Great news! Year-round sales of E15 have finally been approved! That means that drivers across the U.S. now have the choice to fuel up with a cleaner, more affordable fuel option at the pump all year long.
Since our organization was founded in 2008, Growth Energy has led the charge in getting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to lift an outdated restriction that prevented E15 from being sold in the summer months.

New report released by @GrowthEnergy shows how “new innovations have allowed us to ramp up #biofuel production year after year, without expanding our environmental footprint.” https://t.co/Te6A10zblq
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…
