The Battle Continues for Year-Round E15

Sales of E15 are prohibited in the U.S. from June through September due to air quality concerns. But advocates for the corn industry continue to press the U.S. EPA to authorize year-round sales.

Attorneys general from Nebraska and Iowa sued the EPA contending agency officials failed to respond to their state’s petition for summer sales of E15 within the required 60-day window, as part of an ongoing campaign by the governors of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin to allow for summer sales in their states.

The day after the filing of this suit, a coalition of 24 corn and renewable fuel organizations sent an open letter to the EPA asking for clarity and new summer E15 rulings to be finalized by the end of this summer.

Meanwhile, President Biden issued an emergency waiver for the second consecutive year allowing for summer sales, but if the EPA’s proposed ruling goes into effect as planned before next June, sales will be banned moving forward.
