Minnesota Schedules Workshops as State Prepares to Implement B20

Submitted by on February 7, 2018 – 7:35 pmNo Comment

by Ron Kotrba (Biodiesel Magazine)  As Minnesota prepares to implement its 20 percent biodiesel (B20) requirement in diesel fuel May 1, a series of workshops will be held across the state beginning Feb. 12 in Saint Paul. The “Be Ready for B20 Workshop Series” is designed for diesel retailers, distributors, fleets, farmers and others with the goal of sharing information on the benefits of biodiesel, and how the new requirement will impact fuel providers and end-users.

Minnesota implemented its B10 mandate in 2014 with no major issues reported.

“Before we rolled out B10, we made sure to do a series of workshops around the state so that fuel suppliers, mechanics and diesel users could be ready for the change,” said Mike Youngerberg, senior director of product development and commercialization with Minnesota Soybean and executive director of the Minnesota Biodiesel Council. “The program obviously worked, so we’re ready to do it again.” 

The workshops will feature speakers from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the Minnesota Department of Commerce Weights & Measures Division, and fuel consulting firm MEG Corp. Topics will include a history and overview of Minnesota’s law and compliance, diesel and biodiesel basics, storage handling and use best practices, spring and fall blending as the mandate moves from B5 to B20 in the warm weather months and back down to B5 again for wintertime, and identifying, treating and preventing common diesel issues.  READ MORE
