100% Renewablaze racing fuel offsets CO2 emissions
ETS Racing Fuels Renewablaze GTA R100 is produced from a number of different sources of sustainable biomass and consists of 100% plant-based raw materials. The feedstock is derived from cellulosic material that is converted into hydrocarbons and oxygenates. It contributes significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by reducing CO2 emissions through the CO2 absorption of the growing plant and from avoiding the release of CO2 held within more conventional fossil feedstocks.
