One of the greatest challenges facing the energy industry today is the transportation fuels sector. Energy security, environmental constraints, and a lack of viable and sustainable solutions offer unique obstacles and exciting opportunities. At the forefront of renewably sourced fuel alternatives are two solutions from DuPont: biobutanol and cellulosic ethanol.
These new alternatives to petroleum-based fuels will be renewable, locally sourced, cost-effective, and viable across all geographies with a greatly reduced environmental footprint. Biobutanol and cellulosic ethanol will provide improved options for expanding energy supplies and accelerate the move to renewable transportation fuels, which will help to lower overall greenhouse gas emissions.
