Iowa offers a plan for the E15 Standard

The President of the Iowa Farm Bureau considers that his State has established the plan for an E15 standard.

Brent Johnson tells Brownfield that there is no doubt that other states will look into the recently signed Biofuels Access Act and want to imitate what Iowa has done.

“This is the first time we have an E15 standard, and given the challenges of higher fuel prices (and) some of the regulatory challenges, I think it’s important for other states to look for solutions they can take on.”

The new law will require most Iowa gas stations with storage tanks and pumping systems that can handle larger ethanol blends to deliver E-15 from at least one pump by 2026, and new gas stations will have to sell E-15 from at least half. of their dispensers.

“And I’m very proud of the state of Iowa for being proactive in that conversation and finding a solution for our consumers.”

Johnson, who cultivates west of central Iowa, says the E15 standard also helps lay a foundation for Iowa farmers as they face market instability and uncertainty. Iowa offers a plan for the E15 Standard
