Very few people realize that plants, household trash and other kinds of waste can be used to provide food, feed, energy and materials.
According to a 2015 bioenergy outlook report released by the European Biomass Association, bioenergy accounts for more than 60% of all renewable energy consumed by European Union member states.
Industry Visits Congress
On October 6, Novozymes joined a group that visited and thanked RFS supporters in Congress. Among those visited were Senators Al Franken (D-Minnesota), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota), Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan), and Congressmen Rodney Davis (R-Illinois) and Collin Peterson (D-Minnesota).
A bipartisan Congress first voted to approve the RFS. President Bush signed it into law. Today that bipartisan support continues.
