High Court Makes Decision on E-15 Challenges

The Supreme Court decided Monday not to hear the American Petroleum Institute and other ethanol opponents' challenges to E-15 - which Growth Energy says is a true victory for the American biofuels industry.

Time and again - Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis says Big Oil has challenged E-15 and Growth Energy's Green Jobs Waiver in attempts to deny consumers a choice and savings at the pump. Buis says this decision marks the end of these challenges.

National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says the proliferation of E-15 across the country will offer consumers a choice at the pump and create a strong market signal for this emerging industry. Buis now hopes oil companies will begin to work with biofuel producers to help bring new blends into the marketplace that allow for consumer choice and savings.

This was not just a victory for consumers - Buis says - but also America's energy security, economy and environment. As the industry continues to produce homegrown American fuels that reduce the nation's dependence on foreign oil - Buis says jobs will have to continue being created that can't be outsourced and drive research and investment - improving the environment with a cleaner, sustainable fuel.
