Oil Industry Joins Others Attempting to Block E15

Submitted by on November 10, 2010 – 2:42 pmNo Comment

by Philip Brasher (Des Moines Register)  The oil industry is joining with food manufacturers, livestock producers and fast-food restaurants in an effort to block an increase in the amount of ethanol that can be added to gasoline.

They say the Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have the authority to permit higher ethanol blends in some vehicles but not in others. The EPA last month agreed to allow cars and trucks that are 2007 and newer to run on gasoline with 15 percent ethanol, a blend known as E15.

…”This legal action will give EPA a second chance to get this important decision right,” said Scott Faber, vice president for federal affairs at the Grocery Manufacturers Association.

His group was joined by the American Petroleum Institute and a series of livestock and food industry groups, including the National Pork Producers, National Council of Chain Restaurants and the American Meat Institute, in asking a federal appeals court to block the EPA’s E15 decision.

…The EPA said its E15 decision was “based on strict adherence to the Clean Air Act and grounded firmly in science. The agency relied on numerous rounds of rigorous testing on 19 car models and, at every step, worked in close consultation with automakers and fuel suppliers.”   READ MORE  and MORE  (Detroit News)
