NCERC at SIUE Director Presents Bill Enyart with Fueling Growth Award

2014-09-22 11:46:29 SIUE.edu

2014_Hall_of_Fame_W#1B0AE4C[1]

The NCERC at SIUE staff was in Washington, D.C., for the second-consecutive year to award Congressman Bill Enyart (D-IL) a ?Fueling Growth? Award from Growth Energy in recognition of his commitment to the ethanol industry.

?From his work on the House Agriculture Committee to his staunch support of the Renewable Fuels Standard, Congressman Enyart has quickly emerged as one of the biofuels industry?s strongest advocates,? NCERC at SIUE Director John Caupert said. ?As a resident of the 12th Congressional District, I am proud to be represented by a true champion of ethanol who understands that renewable fuels are vital to our national security, our economy and our environment.?

Enyart was recognized for his work in defense of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), as well as his strong support of other biofuels initiatives. He has also worked with biofuels groups to oppose an Environmental Protection Agency proposal that would reduce the statutory requirements as mandated by the RFS.

?I am honored to receive a second Fueling Growth Award from Growth Energy,? said Enyart.  ?It is critical to our Southern Illinois farmers and our economy that we continue to forge new paths for ethanol research and corn-to-ethanol usage. I look forward to continue working on legislation such as my Biofuels Development Act to further promote corn research.?

The Fueling Growth Awards were presented during Growth Energy?s annual Advocacy Conference, where ethanol producers, suppliers and researchers from across the country meet to educate and inform legislators about biofuels-related issues and policy.
