EPA ISSUES FINAL E15 RULE


Biofuels Industry Leaders, Stakeholders Celebrate Historic Announcement to Provide Uninterrupted Access to E15


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Friday, May 31, issued a final rule to allow consumers uninterrupted access to E15, a fuel blend with 15 percent ethanol. The announcement comes following a public comment period on a proposed rule and in time for this summer’s driving season. The EPA’s rule changes the nearly decade-old limitations on year-round E15, allowing consumers to have year-round access to the clean, lower-cost option at the pump. Previously, E15 sales were restricted in most markets from June 1 to Sept 15.
