Minnesota RFS Now Requires 5% Biodiesel

Minnesota’s state Renewable Fuel Standard now requires that diesel fuel contain a 5% blend of biodiesel, up from its previous 2% (B2) requirement.

Blends of up to 5% biodiesel (B5) are legally categorized as diesel fuel, eliminating operational or warranty concerns.

According to analysis from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the state’s B2 Fuel Standard added an average of just 4/10 of a penny to the cost of a gallon of diesel during the last three years.

Minnesota was the first among what is now a roster of states that have introduced biodiesel requirements, including Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, New Mexico and Massachusetts.



Baby steps. But good ones.

Thanks for post! The American Lung Association in Minnesota (ALAMN) is a strong supporter of this move. This action reduces 139 tons of particlate pollution every year. It's roughly the same as removing 55,000 vehicles from the road.

Next step: B10!
