A new, educational website was launched this week that is intended to raise awareness about the economic, environmental, hunger and engine performance implications of current U.S. biofuels policy. 

SmarterFuelFuture.org is supported by a number of organizations, including the National Chicken Council, that have and will continue to voice concern about the many negative effects of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and other biofuel policies.  The groups are calling on lawmakers to revisit the failed RFS and enact policies that take their collective concerns into account.

SmarterFuelFuture.org‘s Mission Statement states that Americans deserve a policy framework where:

  • Goals and outcomes are informed by markets, not mandates
  • Our natural resources are used strategically and efficiently
  • America’s crops and cropland are dedicated to providing food and feed, not fuel
  • Consumers’ right to safety and value come first
  • The success of policies and programs are evaluated on real-world performance, and are not vulnerable to fraud and manipulation
