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.”
