Agri-Pulse reports:

Washington - Agri-Pulse, the nation's leader in farm policy coverage, will investigate how the biofuels industry has changed and where it's headed as part of season two of the Deep Dive podcast series.

"The renewable fuels industry has a strong impact on farmers, rural communities and almost all consumers who fuel up with at least 10% ethanol in their gasoline tanks," says Agri-Pulse Editor Sara Wyant. "As farmers across the country are planting corn and soybeans - much of which will be processed into renewable fuels - we thought it was timely and informative to look at how this industry has grown over the last few decades and the challenges it faces in the future, especially with the Biden administration's push for electric vehicles."

This in-depth look at renewable fuels is sponsored by the National Corn Growers Association and low carbon, corn-based ethanol.

In this second season, farm broadcasters Spencer Chase and Ben Nuelle will produce five separate episodes which will be a "must listen" for anyone involved in agriculture and renewable fuels policy.

In the first episode, "Running on E," Agri-Pulse focuses on the history of biofuels and the policy surrounding the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). It includes interviews with many of the early and current leaders in the industry, including Sen. Byron Dorgan, Rep. Collin Peterson, Tom Buis, Joe Jobe, Bob Dinneen, Jon Doggett and more. Additional episodes will look at:

Everything you should know about Low Carbon Fuel Standards and why you should care.
About three years away;' Is cellulosic still in our future?
What's the impact and reality of electric vehicles
Navigating uncertainty post-2022

Deep Dive can be found here starting April 26. You can also subscribe to the podcast via iTunes, Spotify and Google Play. The first season of the podcast in 2020 focused on the dairy industry and earned Nuelle and Chase the Doan Award from the National Association of Farm Broadcasting for their series of reports.
