Attacks on the Renewable Fuel Standard are not stopping DuPont from pouring funds into developing cellulosic ethanol, said Jan Koninckx, the company's global business director for biofuels. Calls to repeal or scale back the RFS are misguided and the result of misinformation, Koninckx said. "The RFS really works, and that is why people are really paying attention and talking it down. If every law that came out of [Washington] was as impactful as the RFS, this place would be pretty damn productive," he said.
