ALLSAFE urges moderation

By | August 27, 2007
The Alliance of a Safe Alternative Fuels Environment (ALLSAFE), which was formed in June, is a coalition of consumer groups and manufacturing associations whose intent is "to ensure the safe and successful introduction of bio-based fuels." A technical report authored by Ron Sahu and released by ALLSAFE said that mid-level ethanol blends can cause increases in combustion temperature, and corrosion of control systems not specifically designed for ethanol. In an official release, ALLSAFE said it wants to see the renewable fuel introduced into the nation's supply without damaging existing products and being rejected by consumers.
