ePure says EU ethanol reduced GHG emissions by 71% compared to fossil fuels in 2018

May 30, 2019 |

In Belgium, ePure says European renewable ethanol delivered an average of more than 71% greenhouse-gas savings compared to fossil fuels in 2018, well above the minimum legal requirements, according to new certified data from producers. That continues a seven-year trend, as the climate-change-fighting potential of EU ethanol keeps improving.

Ethanol produced by ePURE members is refined from European feedstock and works at scale in today’s petrol cars. Increasing its use across Europe – for example through the adoption of E10 petrol with up to 10% ethanol – would make an immediate emissions reductions impact and help Member States to achieve their climate and renewable energy targets.
