Summary of Accomplishments

by Brian Jennings (American Coalition for Ethanol/Ethanol Producer Magazine)  … ACE believes the best way to grow demand well into the future is to harness the low-carbon, high-octane value of ethanol. That’s why we were very encouraged that for the first time ever, EPA requested information in 2017 on the role high-octane fuel could play in helping achieve vehicle emission and fuel economy standards. Automakers may need to optimize on high-octane fuels to comply with these standards and research indicates the lowest-cost, lowest-carbon, most efficient way to do that is with blends in the neighborhood of 25 to 30 percent ethanol. As EPA determines the trajectory of vehicle emission standards in 2018, we will remain active in communicating the benefits of high-octane fuel in future engines.

In 2018, ACE will also press forward with a constructive discussion about increasing demand for ethanol and improving the sustainability of agriculture production in a manner that maximizes greenhouse gas reductions. We are launching an effort to build consensus around the science related to corn ethanol’s role in reducing carbon emissions. From our perspective, there has been significant and meaningful work done in the past few years to more properly account for the low-carbon benefits of corn ethanol, and now is the time to forge scientific and political consensus on this issue.  READ MORE
