Brownback Applauds EPA's Ruling On Grain Sorghum

Dec 10, 2012

Governor Sam Brownback says Kansas could benefit from an Environmental Protection Agency decision that says grain sorghum ethanol qualifies as a renewable fuel under federal standards.

Kansas grows more of the grain than any other state. Brownback noted in a news release 60 percent of Kansas-produced ethanol comes from sorghum. The Renewable Fuels Standard program requires the U.S. to produce 36 billion gallons of renewable fuel by 2022, with an increasing requirement for renewable fuels from non-corn sources.
