Leading Ethanol Company, REX American Resources, Applauds EPA Decision To Uphold Current Ethanol Blending Standard

REX American Resources Corporation (NYSE: REX), a leading ethanol company, today praised the decision by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to uphold the current corn ethanol requirement of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

The EPA stated its renewable-fuel standard was not causing severe economic harm and that its analysis with the USDA had determined that suspending the standard would reduce corn prices by only 1%. The EPA’s ethanol purchasing mandate stipulates that 13.2 billion gallons of ethanol be blended with gasoline in 2012, with that figure rising to 13.8 billion gallons in 2013.

REX CEO, Stuart Rose, commented, “Today’s EPA decision is welcomed news by consumers looking for more affordable options when filling up at the pump, as well as by all of us concerned with improving energy independence, deficit reduction and national security for the U.S. and continuing on the path of environmental progress. We applaud the EPA’s decision and view this result -- along with the built-in flexibility in the RFS allowing the ethanol industry to adapt output to market conditions -- positively in anticipation of the discussions over the RFS set to take place in Congress next year.”
