GRFA pushes ethanol as clean energy option at COP Lima

December 9, 2014 |

In Peru, as COP 2014 is fully underway in Lima, the Global Renewable Fuels Alliance (GRFA) reiterated that biofuels, like ethanol, are presently one of the most commercially viable, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reducing transport fuel alternatives to crude oil in the medium term. According to the GRFA, it is estimated that 25% to 30% of all global GHG emissions come from the transportation sector.

According to the GRFA, biofuels, like ethanol, are proven to reduce harmful GHGs from 40% to 90% compared to fossil fuels around the world. For that reason alone, policies adopted at COP 2014 must include the increased use of biofuels, like ethanol.
