Minnesota Governor’s Council on Biofuels suggests E15, LCFS and more

November 3, 2020 |

In Minnesota, Governor’s Council on Biofuels has given Gov. Tim Walz its consensus report on the steps needed to grow Minnesota’s biofuels industry and get the state back on track to meet renewable energy goals.

Walz charged the 15-member council to recommend policies to accelerate achievement of Minnesota’s biofuels and greenhouse gas reduction goals. The group worked over the past nine months to find ways to achieve this that help farmers, rural communities, the natural environment, and economically disadvantaged populations.

The Council’s recommendations include accelerating the state’s move toward 15% ethanol content in gasoline; adopting a Low Carbon Fuel Standard; increasing biofuels use in the state fleet; increasing public understanding and marketing of biofuels; and developing advanced biofuels.
