Labor Day Means More than Ever Thanks to Wisconsin's Biofuels Industry

This weekend, Americans across the country celebrate achievements of American workers -- including those who support the US biofuels industry, which has grown by leaps and bounds since 2005.
In Wisconsin, the renewable biofuels industry, including conventional and cellulosic ethanol, biodiesel and advanced biofuels and their suppliers, generates $4.2 billion of total economic output annually. This includes 19,080 jobs generating $982.6 million in wages, $182.7 million in federal taxes and $123 million in Wisconsin state taxes each year.
Nationally the renewable biofuels industry supports more than 850,000 jobs and generates $46.2 billion in wages annually in the United States. Altogether, the biofuels sector creates $184.5 billion each year in total economic activity for the United States -- amazing progress in just a few short years.
The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) creates competition in our nation’s transportation fuel sector, ensuring market access for cheaper, clean, low carbon alternatives to oil, creating choice for consumers at the pump. The biofuel sector has invested billions of dollars since 2007 to bring these fuels to market, driving economic activity throughout the United States.
