WASHINGTON, DC –Growth Energy, the coalition of U.S. ethanol supporters, today issued a statement praising Dresser Wayne for announcing that that they have always, and will continue to, cover the use of ethanol blends up to E15 in all of their standard dispensers. CEO Tom Buis said this announcement is helpful in expanding access to higher blends of ethanol, such as E15, as sought in Growth Energy’s Green Jobs Waiver. Warranties on higher blends of ethanol are increasingly important as blender pumps and ethanol dispensers are installed across the country to give consumers more choice at the filling station.
Growth Energy’s Green Jobs Waiver seeks an increase in the allowable blend of ethanol with gasoline from 10 percent to 15 percent – a move that will create U.S. jobs, strengthen national security and help clean the air. EPA has indicated that a final decision is slated for mid-summer.
“Fuel dispensing equipment that can deliver higher blends of ethanol will help make our country more energy independent and more secure, all while giving consumers a choice at the pump that includes domestic, renewable ethanol,” said Buis. “We appreciate Dresser Wayne’s continued commitment to cover fuel dispensing equipment offering E15.”
