Organizations Have Alternatives to Simplified E15 Label

Tue, 04 Jan 2011 17:10:13 CST

In formal comments submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Growth Energy and the Renewable Fuels Association have each proposed new labels for E15 that will, according to Growth Energy, more accurately provide consumers with the information they need to make educated decisions at the pump. These alternative labels were submitted because both organizations feel EPA's proposed label has shortcomings.

The RFA says EPA's label's shortcomings include - leading, unscientific statements, confusing technical information and unwarranted warnings. The association believes the label as written will seriously impair long-term progress towards achieving the country's stated goals for renewable fuels

Essentially, both proposed labels informs consumers:
(1) that the fuel contains up to 15 percent ethanol;
(2) which vehicles are approved to use such fuel; and
(3) that federal law prohibits use in other vehicles and engines.
The labels are designed to provide all information necessary for consumers to make an informed fuel choice and do not inappropriately impact marketplace perceptions of the fuel.
