WASHINGTON — In remarks this morning, President Trump reportedly told reporters he supported approval for year-round consumer access of 15% ethanol (E15). Below is a statement from RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen: "We are certainly pleased to hear reports the president has endorsed year-round use of E15, providing consumers access to a higher octane, lower priced fuel option. It will be welcome news to consumers across the country, farmers who have worked to build value-added markets here at home in the face of increased uncertainty in export markets, and the investment community that has received conflicting signals regarding future markets for next generation biofuels." "If true, the report suggests President Trump intends to fulfill his commitment to a 15 billion gallon RFS. But for that commitment to be fully realized, EPA Administrator Pruitt must cease his campaign to destruct biofuel demand with unjustified waivers and other policies meant to undermine the RFS. We look forward to working with the administration to fulfill the promise of a growing and dynamic renewable fuels industry."
