New Growth Energy report shows E15 transition would equal removing 3.85M cars from the road

December 8, 2020 |

In Washington, Growth Energy released a new report examining the potential climate benefits of a nationwide transition from the standard E10 to an E15 blend. The report was authored by Air Improvement Resource, Inc. (AIR), a leading research firm in the area of mobile source emissions modeling and technology, at the request of Growth Energy.

“Based on our analysis, we estimate that if the United States transitioned from E10 to E15 in the nation for 2001 and later model year vehicles, GHG emissions would be lower by 17.62 million tons per year, which is the equivalent of removing approximately 3.85 million vehicles from the road,” wrote the study’s authors, who utilized data collected from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and Argonne National Lab’s Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Technologies (GREET) Model.
