What the Experts Have to Say
When making a claim of this magnitude, it’s important to not only stand on your own two feet, but also next to those who are experts in the field. A public health claim like this must be backed by solid evidence. And the evidence is never more present than with those who work in the industry every day – those who know what’s right and want to make a difference for the better. When the experts say it’s time for change, it’s hard to not pay attention.
Aromatics in Gasoline are the new lead – just as we got the lead out of gasoline, we must remove this toxic brew from our fuels. Doing so will protect public health, particularly of our most vulnerable citizens, including children, the elderly, and those living in close proximity to busy roadways.Environmental and Energy Study Institute
If we are to secure a renewable future for America, we must focus on transportation fuels and recognize the important role biofuels like ethanol can play in providing clean, low-carbon octane for the next generation of vehicles.25X25
Replacing the toxic compounds in gasoline with biofuels as a clean, renewable source of octane not only protects public health but represents a significant reduction in carbon emissions.Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO)
There is a growing body of evidence that shows an alarming increase in respiratory and even neurological health issues near roadways and in urban areas. There is a clear link to the toxic, often carcinogenic compounds in gasoline. We can, and must, protect public health by providing cleaner fuels.Clean Fuels Development Coalition
Renewable energy, particularly in the transportation sector, can lessen our dependence on petroleum, reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases, and more important, protect the public from harmful pollutants. Ethanol as a source of clean and high octane will be an important piece of the energy puzzle as we go forward.American Council For Renewable Energy (ACORE)
As we look at the composition of fuel that the public is exposed to on a daily basis, we are learning it is a witches' brew of toxins and carcinogens. Ultra-fine particulates emitted from gasoline exhaust are a serious health threat, but one can only address this threat by using cleaner additives like renewable ethanol.Nebraska Ethanol Board
