CHS Incorporated is expanding access to higher ethanol blends by offering E15 at 19 additional terminals beginning this month. CHS is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency as an E15 manufacturer and sells E15 as an approved fuel-grade through its many retail locations. CHS will offer E15 at terminal locations ranging from Minnesota to Nebraska, North Dakota to Iowa, as well as in Missouri. “As the nation’s leading farmer-owned cooperative, expanding options for ethanol-blended fuel is important for our Cenex brand retailers and our farmer-owners,” CHS says in a release. “We have always been committed to offering ethanol-blended flexible fuels through our network of 1,450 Cenex brand retail facilities.”
The company continues to demonstrate that commitment by working with its terminal partners to offer higher ethanol blends in a broader geography across its retail network. To make E15 more accessible, CHS removed barriers for its Cenex brand retail locations by establishing an EPA-approved misfuelling mitigation plan, becoming the only E15 refiner to do so, and establishing E15 as a qualifying grade of fuel.
