Growth Energy applauded President Donald Trump’s announcement to move forward with year-round sale of 15 percent ethanol fuel blends. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says it’s a win for farmers, the biofuels industry and consumers. Achieving year-round sale, in time for the 2019 growing season, offers improved demand for corn. “For the first time, we have a clear commitment from the White House to get a regulatory fix in the pipeline for next summer’s driving season. Nationwide, E15 sales promise to drive demand for 2 billion more bushels of American corn.” Skor goes on the say the Environmental Protection Agency must now work quickly to move the rulemaking process forward.
