This two-part series by Jesper Hedal Kløverpris, Sustainability Manager at Novozymes, looks at how ethanol can help us reduce greenhouse gas emissions—both today and in the decades ahead. In part one, we covered the link between transportation fuels and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In part two, we’ll consider the role ethanol will ultimately play in tomorrow’s climate solutions, as well as what we can do today to help keep the world beneath the 2° threshold.
In comparing three different types of fuel, a new study has found that those with higher percentages of ethanol can bring significant health benefits. Plus, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has scheduled a public hearing on its renewable fuel standard (RFS) update. Just in time for the weekend, it’s your weekly bioenergy news roundup!
