Trucks wait at the loading dock to unload corn at Siouxland Ethanol in Jackson, Neb., on March 17.

JACKSON, Nebraska -- A tour promoting E15 ethanol will hold an event at a plant in Jackson on Wednesday.

The E15 Now bus will visit from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Jackson Express, in a stop that is welcomed by the Siouxland Ethanol business. The ethanol promotion event is part of a nationwide campaign led by biofuel supporter  Growth Energy, which seeks the end of restrictions on the summer sale of higher-octane blends.

Those who will take part in the event include State Sens. Lydia Brach and Joni Albrecht.

Siouxland Ethanol director of industry and investor relations Pam Miller said the company turns area corn into 85 million gallon of biofuels annually. Miller said President Donald Trump vowed to end restrictions on higher blends.

"At a time when agriculture is waking up to headline after headline of actions that are destroying demand for our products, it is time this administration puts forth a rule-making that enables new demand," Miller said in a release.
