Senate Votes for Ethanol

The US Senate voted last night, 65-27, to pass an energy bill. Among the key provisions:
  • This bill increased the current 7.5 billion gallon RFS to 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels by 2022, 15 billion gallons from corn-based ethanol.
  • Additionally, this bill included studies on the feasibility of ethanol pipelines, higher blend levels, and the optimization of FFVs.
This is a step in the right direction for US Energy security.
