Happy Eight Years to the Green Jobs Waiver!



Happy 8th Year to the Green Jobs Waiver!

Eight years ago today, Growth Energy filed the Green Jobs Waiver to the Environmental Protection Agency to get higher blends like E15 available for commercial use.

Here’s a quick look at some of the milestones E15 has reached in less than a decade:

  • E15 is approved for 87 percent of the cars on the road.
  • More than 500 million miles have been driven on E15.
  • The latest research shows that ethanol produced from corn can reduce GHG emissions by as much as 59 percent relative to gasoline.
  • E15 can be found in 28 states, at 650 retail locations.
  • E15 remains the most tested fuel in history - In six million miles of testing, the Department of Energy found no problems with the use of E15 in the numerous vehicles selected.
