State regulations have a major impact on the market for ethanol. For example, California alone commands nearly 1.5 billion gallons of ethanol with Californians driving nearly 1 billion miles each and every day. Growth Energy has been a leader in advocacy engagement on California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard keeping the market open for the last five years for Midwestern starch ethanol.
Growth Energy continues to knock down state and technical barriers to higher ethanol blends. New York is the fourth largest gasoline market in the country, yet it prohibits E15, so Growth Energy is working to lift the cap on ethanol in New York.
