The state of Nevada has enacted new legislation that requires its Board of Agriculture to approve a 15% ethanol blended fuel (E15) as part of any fuel regulation adopted by July 1 next year.
Over the weekend, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed AB 411 into law.
Once the regulation is finalised, Nevada will become the 47th state to approve E15 for consumers.
Currently, E15 - marketed to consumers as Unleaded 88 - is offered at over 2,440 retail sites in 30 states and 230 terminals.
Consumers have driven over 21 billion miles on E15 to date.
Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor has applauded for moving to approve E15 as part of its state fuel regulations.
She said: “By signing AB411 into law, Governor Sisolak is providing Nevadans with the opportunity save money at the pump and fill up with the plant-based biofuels like E15, a fuel blended with fifteen percent renewable ethanol.
“Nevadans will soon have the choice to fuel up with plant-based biofuels through E15, a simple choice that not only saves them money at the pump but will also benefit the earth. We’re looking forward to working with retailers across the state to add E15 to their fuel offerings so Nevadans have greater access a liquid fuel that reduces their carbon emissions.”
