The Renewable Fuels Association is launching video commercials this week that will inform millions of Americans about the benefits of the renewable fuels industry.
The two 30-second commercials feature residents of Hereford, Texas who are involved in the renewable fuels industry. In the ad titled "Faces" the critical role that ethanol has in America's energy future is explained. In the other ad, entitled "Places," Hereford highlights the fact that it is the "Beef Capital of the World" but also that it is the "Ethanol Capital of Texas."
"America's ethanol producers are on the leading edge of an energy evolution in this country, but far too often aren't given the credit they deserve," said Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen. "As oil supplies peak and jobs are shipped overseas, ethanol is providing much needed energy security and economic opportunity today. This industry is about real people all across the nation committed to doing their part to ensure a brighter energy future for generations to come. Hereford, Texas, with 1.5 million cattle and two ethanol bio-refineries epitomizes the importance of ethanol to America's energy and economic security."
