This morning, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor testified in front of the Subcommittee on the Environment of the House Energy and Commerce Committee about the potential of high octane fuels and vehicles.  She was on a panel which included Chairman of Illinois Corn Paul Jeschke, Vice President of Propulsion Systems at General Motors Dan Nicholson, President and CEO of American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers Chet Thompson, and Tim Columbus on behalf of the Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers (SIGMA).  Emily’s testimony focused on the importance of mid-level blends to octane, the success of the RFS in achieving access to the marketplace for higher biofuel blends, and the perils of sunsetting the RFS for a high-octane fuel standard.

Here are some notable quotes from her testimony:

“American biofuels are ready to move America forward. With a stable policy and access to drivers, we can deliver low-carbon, low-cost, high-performing, sustainable vehicle fuel solutions”

“Today, low cost, higher blends are available at thousands of gas stations around the country. Consumers have already driven 4 billion miles on E15 and are ready to use this fuel nationwide year-round.”

“Growth Energy has been a leader in pushing for higher octane, midlevel ethanol blends. We submitted the first proposal for a 100 Research Octane Number (RON), E30 fuel nearly seven years ago.”

"Within the first 100 days, there are going to be opportunities for the EPA, in particular, to take action to right the ship and restore integrity to the RFS." More from CEO @EmilySkor on expectations for President-elect Joe Biden's action on biofuels: agweb.com/news/policy/po…
