Jan 2007

The Clean Fuels Development Coalition is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of alternative fuels and technologies to improve air quality and reduce dependence on imported oil. The broad CFDC membership includes ethanol producers, agricultural interests, automobile manufacturers, state government agencies, and engineering and new technology companies.
The Ethanol Fact Book is a compilation of hundreds of technical summaries and research reports from across the scientific, academic, and technical community which offer support for the expansion of the ethanol industry through continuation and extension of the federal fuel ethanol tax incentive and the expansion of the nation’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). This research is representative of government, industry, and academic opinion on the benefits of fuel ethanol production to the nation, the environment and the public. The goal is to provide context and perspectives to consider as you sort through various claims about ethanol in the media.
The fact book covers the following aspects in ethanol development: the U.S. Fuel Ethanol Program; energy security benefits;economic benefits;environmental benefits and the road ahead.
