Growth Energy has helped more than 1,000 retail sites add higher ethanol blends like E15 and E85 to their product line up. We have the following tools available to help you, but we will also personally work with you to comply with all federal, state, and local regulations.
Your ethanol provider must have applied for and received approval for E15 production, must have an approved mis-fueling mitigation plan and agreed to participate and have paid for their portion of the industry compliance survey.
If you are offering E15 you must:
Last but not least, E15 must conform to the RVP requirements for your area based during the summer driving season: More information can be found at EPA’s web site.
For specific information about how EPA’s E15 waiver conditions impact your business, please visit EPA’s Web site.
Growth Energy Market Development’s main priority is to grow the market domestically and globally. Our priority on the domestic market front is expanding the E15 marketplace and we work directly with retailers to provide them with expertise to navigate the regulatory landscape. Adopting E15 is oftentimes easier than retailers think, depending on infrastructure already set in place. Many retailers can utilize their current infrastructure and purchase pre-blended E15, which also reduces the cost immensely for new infrastructure. For a new site builds, retailers have the option to purchase blender pumps and blend E15 through the dispenser on site with E85 and 87.
Our team is also always available to help walk you through the process or answer any questions.
Growth Energy is a one-stop shop for retailers and has a dedicated hub for marketing E15, full with brand guidelines, retail checklist, and consumer resources.

Despite 2020's challenges, we actually saw E15 expansion continue to rise. In fact, we saw 10% growth of retail sites offering E15 in 2020, and the fuel is now offered at over 2,300 stations in 30 states. More on E15 expansion in @EthanolMagazine → ethanolproducer.com/articles/18019…
