Earth Day is a perfect time to reflect on how we interact with the world and what we are doing to improve it. And if you’re fueling up your car with higher-ethanol blends, like E15 or E85, you’re using more renewable fuel in each gallon, meaning less toxins in the air we breathe.

Let’s take a closer look at how biofuels are helping to make every day Earth Day:

Ethanol reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 39% over gasoline – or 110 million metric tons annually

Cutting-edge cellulosic ethanol can reduce carbon emissions by 100% or more and recycle waste

Research shows that biofuels reduce dangerous pollutants by up to 50%, including smog and ultra-fine particles

Ethanol blends like E15 save drivers up to $0.10 per gallon compared to regular gasoline

By choosing E15 this Earth Day, you’re choosing an engine-friendly, earth-smart fuel alternative that keeps your wallet happy. Happy Earth Day!

As @RepCheri Bustos says here, the biofuels industry has a cascading effect on agriculture — it promotes strong supply chains and multiplies rural economic output. Abuse of the Renewable Fuel Standard through refinery exemptions only serves to harm the ag economy.

In a letter to the IRS, GE CEO @EmilySkor proposes applying the 45Q performance based carbon tax credit to carbon capture projects at ethanol plants as a way to incentivize and expand their further use. Biofuel producers are ready to do more!  See the letter here:
