NPRA, lobbyists are against higher volumes of ethanol in fuel

An alliance of environmentalists, health groups and the US National Petrochemical Refiners Association is opposed to higher levels of ethanol in automotive fuel on the basis that it might endanger the environment, through changing land use, and people’s health, according to a report on ICIS news.

Representatives of the NPRA were talking to the Senate Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety the other week.

It is an interesting point, that adding an oxygenate to fuel might make the exhaust gas contain higher levels of pollutants than gasoline alone.
