Sioux Falls, SD (March 26, 2013) – For the second year in a row the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) has created an ‘infographic’ promoting the benefits of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Entitled “An American Success Story,” the new infographic pinpoints how the RFS is accomplishing the goals set by Congress.
“ACE’s infographic is a vivid and effective ‘show and tell’ tool for ethanol advocates to use in proactively promoting the benefits of the RFS,” said Brian Jennings, ACE Executive Vice President. “The RFS costs taxpayers nothing and has spurred technology innovations, efficient feedstock and biofuel production, increased feed availability, and jobs that can’t be outsourced. I encourage all ethanol supporters to use this infographic, share it with their politicians and media members, and help us show how the RFS delivers benefits for everyone,” said Jennings.
The infographic cites data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration and other reliable third parties and shows key ethanol accomplishments since the RFS was enacted, including consumer savings at the pump, helping to reduce oil imports and replacing the need for 462 million barrels of imported oil, how U.S. ethanol production compares to the amount of gasoline that could be produced from the Bakken Oil Shale development or from the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline project, how much pollution is reduced by ethanol, and how E15 fuel is the most tested motor fuel on the market today.
