It is a renewable resource derived from crops like grain or in Wilmar BioEthanol’s case sugarcane.
- Wilmar BioEthanol produces less than half the CO2 emissions of petrol.
- A renewable environmentally, friendly fuel source
- The major widely used alternative fuel in the world
- It is sourced from natural products like annual sugarcane crops
- If Australia adopted E10 blended fuel nationwide, this would lead to over 3 million tonnes of CO2 abatement per year.
- Ethanol blended fuels represent 3.5% of the world gasoline market.
- Ethanol blended fuels are widely used in countries like the United States and Brazil
- In Brazil, it represents up to 41% of the local fuel market
- V8 Supercars have been running on ethanol blended fuels since 2007
- A FFV such as the SAAB 9-3 running on E85 (sugar based) can have lower CO2 emissions than a hybrid such as the Toyota Prius.
The chart below represents the comparison of carbon emissions for various car models.
