Ethanol Groups Want Permanent E15 Waivers
“The EPA waiver only applies to this summer’s driving season and, without action, higher ethanol blends like E15 could vanish next year for many markets. That's why Growth Energy is pressing this administration and leaders in Congress for a permanent fix. America is the world's largest producer of biofuel, and we should be making use of our full capacity in the push for greater energy security and a healthy climate. In fact, nationwide E15 would slash carbon emissions by more than 17.62 million tons. That's the equivalent of taking almost four million cars off the road each year.”
She says biofuel supporters can get involved in the push for a permanent fix to the outdated summertime driving regulations.
“The President's waiver bought limited time for policymakers to implement a permanent fix. To make sure that happens, we invite listeners to contact their leaders in Congress through the Growth Energy comment portal at growthenergy.org/take action. Together we can increase the supply of lower-cost homegrown biofuels available to drivers and put another 30 billion money-saving miles in the rearview mirror.”
