Growth Energy and Veyance Technologies (formerly Goodyear Engineered Products), a manufacturer of liquid fuel dispenser hoses, announced Underwriters Laboratory (UL) certification of the Veyance Flexsteel Futura liquid fuel dispenser hose for use with mid- and high-level blends of ethanol.
This is the last equipment part requiring UL certification for mid- and high-level blend dispensing equipment, following a 2006 decision by UL to rescind previous certification and revise equipment standards for this type of dispenser. (Earlier post.) This announcement concludes the final series of UL testing for the “hanging hardware” which is attached to the basic fuel dispenser needed for a complete approval of an E85 dispensing unit.

Certification of a complete E85 and blender pump by UL is expected soon and Authorities Having Jurisdiction, (State and local Fire Marshals and Code Enforcement Officials) will soon be in position to accept mid and high level blend ethanol dispensers with complete UL certification.
Growth Energy had partnered with Veyance and provided financial support necessary to accelerate the submission of the hose for UL testing and, ultimately, certification.
