When added to petrol, fuel ethers can significantly reduce the emissions of harmful exhaust pollutants, helping to improve air quality in our towns and cities.
Fuel ethers significantly reduce evaporative emissions when compared with other oxygenated alternatives. In addition, they contribute to reducing CO2 emissions from transport.
To do this responsibly, the global fuel ethers industry is continuously investing and innovating to deliver higher-performing, more sustainable fuel components.
Recent years have seen the development of new production pathways, enabling the use of renewable feedstock and the production of 100% renewable bio-ethers. These are based on bio-alcohols and bio-olefins, which are viable and sustainable solutions for both land transport and aviation.
The fuel ethers industry is committed to constantly improving the way we produce, transport and store fuel ethers, creating an ever more sustainable product.
