Ethanol — A Clean Air Choice
Using ethanol reduces harmful vehicle and greenhouse gas emissions, allowing us to all breathe a little easier.
That’s why higher blends of ethanol are recognized as a Clean Air Choice © by the American Lung Association.
Reduces Vehicle Emissions
Adding ethanol to gasoline reduces emissions of pollutants such as carbon monoxide, known cancer-causing chemicals like benzene, and fine particulate matter which can cause asthma and other health issues.
Lowers Greenhouse Gases
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, ethanol made from corn helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40-45% compared to gasoline. That’s equivalent to removing 11.4 million cars from the road for an entire year.
