Growth Energy Urges EPA to Combat Particulate Emissions with Low-Carbon Ethanol

Fri, 03 Jul 2020 09:04:44 CDT

Growth Energy Urges EPA to Combat Particulate Emissions with Low-Carbon Ethanol This week, Growth Energy Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Chris Bliley submitted comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the agency’s review of the national ambient air quality standards for particulate matter (PM NAAQS).

In his comments, Bliley noted that, "Through multiple rulemakings at EPA over the last decade including those on greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles and the Tier 3 fuel regulation, Growth Energy has submitted a wealth of data to further support the conclusion that ethanol decreases harmful particulate emissions... We think this is a critical opportunity for the agency to review this data as it reviews the PM NAAQS standards."

This brief letter to EPA reiterates previous comments submitted by Growth Energy to EPA in May, urging their Science Advisory Board to examine the impact of toxic gasoline additives on respiratory health, as well as the potential benefits offered by bio-based alternatives like ethanol.
