Illinois governor signs higher biodiesel blending bill into law

April 21, 2022 |

In Illinois, Governor J.B. Pritzker signed into law a bill that incentivizes increasing blends of biodiesel. The bill, championed by Senator Patrick Joyce and Representative Eva Dina Delgado, extends the current B10 sales tax exemption until 2023 and then increases the biodiesel blend level subject to the tax exemption to B13 in 2024, B15 in 2025 and B19 in 2026. This major initiative establishes Illinois’ commitment to reducing carbon emissions and incentivizing the use of domestically produced, renewable fuel.

The legislation was spearheaded and guided through the legislative process by the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) with support from Clean Fuels Alliance America and several of its member companies, including REG and ADM.
