The introduction of new fuel standards is a push toward energy and emission changes set to aid infrastructure. The White House is pushing this change under the Obama Administration. The action proposes cost savings for consumers and prompt upgrade of vehicles that are not within the years 2011-2015. The nexuses is connected to “AGRIBUSINESS: EPA Declaring War On Corn?” and energy solutions.
Big news from government states, “Several weeks ago the Environmental Protection Agency announced a proposal to lower the fuel standard of ethanol. This is the first week of the 60-day public comment period that runs until January 28. People who want to comment can go to www.regulations.gov to submit their thoughts. The proposed standard would lower the blends of ethanol and biodiesel in the nation’s fuel supply.”
“A criticism of ethanol are claims that older cars cannot support blends higher than E-10. The proposal could lower renewable fuels by up to 16 percent with biodiesel taking the biggest hit,” WHO TV.
Within any change causes those outliers to find a method to fit within the normal distribution. New fuel standards pushes consumers to purchase new vehicles that meet the standards. The outcome of new standards will have positive effect on the environment but place a burden on tax payers to meet the changes overtime to come under compliance by 2025. Moreover, education is needed to assist consumers in the role, methods and why factor for new fuel standards.
