy specialist Anne Steckel to aid the group in promoting legislation and regulation to make way for higher blends of ethanol, like E30, and advanced biofuels. “Federal-level policies like the Renewable Fuel Standard have reaped tremendous gains for the farming and rural communities that grow and produce renewable, bio-based fuels,” said Steckel, who recently left the National Biodiesel Board to set up her own consulting firm. The NFU effort follows a special order of business that was passed by delegates at the organization’s March convention. The NFU aims to benefit the environment and provide economic stability to America’s farming and rural communities.
