Donald Trump Ignores Biodiesel and the Loyal Voters behind It

Submitted by on September 11, 2017 – 2:44 pmNo Comment

by Lindsey Rae Gjording (DW) The Midwest vote helped elect Trump, but his campaign promises to defend ethanol have fallen short. Farmers struggle to get by with declining crop sales and outpricing from larger oil firms and German biodiesel imports.

Directly supporting 86,000 jobs, the renewable fuel industry ties in with farming in leading the entire Midwest economy. Over 40 percent of corn grown is used in ethanol, and ethanol accounts for over 90 percent of US biofuel production.

The EPA proposed again in July 2017, without the direct influence of Trump, to lower biofuel requirements. Unfortunately for Trump, he may have already alienated this voter segment by siding with big money over the American working class, which he claims to value dearly. It remains to be seen how the contending desires of the oil and corn industries will play out with the current government, one that is fickle toward past promises and not always clear about intentions. One thing is certain, this will likely deal a blow to any future campaigning Trump may have in mind.  READ MORE includes VIDEO “The Search for Sustainable Biodiesel” about Benin
