Law mandating ethanol use

DON'T MISS: Bills To Kill Renewable Fuel Law, Ban E15 Ethanol Fuel Likely Doomed Ethanol-blended fuel can be found at many gas stations, but only a handful of states require it, according to a recent survey of laws conducted by .

The corn ethanol target was 15 billion US gallons by 2015.13 countries in the Americas have mandates or targets in place or under consideration, 12 in Asia-Pac, 11 in Africa and the Indian Ocean, and 2 from non-EU countries in Europe.Besides the EU, the major blending mandates that will drive global demand are those set in the US, China and Brazil – each of which has set targets – or, in the case of Brazil, is already there – at levels in the 15-27 percent range by 2020-2022.EERE distributes the funding through an annual competitive solicitation to state energy offices. Fleets that use fuel blends containing at least 20% biodiesel (B20) may earn credits toward their annual requirements.Federal fleets are also required to use alternative fuels in dual-fuel vehicles unless the U. Department of Energy (DOE) determines an agency's vehicle requests qualify for waivers; grounds for a waiver include lack of alternative fuel availability and cost restrictions (per EPAct 2007, section 701).By early 2013 there were around 11 million E85-capable vehicles on U. Like the limitations suffered by sales of E85, commercialization of E15 is constrained by the lack of infrastructure as most fuel stations do not have enough pumps to offer the new E15 blend, few existing pumps are certified to dispense E15, and no dedicated tanks are readily available to store E15.
