About Ethanol

Ethanol Benefits

Renewable ethanol is a relatively low-cost alternative fuel and is proven to be one of the most cost-effective carbon abatement tools in transport. It is widely available and offers the only realistic alternative to petrol. It is the only alternative fuel available that does not need entirely new ways and infrastructures, or major adaptions to the current vehicle fleet, to get goods and people from one place to another.

Renewable ethanol has many benefits because it:

  1. Reduces GHG emissions and can help improve air quality
  2. Encourages new technological innovation in advanced technologies
  3. Creates jobs and growth in rural areas of Europe
  4. Reduces Europe’s heavy dependence on imported oil by substituting petrol
  5. Encourages farmers to boost productivity, bring abandoned land back into production and use sustainable land use techniques
  6. Produces much needed high-protein animal feed, which is GMO-free, and reduces Europe’s dependence on animal feed imports
