EARTH FIRST scores a touchdown at Super Bowl 51
EARTH FIRST’s construction department can handle any request, and to prove it, we built a scientific display to help Shell Oil promote their Biofuel capabilities.
Biofuels are renewable fuels that can be blended into petrol and diesel. They are a valuable part of the energy mix as a lower-cost way to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the transport sector, provided that their production is managed in a responsible way.
Shell produces one of the lowest-CO2 biofuels available today by making ethanol from sugar cane. This biofuel can reduce CO2 emissions by around 70% compared with petrol. The production process is designed to minimize its environmental footprint. By-products are recycled as natural fertilizers, and waste sugar cane fibers are used as fuel to generate electricity for the mills. The mills reduce water consumption by using rainfall to water the crops and by recycling water during production.
You can see the EARTH FIRST constructed display all week at Discovery Green in Houston, Texas at the “Super Bowl Live” tent.
