Renewable fuel industry applauds nomination of Gina McCarthy to head EPA
Posted 4 March 2013 in
President Obama’s nomination today of Gina McCarthy as the next Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency was met with praise from leaders in the renewable fuel industry.
Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, noted that “Gina McCarthy has been a strong supporter of biofuels” and said that he looks forward to “working with her to bring sustainable, clean, homegrown American fuels to the consumer.”
According to RFA President Bob Dineen, McCarthy “knows the EPA inside and out and has typically approached challenges with a common-sense determination to resolve them in a timely manner.”
Brooke Coleman of the Advanced Ethanol Council called McCarthy the “perfect choice” and commended her deep engagement on the “development of the cellulosic biofuels industry and the administration of the Renewable Fuel Standard.”
Fuels America wishes Gina McCarthy all the best in her new position and is hopeful that she will continue to support policies like the Renewable Fuel Standard to promote oil alternatives, protect the environment and save consumers’ money at the pump.
