WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration unveiled it’s proposed rule for the “Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule for Model Years 2021-2026.

The EPA will now open the rule to the public for a 60-day comment period and will hold public hearings in Washington, D.C., Detroit, Michigan, and Los Angeles, California.

Growth Energy, the nation’s top ethanol advocate, has been a leader in raising this issue going back to 2012 when the standards were first being implemented, as well as in subsequent rulemakings. In October of 2017, Growth Energy submitted comments to the Environmental Protection Agency 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.
WASHINGTON, DC – Following a year of milestones for the biofuels industry, Growth Energy, the nation’s largest ethanol trade association, announced the election of Dan Sanders as the association’s new chairman of the board of directors. Sanders is the vice president of Front Range Energy, a 48 million gallon ethanol production facility located in Windsor, Colorado that joined Growth […]
“My hope for you is that no one walks away from this meeting wondering if ethanol will work for your country,” said LeGrand. “The answer, as we hope to show, is yes.” https://t.co/jXrb4u3cip
