RFA to COP26: Ethanol smart choice right now for decarbonization goals

October 31, 2021 |

In Washington, D.C., as leaders from around the world descend on Glasgow, Scotland for the 26th U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26), the Renewable Fuels Association reminds them that ethanol and other renewable fuels are available—today—to jumpstart global decarbonization efforts. A new one-page fact sheet released by RFA spotlights recent research and data proving that ethanol is an immediate solution for cutting greenhouse gas emissions from transportation.

“Ethanol already cuts carbon emissions in half compared to gasoline; with smart policy measures, ethanol can do even more,” said RFA President and CEO Geoff Cooper. “Ethanol can serve as a zero-emissions fuel for cars and trucks while also helping to decarbonize the aviation, marine, and stationary power generation sectors. That’s why our members have unanimously committed to achieving a net-zero carbon footprint by 2050 or sooner. We urge world leaders gathering for COP26 to take a closer look at ethanol and encourage them to include a prominent role for renewable liquid fuels in their national decarbonization plans.”
