A bill in conference committee in the Minnesota Legislature would allow the use of biofuels other than ethanol to meet the state's 10% renewable fuel standard for gasoline. The bill would also alter the standard by requiring that gasoline sold in the state have either 10% biofuel content by volume, or the maximum percent by volume allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency. Moreover, obligated parties could opt to blend approved nonconventional biofuel in gasoline to meet the 10% standard.
