Growth Energy Calls on DOE to Set the Record Straight on Anti-Ethanol Study

Growth Energy is urging the Department of Energy to address a recent “inaccurate and misleading” study about ethanol that claims to be partially funded by the department. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor made the request in a letter to DOE Secretary Jennifer Granholm. Growth Energy says the study directly contradicts conclusions from the Department of Energy’s own Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Technologies model, which has been tracking the impacts of corn-ethanol’s lifecycle emissions since 1996. The study by University of Wisconsin–Madison researcher Tyler Lark claims carbon emissions from using land to grow corn can negate or even reverse any climate advantages of corn ethanol relative to gasoline. Skor of Growth Energy says, “Failing to address this research’s inconsistencies and departure from mainstream science could have negative consequences in our nation’s quest to decarbonize the transportation sector—both on the ground and in the air.”
