Minnesota Mandates B20 Biodiesel

Minnesota hopes to boost the level of biodiesel sold there from 2% today to 20% by 2015. Governor Tim Pawlenty will bring this “B2 to B20” plan to the legislature during the regular 2008 legislative session.

“Minnesota has led the nation in unleashing a renewable energy revolution,” Governor Pawlenty said. “It's time for us to continue to blaze the trail to a cleaner, more secure energy future.” Minnesota originally mandated 2% biodiesel in 2005.
