    A large amount of emissions from area industry and transportation causes severe air pollution problems in the Houston metro area in Texas. Bioethanol has been added in gasoline for many years in the US and the aim is to not only reduce the consumption of the fossil fuels, but also to improve air quality. Life cycle assessment is carried out to evaluate energy and water use, and emissions from transportation vehicles fueled with gasoline and blended fractions of bioethanol in Houston metro area. The emissions examined include greenhouse gases (GHG), VOC, SOx, CO, NOx and PM2.5 and PM10. Some blends of gasoline and bioethanol derived from corn, such as E0, E10, E20, high octane fuel (HOF) E25, HOF E40, E50, E85 and E100 were investigated to study the effects of the blends on the criteria emissions. The emissions were analyzed for three pathways, well-to-pump, pump-to-vehicle and wellto-.. View More»
