Ethanol Industry Aims for Year-Round E15 in 2024, Faces Legislative Hurdles

The ethanol industry is actively pursuing a permanent solution for year-round E15 sales in 2024.

The American Coalition for Ethanol CEO, Brian Jennings, reports that Congress is working on legislation to eliminate outdated EPA regulations restricting E15 sales in the summer.

However, challenges exist in finding legislative avenues within the limited remaining days of the year.

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor notes that seven Midwestern governors seek EPA approval to opt out of the E15 sales limitation, constituting about 11 percent of the U.S. fuel market.

The industry remains hopeful for progress amid ongoing efforts and regulatory processes.
