Advanced Ethanol Blend Pilot Program

Expired: 01/01/2012

The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (Department) will begin monitoring the blending of fuels containing higher amounts of advanced (non-corn based) ethanol, ranging from 10% to 85% (E10-E85), on a trial basis until January 1, 2012. The Department will also be responsible for monitoring the equipment used for dispensing the fuel. Advanced ethanol is defined as hydrous or anhydrous ethanol derived from sugar or starch, other than corn starch. In addition, hydrous ethanol blends of E10, E20, E30, and E85 will be tested on a trial basis. (Reference Louisiana Revised Statutes 3:3761-3:3762)
