The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released its Draft Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks report, which shows that in 2018, greenhouse gases rose 2.9% from 2017 – mostly due to increased carbon dioxide from fossil fuel combustion.
That’s a significant jump in just one year.
As the U.S. and nations around the world are looking to reduce their carbon footprint and combat climate change, biofuels are the foremost climate and human health solution available around the world. And it’s readily available at a lower cost than conventional gasoline.
- Corn ethanol reduces GHG emissions by 39% compared to conventional gasoline, and has the potential to reduce emissions by as much as 76%.
- The next generation of advanced biofuels, like cellulosic ethanol, can reduce GHG emissions by 100% or more.
- And you can breathe easy, because biofuel helps to displace toxic petroleum chemicals that have been proven to cause cancer and smog.
