NREL Maps Progress of Ethanol in U.S.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has developed an online interactive map that details the locations of ethanol stations and biorefineries across the United States.
Using data provided in part by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), this new tool plots the location every E85 station and ethanol biorefinery as well as under construction facilities. The map also includes locations for propane, hydrogen, and other alternative fueling facilities across the country.
"This exciting new tool will help policy makers and consumers alike gain a better appreciation of not only where to buy ethanol, but just how important the industry has become across the country," said Renewable Fuels Association's Director of Market Development Robert White. "The map clearly shows that ethanol is expanding beyond the traditional markets of the Midwest."
