In this week’s news roundup, we see the rising popularity of fuel ethanol—from its presence at more fuel retailers to its increasing role as an important energy source for other countries. And, with the E30 Challenge giving drivers the confidence to try higher blends, filling up with fuel ethanol is looking like a smarter (and easier) decision than ever.
Both Sweden and Ontario, Canada are taking steps toward mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while researchers in South Dakota test the viability of ethanol production co-products as crop fertilizer. Get all the details in this week’s news roundup!
This two-part series by Jesper Hedal Kløverpris, Sustainability Manager at Novozymes, looks at how ethanol can help us reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and, ultimately, keep us below the 2° climate change threshold. In part one, we examine the link between transportation fuels and GHG emissions.
Distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) are an important co-product of the ethanol production process. In this article, we’ll take a look at how DDGS are used, how they contribute to ethanol’s overall sustainability and technological improvements to make them even better.
