Michigan Radio reports on a new study from Michigan State University that shows that ethanol is reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The study by researchers Dr. Bruce Dale and Dr. Seungdo Kim shows increased efficiency in all phases of ethanol production from planting to the pump.
The overall positive benefit to the environment is impressive. The researchers “claim blended fuel using ethanol reduced carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 1.4 million metric tons, or the equivalent of 294,000 cars.”
Why Chicago E15?
In 2012, ethanol use reduced carbon emissions equal to removing 5.2 million vehicles from the road.
Drivers would save 5 to 15 cents with E15.
Better for engines
Ethanol is a higher-octane fuel that improves engine performance.
