Study shows Minnesota biodiesel use has caused reduction of 7.4 billion pounds of CO2 emissions

April 10, 2016 |

In Minnesota, a recent study from the American Lung Association in Minnesota (ALAMN) has demonstrated the use of biodiesel’s significant positive impact on air quality. The study demonstrated that the summer (B10) and winter blends (B5) used in Minnesota prevent 130 tons of particulate matter, 319 tons of hydrocarbon, and 2,634 tons of carbon monoxide emissions from entering the air each year. ALAMN also found that during the 10-year period with biodiesel as a fuel standard for Minnesota, the state has realized a reduction of more than 7.4 billion pounds, or 3.7 million tons, of carbon dioxide emissions.
