Unprecedented National Campaign to Expand Renewable Fuels

Posted on August 07, 2009

Consumers can enjoy more choices at the pump, gas station owners can experience product flexibility, and the nation can achieve its renewable fuels targets – all thanks to the blender pump and the distribution of E85 and mid-range ethanol blends.

An unprecedented new campaign is underway between leading corn-producing states*, the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE), and the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) to get 5,000 blender pumps installed nationwide over the next three years.

Join leading corn-producing states, ACE, and RFA for a press conference on Tuesday, August 11, just before the kick-off of ACE’s Ethanol Conference & Trade Show held in Milwaukee, to learn about the “Blend Your Own (BYO) Ethanol” campaign.
