Minneapolis, April 27 – The Minnesota Bio-Fuels Association (MN Bio-Fuels) today celebrates 10 years of representing Minnesota’s ethanol industry.

“We are very happy to reach an important milestone in celebrating our 10-Year anniversary as an organization in Minnesota. MN Bio-Fuels was formed to represent Minnesota’s ethanol and other renewable fuel producers. We have and will continue to represent the industry at the local, state and federal level,” said Brian Kletscher, board president of MN Bio-Fuels.

He said MN Bio-Fuels was formed in 2011 to represent Minnesota’s ethanol industry at the state legislature and to regulatory bodies, as well as increase ethanol consumption in the state through promotional and educational efforts.

“Over the last 10 years, we have evolved to meet the dynamic policy, regulatory, communications and fuel supply chain needs of the ethanol producers in Minnesota. We’ve built a true team of professionals to drive biofuel supportive policy initiatives at the Capitol in St. Paul and with the Minnesota congressional delegation in Washington, D.C.,” said Tim Rudnicki, executive director of MN Bio-Fuels.

Kletscher, who is also the CEO of Highwater Ethanol, said MN Bio-Fuels would continue to ensure ethanol has a place in transportation fuels of the future.

“Ethanol has and will continue to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will play a major part in making our state a better place environmentally,” he said.

Besides Highwater Ethanol, the other producer members of MN Bio-Fuels are Al-Corn Clean Fuel, Archer Daniel Midlands Company, Chippewa Valley Ethanol Company, Granite Falls Energy, Guardian Energy and Heartland Corn Products.
