Ethanol blend fuels pollute environment via emission acetaldehyde [Registered]

Researchers from the University of Leeds and the University of York have shown that ethanol blended fuels could have environmental drawbacks. The team sampled London’s air during 2012 and found significantly higher levels of atmospheric ethanol, and its related oxidation product acetaldehyde, than those predicted by the NAEI, the UK’s national emissions estimate. In fact, current models underestimated acetaldehyde levels by up to a factor of 40.…
