New Poll Shows Overwhelming Support for Bio Industry

Categories: Uncategorized

A new national poll conducted by the Mellman Group and released today by the Renewable Fuels Now Coalition, of which the WBIA is a member, shows widespread support for increased renewable fuel usage across the country.  

Amongst the findings:

  • Seventy-seven percent of Americans want the government to provide incentives to encourage refiners to reduce their use of oil and increase use of renewable fuels.
  • More than three-quarters (78%) maintain that increasing domestic ethanol production will help create new jobs and improve the economy in rural America.
  • Fifty-eight percent believe more use of domestically produced ethanol will help reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
  • Seventy-five percent of Americans view ethanol as at least somewhat important in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, with 41% viewing ethanol as extremely important in reducing greenhouse gas emission
