The U.S. EPA issued a final rule on Feb. 22 that will allow E15 to be sold year-round in eight Midwestern states beginning in 2025. The ethanol industry has welcomed the rule but is expressing disappointment in its delayed implementation.
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem on Feb. 15 signed legislation that allows fuel retailers within the state to claim a fuel tax refund of up to 5 cents per gallon of E15 sold. The tax refund can be claimed for calendar years 2025 through 2029.
Growth Energy on Feb. 20 submitted comments to CARB regarding the board’s proposed changes to California’s LCFS, noting that the proposed changes ignore plant-based fuel options that could immediately help the state reach its climate goals.
In comments submitted to CARB on proposed amendments to that state’s LCFS, the RFA expressed concerns about a previously undiscussed sustainability certification program and the state’s continued delay in allowing sales of E15.
ACE has submitted comments to CARB regarding its 2024 proposed amendments to the LCFS. The comments focused on proposed “sustainability criteria” for crop-based biofuels, the need to approve E15 in California and the importance of E85 and FFVs.
