GROWTH ENERGY WELCOMES FINALIZED EPA RULE ON YEAR-ROUND E15 FOR EIGHT MIDWESTERN STATES
Source: Growth Energy news release

WASHINGTON, D.C.--Growth Energy, the nation's largest biofuel trade association, applauded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today after it finalized a rule granting the request made by eight midwestern states to sell E15 year-round. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement in response:

"We commend EPA for finalizing its rule, and we thank the eight midwestern governors who have now successfully secured a future for year-round E15 in their states. This is a win for the residents of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, and a win for biofuel producers and fuel retailers.

"While this is great news, drivers will need a solution for this summer to minimize disruptions and make sure they have the same access to E15 that they've had for the past five summers.

"E15 saves drivers money while helping them lower their carbon emissions. We look forward to working with policymakers to ensure that consumers can have permanent access to these benefits all year long."

About E15

E15 is a fuel blend made of gasoline and 15% bioethanol. EPA has approved its use in all cars, trucks, and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) made in model year 2001 and newer--representing more than 96% of all vehicles on the road today. E15 can be found at over 3,400 gas stations across the country and to date, Americans have driven more than 100 billion miles on this fuel blend. Last summer drivers saved an average of 15 cents per gallon by filling up with E15 compared to regular, or E10. In some areas, E15 saved drivers as much as $.60 per gallon at the pump.
