Growth Energy Statement on EPA’s Latest Action on Midwestern Governors’ E15 Request

WASHINGTON, D.C.–Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advanced to the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a rule that would grant the request of several Midwestern governors and allow them to sell E15–a fuel blend made with 15% bioethanol that can be used in 96% of cars on the road today–all year long in their states.

“This is a welcome step forward for farmers and drivers across the Midwest. We’re grateful to the governors of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin for pressing for uninterrupted access to low-cost, low-carbon E15, and we’ll continue to call on EPA and the White House to grant year-round E15 nationwide. Biofuels like E15 are a critical part of reaching our climate goals, and we urge President Biden to swiftly approve the expanded sale of E15.”
