February 16, 2021 – Dan Sanders, Vice President of Front Range Energy, shares his views on the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction Roadmap in an op-ed published in ‘Colorado Politics’ print and digital editions. “Biofuels are scarcely mentioned as a solution in the plan,” writes Sanders. Clearly disappointed, Sanders criticizes the plan for lacking specific details and for “overlooking a readily available, homegrown, renewable source of energy (ethanol) – one that is scientifically proven to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by almost half.”

In the op-ed Sanders mentions two recent studies recognizing the value biofuels play in attaining net-zero emissions by 2050. He also urges leaders at the local, state, and national levels to “look at the science and see the critical role biofuels like ethanol can play in securing immediate and future greenhouse gas reductions for the transportation sector. Higher blends of ethanol really can put us on the path to a healthier, net-zero emission, 100% renewable energy future. E15, and higher-ethanol blends, are the most effective way for Colorado to decarbonize our existing motor vehicle feel right now.”
