U.S. Ethanol Policy Under Siege

Submitted by on April 9, 2018 – 12:24 pmNo Comment

by Robert Rapier (Forbes)  … Mr. Constantine (Tim Constantine, a spokesperson for Rethink Ethanol) believes that we will soon see an announcement from the White House on the nation’s ethanol program, and it’s probably not going to be one the ethanol industry is going to like.

“The most logical thing in the view of Rethink Ethanol would be to sunset the requirements after 2022 when the program shifts to the whim of the EPA administrator. The ethanol industry would have had 15 years to develop their market. If they are to stand on their own, they should be able to do so at this point. After 15 years they should be responsible for themselves and not depend on a government program. “

Of course, the ethanol industry will continue to protest that oil companies control the distribution and sales infrastructure. But there is nothing to stop a state like Iowa, which is the global leader in ethanol production, from moving aggressively to encourage ethanol (as E85, for example) to become the de facto fuel of choice for the entire state. If other states in the Midwest followed, the ethanol-producing states could control their own destiny.  READ MORE
