Eco-gasoline in the U.S. - The Ethanol world power - Economy  May 20, 2023 – 10:54 am


No country produces as much ethanol as the U.S.. Ex-President Bush had decided to quintuple the amount of biofuel. Especially the corn state of Iowa benefits from E15 at the pump.

While in Germany nor E10 is discussed in the U.S. is already a new fuel type on the market: E15. Since January this year, the Environmental Protection Agency has released the mixture with fifteen percent ethanol - for vehicles that were produced between 2001 and 2006.


By 2022, the production of biofuels in the U.S. to be fivefold compared to 2007.

The officials are responding to the increasing importance of ethanol in states like Iowa. The Midwestern state of the United States is known for its large corn fields and now produces nearly a third of the total amount of ethanol in the United States.

2010, the United States has estimated that produced 45 billion liters of it. You are making it the world's largest producer.

This is politically desirable. The so-called biofuel plan was in 2007 by the government of George W. Bush decided and proposes to increase fivefold the production of biofuels by 2022. Successor, Barack Obama will continue this project in the face of dwindling oil reserves and the continued high demand for oil.


Iowa is now entirely on biofuel. Tens of thousands of jobs depend alone in the rural three-million state of the heavily subsidized production of bio-fuel and bio-diesel.

It also makes ethanol in the United States for discussion: Is biofuel really make ecological sense? And it turns out his vehicle with the ever increasing ethanol blending a favor?

So also caused the release of E15 a few weeks ago for protests: automobile clubs and Industry called on the Environmental Protection Agency to withdraw the material, to sound scientific information where available to its compatibility.

U.S. oil production is booming

Petroleum outlook U.S. oil production is booming. Government projections show domestic oil production will grow by 1 million barrels per day by 2020, though some say those estimates are too conservative. Still, that growth combined with increased use of biofuels and more fuel-efficient cars, will significantly cut the nation’s need for oil imports
After declining to levels not seen since the 1940s, U.S. crude production began rising again in 2009. Drilling rigs have rushed into the nation's oil fields, suggesting that a surge in domestic crude is on the horizon.
