Ethanol industry gets boost from EPA decision to lift E15 restrictions
The U.S. ethanol industry is celebrating a decision by the Environmental Protection Agency to lift a summertime ban on the use of E15, a fuel blended with 15 percent ethanol. The EPA’s action allows the sale of E15 fuel throughout the year.
“This is an important milestone for the ethanol industry that should significantly increase the amount of ethanol blended into gasoline. As a result, it will help us further reduce emissions and lower prices at the pump,” said Greg Thompson, PureField Ingredients CEO.
