Proposal Seeks Input to Address “E10 Blend Wall,” Reaffirms Commitment to Biofuels

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today proposed for public comment the levels of renewable fuels to be blended into gasoline and diesel as required by Congress under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. Developed with input from the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Department of Agriculture, the proposal seeks public input on annual volume requirements for renewable fuels in all motor vehicle gasoline and diesel produced or imported by the United States in 2014. The proposal seeks to put the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program on a steady path forward – ensuring the continued long-term growth of the renewable fuel industry – while seeking input on different approaches to address the “E10 blend wall.”

“Biofuels are a key part of the Obama Administration’s “all of the above” energy strategy, helping to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, cut carbon pollution and create jobs,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “We have made great progress in recent years, and EPA continues to support the RFS goal of increasing biofuel production and use. We look forward to working with all stakeholders to develop a final rule that maintains the strength and promise of the RFS program.”

BASF has announced the launch of a new, low volatile organic compound (VOC), fast-dry solvent-borne basecoat system in the U.S. and Canadian markets.

The ONYX HD Low VOC Productive System produces low VOC basecoats that are either waterborne or solvent-borne – the only system currently on the market that provides these options. The system offers similar benefits and performance to national rule solvent-borne basecoat systems, and meets all VOC regulations across North America.

According to the company, the product is easy to spray, offers enhanced de-nibbing, and dries quickly under common humidity and temperature conditions compared to other systems. Several collision repair centers have tested the new system and reported significant decreases in drying times leading to more repairs in less time, which can result in increased profits.

“It’s fabulous stuff to work with,” said Cesi Paglia, a paint technician for Provincial Chrysler in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. “Cars get out of the booth sometimes in 50 percent less time.”

Added Tony Castro, owner of ProCollision in Hialeah, Fla., “ONYX HD Low VOC workability is quicker and faster. The jobs are cleaner, and the end result is perfect. Because this product is formulated to mix perfectly with exempt solvents, my shop is VOC compliant without having to purchase any new or additional water-based spray equipment.”

Antonio Leandres, market segment manager for BASF’s Automotive Refinish business in North America, said, “This new system is a truly unique basecoat that offers our customers options they’ve never had before. A low VOC solution that dries quickly, saves energy, has excellent hiding capabilities, offers easy application and excellent color matching is something that is hugely beneficial and groundbreaking in the refinish market.”
