Ethanol Report on E15 Hurricane Help

Cindy Zimmerman

Fuel disruptions due to Hurricane Harvey were mitigated somewhat, thanks to an early end to the summer restriction on sales of E15 (15% ethanol fuel) that helped offset gasoline supply shortfalls and limit fuel price spikes.

In this edition of the Ethanol Report podcast, Renewable Fuels Association president and CEO Bob Dinneen talks about how this should make the EPA rethink the outdated summer volatility regulation that shuts down E15 pumps across the country in the summer months. He also discusses his recent testimony to the EPA that high-octane ethanol blends in optimized engines can help the country meet 2022-2025 fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions standards, as well as comments on the latest proposed volume obligations under the RFS, and the hypocrisy of Brazil’s tariff on ethanol imports.
