Illinois Soybean Growers pleased with B20 state bill

May 10, 2021 |

In Illinois, Illinois Soybean Growers Government Relations Committee Chairman, Ron Kindred, a soybean and corn farmer from Atlanta, Ill., has released the following statement in reaction to Governor Pritzker’s proposed Consumers and Climate First Act: 

“ISG is encouraged by the Governor’s actions in proposing to decarbonize fuels by using biodiesel blends, and we support the minimum biodiesel blend of 20% set for all diesel fuel sold in Illinois. This would achieve meaningful reductions in greenhouse gas emissions,” says Kindred.  “Illinois’ 43,000 soybean farmers are proud to produce Illinois grown energy that supports essential agribusiness and provides for a cleaner burning fuel that results in better environmental outcomes.”

The Consumers and Climate First Act proposes to, “Decarbonize fuels during the transition to electrification, and establishes minimum biodiesel standards (B20) for diesel fuel sold in Illinois to smooth the transition to an electrified transportation sector.”
