WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released an independent analysis that shows how ethanol is projected to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) by up to 70 percent in 2022.

Growth Energy welcomed the report findings, and CEO Emily Skor issued the following statement:

“This new USDA study further supports that ethanol is a win-win for all Americans,” said Skor. “Higher ethanol blends provide not only tremendous health and environmental benefits, but economic benefits as well for rural America and our farmers. Our industry remains committed to cleaner fuel options for all drivers, and ethanol’s role in reducing GHGs is among the reasons why. We look forward to drivers experiencing these benefits and more when they soon have access to E15 year-round.”

What do @sheetz, @FamilyExpress, and @caseysgenstore all have in common? They sell E15, giving them a competitive advantage and offering consumers a lower carbon fuel option that saves money at the pump. #NACSShow Booth #7051 https://t.co/4fCcwQ96fo

By setting the 2022 RVO at 15 billion gallons, @EPA is ensuring American drivers have access to fuel that is: ✅ Lower cost ✅ Lower carbon We support EPA’s efforts to mitigate climate change and lower prices at the pump through robust RVOs. growthenergy.org/2022/10/03/gro…

WARNING! Savings ahead when you pump higher blends of biofuel! Save $0.30/gal by switching to UNL88 (E15) or $0.60/gal with Flex Fuel vehicles (E85). Oh and BTW any cars after 2001 that take E15. Higher the blend higher the savings. #lowcost #lowcarbon @GrowthEnergy @GetBiofuel https://t.co/BmIXCGpcJA
