President Donald Trump will allow year-round sales of renewable fuel with blends of 15% ethanol, or E15, as part of an emerging deal to make changes to the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).
While the Renewable Fuel Standard is playing a big role in headlines this week, news stories are also highlighting some interesting numbers connecting the biofuels industry with U.S. regional economies.
