Recently, a YouTube video was released and repeated misleading claims about biofuels. These claims are untrue, outdated, and debunked so we’re here to set the record straight.
Read below to get the whole story on biofuels from the experts, instead of a guy who didn’t know what a bushel of corn is…
With the ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 46% compared to gasoline, biofuels, like bioethanol, are the clean fuel solution available today.
Bioethanol made from corn and cellulosic biofuels derived from renewable biomass can significantly cut carbon emissions from fuel, meaning drivers can feel better about reducing their transportation footprint. And because bioethanol is the lowest cost, highest octane fuel on the planet, future internal combustion engines should take advantage of this characteristic to allow greater efficiency gains in vehicles.
Since 2008, biofuels have already reduced carbon emissions from U.S. cars and trucks by nearly 1 billion metric tons. Moving to E15 would reduce CO2 emissions the equivalent of taking 3.74 million cars off the road. And with off-the-shelf technologies and best practices, bioethanol could reach 71% GHG reduction relative to gasoline next year.
To address our nation’s urgent climate concerns, the liquid fuels of today must be improved and replaced with cleaner and more advanced liquid options that harness the clean power of biofuels.
The steady demand for biofuels has helped farmers make more efficient use of existing cropland, supplying consumer markets with more food and energy than ever before — all while protecting grasslands and forests.
Sure, we produce bioethanol for transportation, but did you know we also produced a number of other co-products?
Recently, the New York Times published a story – “Biden Outlines a Plan for Cleaner Jet Fuel. But How Clean Would It Be?” – aimed at lending a voice to perpetual naysayers of biofuels’ role in the Biden Administration’s efforts to decarbonize aviation fuel. The article is once again full of outdated information and misleading claims perpetuated by the oil industry. With current technologies, farm-based feedstocks – including ethanol and corn […]
WASHINGTON, DC –America’s top biofuel and farm advocates called on Democratic leaders to fix a major flaw in the House Ways & Means Committee text released Friday night for tax provisions of the budget reconciliation, which is set for consideration Tuesday. As drafted, the text could leave American farmers and biofuel producers cut out of […]
Last day of The Biofuels Academy! It’s been a great week of education and networking. Now to take it across the finish line. A big thanks to Zach Martin from @GrowthEnergy Who talked about what’s going on in Washington and how it effects our industry! #getbiofuels #LBDS #BFA2021 https://t.co/4IvDItodE4
"If we moved to a 15% ethanol blend nationally, greenhouse gas emission would be reduced by 17 million tons each year, the equivalent of taking nearly 4 million cars off the road each year." Read the full interview with Chris Bliley from @GrowthEnergy: https://t.co/vVgTqW7Rcr https://t.co/KOpktbWspM
