An announcement regarding E15 could come this week. President Donald Trump is expected to visit Council Bluffs, Iowa on October 9 and use the occasion to announce the approval of year-round availability of 15 percent ethanol blends. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor hopes to hear good news in the near-term. “The President knows farmers are hurting and he wants action on E15 before the election.” With a downward trend in the current farm economy, Skor says E15 sales will help bring farmers better prices and more certainty. “It would drive demand for two million more bushels of demand of American corn. E15 also promotes U.S. energy security and helps restore growth in rural communities.”
