ETHANOL SUPPORTED BY AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The American Lung Association continues to advocate on behalf of the U.S. renewable fuels industry.

Association director of communications in Minnesota Robert Moffitt says cleaner burning fuels like ethanol are proven to reduce air pollution.

"Ethanol is an oxidizing agent (that) helps gasoline burn cleaner. And when it burns cleaner, it has less hydrocarbons going into the air. It has less elements that contribute to ozone pollution. So anytime we can make the gasoline that we use burn cleaner, it really helps everyone."

He tells Brownfield the American Lung Association has been involved with supporting ethanol and other clean biofuels for nearly 20 years.

A recent report from the USDA shows greenhouse gas emissions from ethanol are 43 percent lower than gasoline.

"So if you're concerned about greenhouse gases and concerned about climate change, ethanol fuels are an excellent alternative to traditional petroleum fuel."

Moffitt says when drivers have a choice, they tend to choose ethanol because it's better for the environment and usually more affordable.
