Ever wondered where all the E85 pumps are located across the country? Or how close those pumps are to the biorefineries that produce the ethanol?
Go to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to view an interactive map that answers those questions. http://rpm.nrel.gov/transatlas/launch
Using data provided in part by the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA), this new map plots the location every E85 station and ethanol biorefinery across the country (as well as under construction facilities). NREL’s map also includes locations for propane, hydrogen, and other alternative fueling facilities across the country.
This map clearly shows that ethanol is expanding beyond the traditional markets of the Midwest.
