WASHINGTON, DC – Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its label for fuel pumps dispensing E15, and final rules pertaining to the handling and storage of E15, in response to Growth Energy’s Green Jobs Waiver seeking regulatory approval to move E15 into the U.S. motor fuels marketplace.

In response to the label, Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis issued the following statement:

“We appreciate EPA finally releasing this rule in response to Growth Energy's E15 petition. This is another step in the process to get E15 into the marketplace later this year, which will create U.S. jobs, improve the environment and strengthen national security by displacing foreign oil.”

Growth Energy filed its petition with EPA in March 2009. Over the course of the last year, after exhaustive and rigorous testing of engine performance and emissions durability on motor vehicle models starting with model year 2001 and newer, EPA has approved use of E15 as a fuel blend in those vehicles.
