Ethanol News Update Posted on Biofuel Policy Watch

Just a quick note to mention that I’ve just posted the first of what I expect will be a series of news updates on my Biofuel Policy Watch blog. Today’s posting reports on news items and other developments during the last few months of 2012 and early 2013 that are relevant to the use and market acceptance of E15 ethanol and other higher blends of ethanol such as E85. This includes updates of legislative and regulatory developments at the federal and state levels, and other developments in the states promoting or otherwise affecting market acceptance of these ethanol blends. Increased consumer use of such blends, E15 in particular, is viewed as a critical step for the ethanol and renewable fuels industry to overcome the ethanol “blend wall” so that sufficient volumes of ethanol are sold in the U.S. to meet RFS volume mandates in the coming years.
