ICGA Thanks Senators Grassley and Ernst for Re-Introducing the Next Generations Fuels Act
Iowa Ag Connection - 03/24/2023

The Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) applauds the re-introduction of the Next Generation Fuels Act by Senators Grassley and Ernst. This bipartisan legislation reduces the carbon intensity of liquid fuels, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improves air quality and human health, and increases fuel efficiency through increased use of higher ethanol blends, all while supporting agriculture’s contribution toward addressing climate change and decarbonizing transportation.

“The Iowa Corn Growers Association fully supports the Next Generation Fuels Act, which will expand ethanol’s access to fuel tanks by setting an octane standard for vehicles and eliminating outdated legislative and regulatory barriers that have stood in the way of higher ethanol blends for far too long,” said Denny Friest, a farmer from Radcliffe, Iowa, and Iowa Corn Growers Association President. “Corn growers have been focused on this transition not only because ethanol is a top market for corn, but it’s also the climate solution that we need now.”

Once enacted, The Next Generation Fuels Act would increase ethanol demand by over 5 billion gallons per year, which would utilize 1.7 billion bushels of additional corn. This bill would also lead to a reduction of 111.1 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually, which is the equivalent of removing 23.7 million cars from the road every year.
