Next Generation Fuels Act Would Significantly Lower Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Move to Higher Ethanol Blends
What is the Next Generation Fuels Act?
The Next Generation Fuels Act is a bill that is in Congress currently. This bill would require that automakers phase in higher levels of clean, low-carbon octane by model year 2031.
>> The higher the octane, the more efficiently the engine uses energy <<
As a clean octane standard, the bill requires that sources of additional octane result in at least 40% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than unblended gasoline and sets new limits on toxic hydrocarbon aromatics. Corn ethanol is an effective, low-carbon octane source, providing the greatest fuel efficiency gains at the least cost to drivers while reducing GHG and tailpipe emissions.
• Reduce carbon emissions
• Reduce reliance on foreign oil
• Lower fuel costs for American families
• Transition new vehicles to use cleaner, more efficient fuels
