The Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) is ready for 15% ethanol (E15) to become street legal – something that could happen at any moment.
RFA president and CEO Bob Dinneen, Vice President of Technical Services Kristy Moore, and Director of Market Development Robert White gave an overview of the most recent developments in the commercialization of E15 ethanol blends. Specifically, they discussed EPA’s acceptance of the RFA’s Misfueling Mitigation Plan (MMP) and the release of its E15 Retailer Handbook.
“The job now is largely the industry’s to make E15 a commercial reality and we are working hard to make sure that happens,” said Dinneen.
“RFA has been working on our plan for months,” said Moore. “The (MMP) plan includes not only requirements for the label and appropriate use, it also includes tools and resources to insure that proper wording appears on shipping and product transfer documents and the development of a fuel survey.”
“The exciting time of educating retailers and ultimately consumers is upon us,” said White. “As of today, we will have the new E15 retailer handbook in the hands of more than 13,000 retailers.”
