Title: Somerset Biofuel Project Promotes Ethanol in UK
The Somerset Biofuel Project is a flagship project spearheading the use of E85 (ethanol 85%) in the UK. The project partnership, consisting of Somerset County Council (SCC), Avon & Somerset Constabulary, Wessex Water, Green Spirit Fuels, and Ford Motor Company, provides a network of high-blend (E85) bio-ethanol fuel pumps, demonstrates and promotes the use of flexi-fuel bio-ethanol vehicles, and supports the installation of a 100,000 ton bio-ethanol plant by Green Spirit Fuels, Somerset. Wide-scale promotion of the use of bio-ethanol through local, national and international media coverage is an additional aim of the project.
