Growth Energy Supports Shift in Tax Incentive

Ethanol backers say it is time to move past production, put incentives in place to build delivery infrastructure.

Ethanol supporters in Growth Energy are saying production has been built to competitive levels and it is now time to move on to building a delivery system that will allow consumers to choose to fuel their cars with ethanol.

Growth Energy leaders appeared in Washington in July, asking Congress to consider shifting the 45-cents per gallon tax incentive that now goes to blenders of ethanol to retailers to support installation of blender pumps and to automakers to support the manufacture of flex fuel vehicles.

Bob Casper, Poet ethanol products president, talks about that effort in the video below.
