Renewable Fuel Association Pressing for Year-Round E15

03/08/2019

The EPA has referred a proposal for year-round E15 to the Office and Management and Budget for review. Despite the haste with which the RFA proposal was reviewed by the EPA, the reality is that there is not the distribution infrastructure to allow for sale of more than standard E10 (10 percent dilution of gasoline with ethanol).

The ethanol industry hit the blend wall in 2017 with E10 and is having to export excess production. A number of ethanol refineries have been mothballed as denoted by a decline in the availability of DDGS. As we pass into the second quarter of 2019, economic realities are now shaping the future of the ethanol industry. There would be no ethanol production without mandates and the RFS.
