Ethanol a Hot Topic at ’17 Classic
by Andy Eubank (Hoosier Ag Today) Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly (D) joined Senators Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to introduce the Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act last week, a bill that would effectively allow the sale of E15 and higher ethanol blends year-round. Donnelly said the “legislation would expand the market for ethanol producers, opening more market opportunities for fuels grown on Hoosier farms.” At Commodity Classic Indiana Corn Growers Association’s David Gottbrath told HAT it would be great for corn growers all over.
The bill would extend the Reid vapor pressure (RVP) waiver to ethanol blends above 10 percent. READ MORE / MORE and MORE (Energy.AgWired.com; includes AUDIO) and MORE (Argus Media) and MORE (Biofuels Digest) and MORE (Bloomberg)
