American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers challenges EPA’s E15 rule in court

June 12, 2019 |

In Washington, Chet Thompson, President and CEO of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, issued the following statement about a petition filed by AFPM with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit for review of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule providing a one-pound Reid vapor pressure (RVP) waiver to gasoline containing 15 percent ethanol (E15):

“We fully expect the court’s ruling to align with what the EPA and Congress have each previously concluded: the plain language of the Clean Air Act does not authorize an RVP waiver expansion beyond E10. Nothing has changed – a waiver for E15 is unlawful, plain and simple.”
