Novozymes pleased with RFS Ruling

RFS volume obligations for 2017 are finalized. Renewable fuel obligations are back on track.

“The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is fulfilling its promise. We’re glad the program is back on track," said Adam Monroe, President of Novozymes - Americas.

“Since its inception, the RFS has created more than 357,000 good-paying American jobs that can’t be outsourced. These workers, and the biofuel they produce, have helped us all breathe easier by reducing toxic emissions and protecting people’s health. They’ve also led America to a resurgence in American manufacturing, reducing our dependence on foreign oil. The RFS is a key reason America is achieving its economic, health and climate goals.”

“Novozymes has 1,200 employees in the United States and has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in biofuel technology development, putting scientists to work finding ways to turn biomass into biofuel, and building facilities like our $200 million enzyme manufacturing plant in Blair, Nebraska. We made these investments because the Renewable Fuel Standard is strong, stable and clear. With today’s decision, it remains that way.”

“We look forward to working with President-elect Trump’s Administration to continuing the RFS’s success and the benefits it creates for all Americans.”
