Superethanol E85 emits 50% less CO2, and 90% less fine particles than its competitor SP95 Petrol.
Everything is produced in France
“100% of bioethanol production is done in France, explains its fuel manager, Nicolas Kurtsoglou. But it mobilizes only 0.6% of the useful agricultural area. Yet this allows to produce some 12 million hectoliters (hl) per year. ”
Largely enough for a national consumption that does not currently exceed 10 million hl. The remaining two million are therefore destined for export. “Even if the E85 continues to progress, concludes the expert of the union, we have sufficient room for manoeuvre. ”
