WASHINGTON, D.C. — Growth Energy today released the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Revised Final Determination Regarding Model Year 2022-2025 Light-Duty Vehicle GHG Emissions Standards.

“For several years, Growth Energy has strongly emphasized the fact that fuels and engines are a system and that high-octane fuels – such as ethanol blends like E25-E30 – should be part of this discussion,” Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor said.

“We have provided a wealth of data to show that midlevel ethanol blends can be used by automakers to produce smaller, more efficient engines that will help meet future vehicle standards. We will continue to remain engaged with automakers and government stakeholders to ensure that biofuels are part of any long-term plan for engine efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction.”

In October 2017, Growth Energy submitted comments to the EPA in support of the use of higher biofuel blends in the Final Determination of the Mid-Term Evaluation of Greenhouse Gas Emission Standard for Model Years 2022-2025 Light-Duty Vehicles. Growth Energy also filed comments in August 2017 with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to inform its preparation of an environmental impact statement to analyze the potential environmental impacts of new CAFE standards for model year 2022-2025 light-duty vehicles.

A lack of #coronavirus test plates makes it challenging to test as many people as possible. Our R&D dept is co-developing a method of washing plastic test plates for #COVID19 testing, so they can be safely reused. @novonordisk @lego_group @mieleprof @regionH @AmagerHvidovre https://t.co/VKwOSqNpCN

The rural economy is a deeply integrated system — each piece is vital to the functioning of the whole. With fuel demand decimated and international markets in free fall, biofuels have been hit hard. That hurt is branching out to corn as well.  reuters.com/article/global…
