EIA proposes report updates

By | May 09, 2008
The U.S. Energy Information Administration has proposed some updates and changes to its biofuels production and usage reports. Proposed changes include adding a survey to determine the amount of denaturant used in ethanol and the reorganization of the tracking of ethanol. Rather than categorizing ethanol into "conventional" or "reformulated gas with ethanol," the EIA would like to split ethanol into two subcategories: E50 and above, and less than E50. Proposed changes that are accepted will go into effect in 2009.
