SCOTUS turns back petition to review E15 ruling
The United States Supreme Court has said it will not take up a petition that could’ve expanded sales of higher blended ethanol fuel.
The high court handed down its decision on Monday after Growth Energy filed a petition in October against a ruling that said EPA exceeded its authority when granting year-round sales of E15.
In a statement to Brownfield, CEO Emily Skor said she’s disappointed by the ruling and they’ll continue to work to ensure access to higher blends of ethanol fuel.
The agency extended a waiver that allowed year-round sales of E15 in 2019, but an oil industry group challenged the policy and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, ruled EPA acted outside of its authority.
Skor says the Clean Air Act provides EPA the authority to expand E15 nationwide and year-round.
