Biodiesel mandate for Minnesota delayed again
Well, the state of Minnesota, which had initially required all diesel be replaced with biodiesel, only to temporarily suspend the law last month, has extended the suspension until February so suppliers can fully verify their fuel is within specifications. Note that the soybean growers and biodiesel advocates such as the Minnesota Biodiesel Council have supported the suspension.
"We want Minnesota truckers, petroleum distributors and other residents to know that we take biodiesel fuel quality extremely seriously," said Joe Jobe, CEO of the National Biodiesel Board. "We are taking an aggressive stance to ensure that the biodiesel produced and used in the state meets the national specification for the fuel and is trouble-free.”
