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 new proposal includes revised fuel economy and greenhouse gas emission standards for light duty vehicles. 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.
“This proposal provides a valuable opportunity to highlight the benefits of high-octane, low-carbon fuels, such as mid-level ethanol blends like E30,” said Growth Energy Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Chris Bliley. “We look forward to participating in this discussion to show how ethanol blends can help automakers meet future GHG standards and provide immediate consumer benefits.”
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.
