Alternative fuels and technologies:

April 13, 2012
Ethanol is a renewable fuel made from plant materials that absorb C02 while growing. Because of this, using ethanol in place of non-renewable fossil fuels, such as gasoline, reduces GHG emissions. The level of GHG emissions reduction depends on a number of factors, including the percentage of ethanol in the fuel blend.
All major vehicle manufacturers design their vehicles to run year-round on gasoline containing an ethanol blend of up to 10 percent (E10), without modification. E10 is available at many service stations across Canada.
Several vehicle manufacturers offer flexible-fuel vehicles (EFVs) that can run on ethanol blends of up to 85 percent ethanol (E85) and 15 percent gasoline. Ethanol contains less energy than gasoline, so in higher-level blends such as E85, more fuel is needed to travel the same distance.
Biodiesel is another fuel made from renewable resources (plant or animal materials). Using blends of diesel fuel with biodiesel can reduce GHG emissions compared with using unblended diesel. The level of GHG emissions reduction depends on a number of factors including the percentage of biodiesel in fuel blend. New diesel-powered vehicles are designed to operate on diesel fuel containing up to 5 percent biodiesel (B5) year-round, without modification.
Electricity is a readily available energy source that is used as a fuel in three types of vehicles: battery-electric, hybrid-electric and plug-in hybrid electric.  We will share these three types, of vehicles tomorrow.
