Biodiesel B20 – the legislative road
Cleaning Minnesota’s air with biodiesel
Besides being an alternative fuel to petroleum diesel, biodiesel offers a number of health benefits. The U.S. EPA recognizes biodiesel as the only advanced biofuel for its ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50 percent. In Minnesota, using B20 in the summer and B5 in the winter has an effect equal to removing the emissions from nearly 230,000 vehicles from the roads each year.
Equivalent vehicles removed annually using biodiesel blends in Minnesota is like removing vehicles from our roads.
