The Renewable Fuels Association and other groups are hoping biofuels will play a part in President Barack Obama's new plan to combat climate change. The Renewable Fuel Standard is the best example of an energy policy that is successfully reducing greenhouse-gas emissions, said Bob Dinneen, RFA president and CEO. "President Obama has been a strong supporter of this program, which has helped reduce this country's dependence on environmentally hazardous petroleum while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 50 percent when directly compared to gasoline," Dinneen said.
