Leveraging higher blends of renewable fuel like ethanol can make an immediate positive impact on the environment. Using more of this earth-kind fuel is critical to reaching ambitious climate goals to lower emissions and decrease air pollution. By itself, ethanol reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 46% compared to regular gasoline. A simple change to nationwide E15 would reduce CO2 emissions by more than 17.62 million tons per year — the equivalent of taking 3.85 million cars off the road.
A 2022 study from University of California – Riverside found that shifting from E10 to E15 reduces emissions, illustrating the vital role that higher ethanol blends play in protecting our air, our climate, and our health.
On May 31, 21 members of the House, led by Rep. Darin LaHood, R-Ill., sent a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai urging her to protect U.S. farmers and biofuel producers and prioritize U.S. #ethanol export competitiveness in Brazil.https://t.co/Ugx88bA1KT https://t.co/bmf7EjdNxA
Protecting #IA04 farmers and #ethanol producers will always be a top priority for me in Congress. I appreciate working with my @WaysandMeansGOP colleague @RepLaHood to ensure American ethanol exports receive fair treatment and robust market access in Brazil. https://t.co/pX246NiqLn
.@NUVUFUELS: "In Michigan alone, the higher biofuel blend offers drivers more than $1 billion in fuel savings annually, reduces emissions, and supports the state’s rural economy." twitter.com/Lwl_First_Look…
Celebrated the nation's second #E15 standard with @RFNebraska's Dawn Caldwell and Traci Menke. Thank you for your work getting #LB562 signed into law. Nebraskan families will see savings at the pump this summer! cc: @LadyOfAg https://t.co/uPgLthktdZ
