Listen: Cellulosic ethanol attempts a comeback, and Congress tackles a crude policy framework

On this week’s Capitol Crude, Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang explain how the US Congress is looking to lay the groundwork for future crude oil policy, meaning it's a perfect time to start paying attention to it, despite its reputation for being stuck in a cycle of dead-end legislation and inaction.

Additionally, while times have been tough for the cellulosic biofuels industry, new hope arises after a plant opening and two more major facilities are set to come online soon.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy
news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol.
