The Ecosolutions Advantage
E85 fuel is certified sustainable following the European Union's renewable energy directive
In addition to being very favorable in terms of reducing CO2 emissions, SUPERETHANOL E85 has no impact on human health. This has been demonstrated by examining the MSDS of the two products: SP95-E10 gasoline and SUPERETHANOL E85.
Moreover, unlike fossil fuels (produced from petroleum), biofuels are produced from bio-sourced raw materials (mainly plants) and are therefore renewable. E85 also contributes to the circular economy. Indeed, an amount of about 10% of beer and wine residues is used for the production of bioethanol.
Finally, although ethanol has a lower energy content than fossil gasoline, it benefits from an advantageous tax system, with a price about 46% cheaper than SP95-E10 gasoline (pump price between 0.60 €/L and 0.80 €/L). Despite the extra consumption, it remains financially interesting for the consumer.
The Environmental Performance
Compared to the most sold gasoline in France, the SP95-E10 (90% fossil, 10% ethanol) and for an equivalent service: "Traveling 100 km in a light vehicle with a gasoline engine", the E85 allows :
A 45% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
These results are based on a Life Cycle Analysis of the "Well to Wheel" cycle, which takes into account emissions linked to the production of the fuel and its use. In this study, we do not deal with the emissions linked to the manufacturing of the vehicle, nor with the emissions linked to recycling. It is assumed that the type of vehicle used is the same for all fuels (fossil or renewable).
