Ethanol Fights Smog: CRFA - Articles Surfing

(NC)-As the first smog alert warnings of the season approach, Canadians are being urged to use ethanol-blended fuel to alleviate the urban smog problems plaguing many parts of the country. Many regions such Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and most parts of Ontario have experienced a significant increase in the number of "smog days" in recent years and the problem is getting worse according the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association.

Mr. Bliss Baker, President of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA), suggests motorists fill-up with ethanol-blended gasoline. "All vehicles can use ethanol blends and this is one way of addressing the issue of air pollution," said Mr. Baker.

An ethanol blend of only 10% produces 30% less smog forming carbon monoxide than standard gasoline and is a proven smog fighter.

"This is no longer an urban problem," said Mr. Baker. Many rural parts of the country are now experiencing poor air quality particularly in the spring and summer months. The good news is there is something we can do about it," concluded Mr. Baker.

There are currently over 1,100 gas stations in Canada that sell ethanol- blended fuel across the country from Alberta to Quebec. To find a station near you simply visit the Canadian Renewable Fuels website at www.greenfuels.org and search retail directory for a station near you.
