E10 introduction in Great Britain: bioethanol industry launches new website for motorists with information about E10

This week, the Federal Association of the German Bioethanol Industry Association (Bundesverband der deutschen Bioethanolwirtschaft - BDBe) launched a new version of the www.refuele10.com website. The website, which has been online since 2018, has been completely revised and updated. Users can now expect:

  •  an updated database on E10 engine compatibility for all passenger car models
  • a fresh layout
  • FAQ containing all the important facts about E10
  • additional information about the climate compatibility of E10

With just a few clicks, motorists can find out whether they can refuel with E10 or not. The website www.refuele10.com is optimized for desktop and mobile devises. This means that reliable information can be retrieved quickly and easily, even if the question of E10 compatibility only arises at the petrol pump.

Nearly every passenger car with a petrol engine can refuel with E10 with no restrictions, especially vehicles built in 2005 or later. Engine compatibility of new cars built since 2019 can be easily checked by looking under the fuel filler flap; for older passenger cars, this information can be found in the release declarations of the manufacturers and importers.

E10: sustainable and climate-friendly

Since the European market launch of E10 more than ten years ago, strict, government-controlled sustainability regulations have applied to bioethanol blended with petrol. This also ensures in the United Kingdom that the raw materials used for bioethanol production, such as sugar beet, feed grain or agricultural and forestry residues, do not come from areas that are particularly worthy of protection and that the bioethanol used contributes significantly to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in transport.

The CO2 savings achieved by bioethanol have almost doubled in the last ten years. This makes the “green petrol” E10 an effective and cost-efficient measure for more climate change mitigation in road transport. The carbon footprint of E10 includes all greenhouse gas
emissions that occur during production, from the cultivation of the raw materials to their transport and further processing to the petrol station.

You can find information about E10 at www.refuele10.com

The German Bioethanol Industry Association (BDBe) represents the interests of the biofuel sector's member companies and associations, spanning agricultural production of the raw materials all the way to industrial production and processing of bioethanol and all by-products. Co-products include DDGS, CDS, biogenic carbonic acid, gluten, yeast, biomethane and organic fertilisers. For fuel uses, beverages and food or the chemical industry, bioethanol with different classifications is produced from feed grain, sugar beet or biogenic waste and residues. In Germany, the types of petrol currently available at petrol stations contain between 5% and 10% certified sustainable bioethanol.
