Steelworkers No Fans of E15

Submitted by on July 7, 2017 – 3:33 pmNo Comment

by Anthony Adragna (Politico’s Morning Energy)  The United Steelworkers fear Sen. Deb Fischer’s bill to allow year-round sale of 15 percent ethanol fuel could allow more smog. The union sent a letter Thursday to all 100 senators arguing that the RFS needs a complete overhaul rather than the modification in Fischer’s bill. The letter is a sign that lobbying on a bill to advance Fisher’s bill out of committee is ramping up – Fischer and company need to convince six undecided EPW Democrats in order to advance the bill.  READ MORE and MORE (Wallaces Farmer) and MORE / MORE (The Grand Island Independent) and MORE (The Fisherman)


Excerpt from Wallaces Farmer:  In 1990, Congress limited the amount of evaporative emissions from vehicle fuel at 9 pounds per square inch (psi) RVP. Pure ethanol has a 3-psi RVP, only when combined with gasoline at low levels, does the RVP of ethanol blended fuel exceed 9 psi. Despite E15 having a lower RVP profile than E10, E10 has been granted a 1-pound-per-psi RVP waiver, while E15 has not received the same treatment.

E15 produces lower emissions than regular gasoline, and E15 can be sold year-round in areas with air quality challenges. Using E15 nationwide would reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions by 39.5 million tons, the equivalent of removing 6.3 million vehicles from American roadways.  READ MORE  (emphasis added)
