UL Approves Safety Certification for Two E85 Fueling Dispensers

Today Underwriters Laboratory (UL) certified both the Gilbarco Veeder-Root Encore® E85 and the Dresser Wayne Ovation® Eco E85 fueling dispensers.

“On the heels of yesterday’s release of the USDA “Biofuels Strategic Production Report” calling for transforming the existing ethanol infrastructure, this approval by UL opens a pathway for delivering more ethanol directly to the consumer. After nearly four years, this approval finally means drivers will have access to thousands of new locations offering higher level ethanol blends”, said Bob Dinneen, President and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association.

RFA and the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) have joined forces to form the Blend Your Own campaign aimed at installing 5,000 blender pumps over the course of three years. More on the program is available at www.BYOethanol.com.
