Without marketing more of a higher blend of ethanol, refineries could be left blending ethanol into gasoline that is not used, just to meet EPA requirements, Hill said.
An alternative could be for refiners to start making more E85, which is a blend of gasoline with 85 percent ethanol, Hill said.
But most gasoline stations do not sell E85 and the majority of fuel makers have no way of changing retail stations to sell more of that fuel.
It can be used as moonshine or converted to vinegar. It can serve as a feedstock for many chemical processes or directly as a solvent.
Waste ethanol is an oxymoron.
Fuel ethanol production is a actually down quite a bit from a few years ago.
E10 is a waste of corn for food production, is inefficient to produce, and does not increase mileage.
E15 already is, and will cause untold damage to pre-2012 model engines and fuel systems.
The EPA scam continues.
Ethanol plants here in Indiana are closing up like old K-Marts. I doubt there will be an oversupply.
In the meantime, he no longer raises other vegees.
Maybe someone should tell Michelle that kids can't eat/drink ethanol in school.
Another government mandated boondoggle distorting the marketplace.
Watch for lobbying now to increase the blend past E15.
BS..read your owners manual... unless you have "flex-fuel" vehicle, using any ethanol blend higher than 10% invalidates the warranty and can cause serious damage to your engine and fuel system. Small engines like in lawn mowers and especially boat motors can be totally wrecked by using a single tank full of ethanol blended gasoline. Corn ethanol is a boondoggle that enriches corn farmers and ethanol producers and does not reduce the consumption of oil. It would be cheaper to just write corn farmers a government check for producing corn than to support this bio-fuel boondoggle.
-——a large oversupply of high-priced ethanol that has nowhere to go.——
How about drinking it?
100% not from the Taliban
DAMN the EPA to oblivion...their time passed before they were created. Castrate this deranged, power-grubbing, un-Constitutional agency.
