What is a “Blender Pump?” Not new technology Already found in over half the dispensers in the country Offers consumers more choices at the pump Dispenser will blend to make various blends of ethanol Typically two tanks, process usually uses E10 and E85 or denatured ethanol Any blend above E15 is for use in FFVs only
How does a blender pump work?
Blender Pumps - What’s in it for you? More product choices for consumers on same footprint. Qualifies for partial federal infrastructure tax credit. Typically uses existing tanks and pipes – huge cost savings. Ethanol plants can sell direct – bypass terminal markup. Flexibility for future approval of mid-level ethanol blends. Pump paid for by sale of all products, not just E85. Faster inventory turnover, protection against market swings.
