Posted in Preston Features

PRESTON, MN – Chris Hanson, General Manager of POET Biorefining – Preston, traveled to Washington, D.C. February 3-5 to meet with Congressional officials and highlight the important role ethanol plays in reducing our dependence on foreign oil and revitalizing the American economy.

Hanson joined Growth Energy members, including CEO Tom Buis, for a series of bipartisan meetings on Capitol Hill. Discussion focused on the current state of the industry and stressed the importance of protecting the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and increasing market access for E15.

“America’s energy independence, economic prosperity and communities like ours are moving forward thanks to the renewable fuels industry. Policies like the Renewable Fuel Standard have helped bolster this progress which is why it is critical Congress keep the RFS intact,” said Hanson. “I appreciated the opportunity to meet with each office to discuss what the biofuels industry means to the people and communities in Minnesota and look forward to building upon this relationship going forward.”

During the trip, Hanson met with the offices of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Reps. John Moolenaar (MI-4), Yvette D. Clarke (NY-9), Bruce Poliquin (ME-2), Tom Emmer (MN-6), Debbie Dingell (MI-12), Dave Brat (VA-7), Joseph R. Pitts (PA-16), Frank Guinta (NH-1), Renee Ellmers (NC-2) and Elise Stefanik (NY-21).
