Following the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s announcement it has lifted the restrictions on year-round sales of E15, Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor spoke with Brownfield Ag News celebrating this milestone for the ethanol industry:

“Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor calls year-round E15 a game changer for the ethanol industry, corn farmers, and rural America.

“Over time, the demand for E15 could boost the market for American grain by an additional 2 billion bushels every year.”

She tells Brownfield it’s harder to anticipate what’s going to happen in the next year, but Skor is hearing from retailers who’ve been anxiously awaiting the removal of burdensome Reid Vapor Pressure regulations.”

Ethanol is smart domestic policy, plain and simple. It's better for engines, it's cleaner to produce, and it supports rural communities. We drove that message home this week at the Global Ethanol Summit, as we push for the free trade of ethanol all over the world. https://t.co/smxBYJXxjH

We know ethanol burns cleaner than gas. We just released a new report that shows even more benefits: 1) Using less land for much higher crop yields 2) Using less water to irrigate those crops 3) Gas production process is far dirtier than ethanol process ethanolproducer.com/articles/16600…

Dozens of biofuel plants shut down because of these exemptions. That's not an exaggeration — it's already happened. If these rules from the EPA are finalized, we're no closer to reopening those plants. We're determined to make sure that doesn't happen. agri-pulse.com/articles/12713…
