Biofuels groups are hailing the approval of higher ethanol
blends in the nation’s fourth-largest fuel market.
Renewable Fuels Association CEO Geoff Cooper calls the New
York Department of Agriculture and Markets’ decision to allow the sale of E15 in
the state “great news for New York drivers and great news for American ethanol
Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says by transitioning from E10
to E15, New York will lower its carbon emissions the equivalent of removing about
130,000 vehicles from the state’s roads.
American Coalition for Ethanol CEO Brian Jennings also applauded
the move. But he says ACE is
disappointed New York appears to be following the footsteps of the EPA in
trying to restrict consumer access to mid-level ethanol by prohibiting the sale
of 16 to 50 percent blends.
Skor says Growth Energy looks forward to working with retailers across the state to quickly get E15 into the market and establish New York’s continued leadership in low-carbon fuels.
