HOUSTON (ICIS)--A US appeals on Friday court ruled in favour of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) allowance of E15 ethanol-blend gasoline for most US cars.
The US Appeals Court in Washington threw out a challenge by petroleum, grocery and automobile associations who claimed E15 could harm engines and was inadequately tested.
E15 gasoline includes 15% ethanol. The ruling impacts nearly two thirds of all vehicles on the road.
The court action was hailed by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), a corn ethanol trade group.
