Another issue being faced globally is the dangers of alternate resources such as ethanol and cellulosic ethanol. according to environmental360.com, "This year, more than a third of the U.S.’s record corn harvest of 335 million metric tons will be used to produce corn ethanol. What’s more, within five years fully 50 percent of the U.S. corn crop is expected to wind up as biofuels". This is not only effecting The U.S though, it also affects other countries because it effects food prices in other countries, because less corn means higher prices on corn.
A solution: E85, a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline
Pros: less air pollution and reduces use of imported petroleum.
cons: gives fewer miles per gallon
and it is expensive to produce
one major global organization looking for alternative fuel sources is VCF . some technologies put toward alternative fuels are some new technologies are alternative fuel vehicles.
