Why Are Renewable Fuels Important to Nebraska?

Renewable fuels, like ethanol made from field corn, and biodiesel made from soybeans, are seriously amazing! Both veggies are grown in Nebraska and contribute to our nation’s food and fuel supply. Renewable fuels save drivers money, and reduce greenhouse gases and tailpipe emissions that warm the planet and are harmful for your health. When you choose biofuels, you are reducing your fuel carbon footprint and increasing our countries energy independence. Biofuels also provide jobs and support Nebraska farmers.

Fueled by Nebraska will lead the promotion of Renewable Fuels Month via its website and Facebook page. However, we encourage you to share content on your organization’s platforms from Fueled by Nebraska and its partner pages.
