The Center for Agricultural and Rural Development at Iowa State University says that the ethanol blend wall can be overcome based off of their new economic study saying renewable fuel standard requirements can be met in 2014 and beyond through increased use of attractively priced E85.

The study shows if pricing of E85 is low enough to generate fuel cost savings, it has the potential to quickly increase ethanol consumption as much as three-billion gallons over the next year or two.

Researchers as Iowa State University say the E10 blend wall is an economic carrier rather than a physical barrier and that it can be overcome by increasing the incentive for drivers to use E85 to fuel their vehicles.
