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.”
