Growth Energy is debunking myths about summertime E15 sales

Growth Energy is talking about the accusations surrounding summertime E15 sales, specifically the fact that the high ethanol blend creates more smog in warmer months. Growth Energy says it has been proven untrue.

“No, in fact it’s really an unfounded claim. E15 actually is lower in volatility than regular gasoline that you see at the pump today. In fact, there are numerous studies out there that show E15 reducing emissions and improving air quality, reducing harmful air toxics, reducing particulate emissions.”

Growth Energy says ethanol has a nearly 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional gasoline.
