Biofuel Industry News

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will propose increases in the amount of ethanol and other biofuels that oil refiners must blend into their fuel over the next three years, two sources familiar with the matter said.
Today, Growth Energy released a study conducted by ABF Economics that found that nationwide access to E15, a 15 percent ethanol blended fuel, could save drivers billions in annual fuel costs, create new jobs, and return billions to the U.S.
The U.S. House of Representatives on June 16 voted 221 to 204 in favor of the Lower Food and Fuel Costs Act, a legislative package that includes funding for biofuel infrastructure and a provision to allow year-round sales of E15.
