ePure study shows European ethanol cuts GHG emissions 14% including ILUC

July 14, 2016 |

In Belgium, a new study by renowned global consultancy Ricardo Energy & Environment and commissioned by ePure has found that the higher use of ethanol in Europe would contribute to a 14.1% GHG emission reduction in European transport, even after possible land use change (ILUC) emissions have been taken into account.

The study builds upon previous Ricardo research carried out for the European Commission’s DG CLIMA and for the European Climate Foundation, both using the SULTAN model, but removes ar9ficial constraints on ethanol uptake by focusing on the introduction of E20 high-octane fuel, a fuel blend containing 20% ethanol and 80% petrol, and vehicles with engines op9mised to run more efficiently.
