BIO Testimony to the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment and Climate Change: “Building a 100 Percent Clean Economy”
Thanks to biotechnology, advances in biofuels made from renewable resources and waste feedstocks can be used to decarbonize our roadways, seaways, and airways. In order to achieve the goal of a 100 Percent Clean Economy for this segment of the transportation sector, stable and supportive policy is critical to drive investment and consumption of sustainable biofuels.
We have already seen the environmental benefits biofuels have provided in decarbonizing light-duty vehicles (LDV). The development and advancement of advanced biofuels will be essential to decarbonizing industries such as long-haul trucking, aviation, and marine shipping.
