Big Oil's Not So Smart Campaign

With the EPA expected to announce its final rule on the RFS next month, Big Oil has stepped up at is baseless attacks on ethanol and its latest attack comes in the form of a study largely based on science fiction.

Anyone watching last night's Democratic debate will have noticed renewable energy received some much warranted attention from the candidates, which was a refreshing change. Unfortunately, biofuels weren't specifically mentioned. 

Ethanol consumption this year may total 13.4 billion gallons, according to new RIN generation data by the EPA and ethanol exports by the RFA.

A new report by the Department of Energy (DOE) says higher blends of ethanol would play a crucial role in improving engine efficiencies and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for light-duty vehicles in the near to mid-term.
