Coalition Pushes EPA To Reconsider Limits On Higher Ethanol Blends
New White Paper Discusses Need to Grow Beyond the RFS
The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is the entry ramp to the fuel market, but ethanol production and utilization has only scratched the surface of its potential. Urban Air Initiative’s President Dave VanderGriend released a White Paper explaining the need to grow beyond the RFS.
Despite the limits on corn ethanol Congress put in place when creating the RFS, the EPA has the ability to help us expand beyond the constraints of a fixed RFS market, but has refused to take the necessary measures to do so. If more ethanol was simply added to gasoline, it would reduce toxic tailpipe emissions and improve public health by replacing toxic aromatics like benzene and toluene currently being added to gasoline.
By working together with Auto, Agriculture, Ethanol, Regulatory groups, and our elected leaders, this White Paper explains how to create true demand by obtaining free access to the market so consumers can choose cleaner burning ethanol blends.
