American Lung Association of Minnesota: Energy Department Bestows 'Clean Cities' Honors, Minnesota Leads Nation in Alternative Fuel Availability

The Twin Cities metropolitan area will be designated as a member of the U. S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities program during a 1:30 p.m. ceremony at the State Capitol rotunda on Thursday, May 31. The ceremony recognizes the efforts of the Twin Cities Clean Cities Coalition, an unlikely mix of environmentalists, educators, health professionals, farmers, auto makers, and business and government leaders who have been working together since 1995 to expand public awareness and use of alternatives to gasoline and diesel fuels.

One of the coalition's major accomplishments is the development of the nation's largest network of gas stations selling E85, a cleaner-burning blend of 85 percent renewable ethanol and 15 percent gasoline that can be used by ``flex fuel'' vehicles. There are more than 50,000 vehicles registered in Minnesota that can use E85, which is now available at nearly 60 gas stations statewide, according to Tim Gerlach, director of outdoor air programs for the American Lung Association of Minnesota and coalition coordinator. ``Many people are surprised to learn that they already own an E85 flexible fuel vehicle, and that some alternative fuels are already available in their communities at prices competitive with gasoline,'' Gerlach said.


Over 20 gas stations in central China's Henan Province will take start selling gasoline combined with ethanol, derived from grains, as part of a government initiative to unload its large cereal stockpiles. About 3 tons of cereal are needed to make 1 ton of ethanol, which is mixed with gasoline at a 1:10 ratio. China's annual gasoline consumption now stands at about 36 million tons. So far, two production projects have started operating in large cereal producers Henan and Heilongjiang provinces. Another one in northeast China's Jilin Province will be finished by the end of next year. The bases would consume hundreds of tons of cereal a year.
