Methanol, a Potentially Renewable Energy Resource
Potential impact on human health and the environment
The principal advantages of M85 use to health and the environment are as follows:
- Because methanol is water soluble, it could be quickly diluted in large bodies of water to levels that are safe for organisms.
- One of the principal benefits of using M85 is a reduction in the amount of pollutants emitted into the air we breathe. M85, for example, has 50% fewer toxic air pollutants than gasoline.
