Cars that run on an 85 percent ethanol blend, E85, pollute the air less than fossil fuel vehicles. According to the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute, E85 reduces nitrogen and carbon monoxide emissions.

This is then given off into the air as nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide has twice the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide. This means it can offset other environmental benefits of using biofuels. “Researchers also said 38 How Do Biofuels Affect the Environment?
