POET CEO responds to Supreme Court decision on E15

By Staff | Jun 26, 2013

SIOUX FALLS, SD — POET CEO Jeff Lautt on Monday issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the challenge by the oil industry and others of E15 (15 percent ethanol fuel) for cars and trucks 2001 and newer:

“The Supreme Court’s decision today clears the way for more fuel options for U.S. drivers,” Lautt said. “We think drivers deserve reliable choices at the pump. By denying the challenge from renewable fuel opponents to limit growth of clean, American-made fuel, those choices will be available to even more consumers.

“POET, along with DSM, is building a commercial-scale cellulosic biofuel plant in Iowa that will use corn cobs, leaves and other crop residue to make renewable fuel. As the biofuels market is allowed to grow, this technology will spread even more quickly across the country. Today’s decision allows that growth to occur.”
