ACFC Breaks Ground on E85 Stations
The Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition (ACFC), a partner with the Alabama Partners for Clean Air, broke ground on two new E-85 ethanol fuel stations for the city of Birmingham in mid-August. Ethanol is fuel produced from corn and will be used for the city's flex fuel vehicles.
"This gives us the flexibility to choose on a weekly basis which fuel is least expensive, whether it is E-85 or unleaded fuel," Bob Rainey with Birmingham's Fleet Management said.
A grant from the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition is paying for 80 percent of the project and the stations are expected to be completed in mid-December. Find out more about the ACFC on the Alabama Partners for Clean Air website.
