Biden will announce emergency waiver on summer ethanol ban to combat rising gas prices​

Washington(CNN)

President Joe Biden on Tuesday will announce new steps his administration is taking to address rising gasoline prices across the country, including emergency measures to expand biofuel sales, countering rising energy prices amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The President is slated to announce that the Environmental Protection Agency will issue an emergency waiver permitting year-round sales of E15 gasoline, which contains a 15% ethanol blend, on a trip to Menlo, Iowa, where he'll visit POET Bioprocessing, a biofuels plant that specializes in the creation of bioethanol.
The sale of E15 gasoline is usually prohibited from June to mid-September because of air quality concerns. Under former President Donald Trump, the EPA issued an order allowing permanent year-round sales of the biofuel blend in 2019, but the order was overturned last year by the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.

At 2% bio fuel in warm weather helps to clean out your engine, and much more than that in diesel fuel and not warm weather puts trucks on the side of the road and costs thousands….

Regardless of the consumption pros/cons taking farmland out of food production is insane. It's worse than mowing down forests for so called renewable energy.
Clear cutting forests for wind turbines .

Clear cutting Canadian forests for biomass fuel overseas. Insane indeed, and hardly "environmental".
I think something like that is happening in Ontario but don’t know enough about it .

But it's not. It says timbers in the article when you read closer. This is a news release for a new contract. They've been supplying UK for several years already.

The funny thing is, they're trying to market this as "environmentally sustainable and renewable", implying that burning wood releases co2 which promotes the photosynthesis cycle... since carbon dioxide, rain, and solar energy is needed for the growing cycle. Also, after burning of the wood pellets the ash can be used as fertilizer which can promote plants to grow and enter a new cycle...and wood pellets are renewable, so they are a kind of green biomass fuel.

So apparently... clear cutting Canadian forests and releasing co2 that results from burning it is actually good for the environment. Who would have guessed?

Why did you think Trudeau wants 10 billion trees planted?

About a decade ago I worked on a fish boat with a fuel problem. Turned out they were using a high ethanol count fuel and there was bacteria growing in it, plugging fuel filters and even some connections. Disgusting mess to clean up.

If it is just wood waste and not useable fibre it is a good thing , not much hog fuel used these days .
This hog fuel. Just ground up. It can be pellet or brick form. A presto log with out the accelerant if you will. We have been exporting this for over a decade now. With the current ban on old growth logging this market, like reman lumber will fall on hard times.
At least there is no GHG when burned in Asia.

Biden calling the 8.4% inflation rate, the “Putin Price Hike” is the newest excuse. Prior to Putin invading Ukraine, the Inflation Rate was 7.6% and rising. The trajectory for +8% was there long before Putin. Dementia Joe, always blaming others for his blunders.

He first blamed COVID, then Trump, then Putin, now that Putin didn't stick to the wall, now it's the evil Greedy Oil Corporations.. Democrats never take responsibility for their own blunders.
