Nebraska E30 Demonstration Study Released

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts and the Nebraska Ethanol Board released the details of a new study on higher ethanol blends on Monday.

The E30 Demonstration was conducted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Engineering Department. The yearlong demonstration involved 50 non-flex fuel vehicles (non-FFVs) from the State of Nebraska to determine adaptability, economic feasibility, and environmental impact of using E30. Twenty-six vehicles were fueled by E15, and 24 were fueled by E30.

Gov. Ricketts discussed the project during his Monday morning press briefing and introduced Nebraska Ethanol Board Executive Director Roger Berry and UNL research lead Rajib Saha.
