AMI Urges EPA to Deny Petition to Increase Ethanol Blend Levels

AMI joined a diverse group of business associations, public interest organizations and environmental groups in urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to deny a petition that would allow the use of so-called “mid-level ethanol blends” (blends above 10 percent ethanol, such as E15 or E20) in commerce.

“Any decision to introduce a new fuel formulation must only be undertaken after independent, rigorous and verifiable testing has been completed and concludes that such mid-level ethanol blends (whether E12, E15 or E20) will not pose a risk to all gasoline-powered engines, to public health, to the environment and to consumers,” the letter to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson states.
