Ethanol Groups Applaud Ruling Allowing Marketing of E15 Fuel

Ethanol Groups Applaud Ruling Allowing Marketing of E15 Fuel
Two groups representing the ethanol industry hailed a court ruling favoring the EPA’s approval of E15 motor fuel for newer light-duty vehicles and flex fuel vehicles. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Friday morning rejected challenges by multiple groups against the EPA’s partial waiver which will allow the marketing of gasoline blended with 15 percent ethanol for vehicles newer than the 2001 model year. Nearly two-thirds of all vehicles now on the road are able to use this fuel.

Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy said, “This decision is a win-win for both the American consumer and our nation.” (You can read his full statement by clicking on the link below the story.)

Since the initial waiver filing in March 2009, vehicles were tested using E15 for a combined six million miles, health effects data on E15 was collected and approved, and a first of its kind misfueling mitigation plan was required and approved in order for retailer to offer E15. Today, at least one station in Lawrence, Kan., is selling E15 under the conditions set by the partial waiver.

“Today’s decision is an important step forward in the nation’s quest to diversify our nation’s fuel supply,” said Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen. “Adding an E15 option alongside E10 and higher ethanol blends allows consumers to make the fuel decisions that work best for them and their vehicle. Ethanol has a thirty year track record of safe and effective use in the marketplace and that record will continue. Allowing for additional ethanol use will help lower prices at the pump, create domestic jobs, and accelerate the commercialization of new biofuel technologies.”
