Growth Energy announced this week that in just five months, American drivers have surpassed another billion miles on E15, bringing the total miles driven across the U.S. to two billion. Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says the two-billion-mile mark is an exciting milestone for the industry.
E15 is approved for use in all vehicles 2001 and newer, as well as, all flex-fuel vehicles, which combined represent more than 87 percent of the vehicles on the road. Skor explains the increasing popularity of E15 fuels.
The increasing demand and use of E15 bring more market opportunity for corn farmers.
Through the Prime the Pump program, Growth Energy is working to continually expand demand for biofuels.
