National Sorghum Producers Applauds E-15 Announcement

LUBBOCK, Texas (April 12, 2022)—National Sorghum Producers Chairman Kody Carson, a sorghum farmer from Olton, Texas, applauded President Joe Biden’s announcement today at the POET Bioprocessing plant in Menlo, Iowa, approving the sale of E15.

“The sale of E15 is good for not only American sorghum farmers and ethanol producers but also the American consumer. Sorghum made into climate-friendly ethanol gives consumers access to home-grown, cleaner fuel that will help lower the price at the pump for everyone, and eliminating unnecessary summertime restrictions on E15 clears a major hurdle in greater energy independence and security for our nation. We applaud President Joe Biden’s action on E15 and appreciate Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack for his support of American biofuels, as well.”
