Minnesota B20 biodiesel standard to take effect in 2018
Green Car Congress
AUGUST 5, 2017
The state of Minnesota will implement a new biodiesel standard next spring, as Minnesota moves to a 20% biodiesel blend (B20) at pumps across the state. This new standard builds on Minnesota’s national leadership—in 2005, Minnesota became the first state in the nation to require all diesel fuel to have a blend of at least 2% biodiesel (B2). A large portion of Minnesota’s biodiesel is made from homegrown soybeans, which are one of the state’s leading cash crops.
