The American Coalition for Ethanol 2021 Grassroots Award was presented last week to The Hormel Institute for research into whether gasoline containing ethanol (such as E10, E15, and E85) results in lower emissions of toxic chemicals known to cause cancer.

The study was a collaboration between The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota and the Energy Resources Center, University of Illinois Chicago, and was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (2021) by Dr. Steffen Mueller of the Energy Resources Center and Dr. Shujun Liu and Gail Dennison of The Hormel Institute.

The institute was also recognized for contributions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, including their collaboration with ACE member Absolute Energy to provide hand sanitizer to the Mayo Clinic.
