Targray Opens Minnesota Biodiesel Distribution Center in Minneapolis – Saint Paul

Submitted by on June 7, 2018 – 4:12 pmNo Comment

(Targray/Sys-con Media/PR Newswire)  Biodiesel supplier’s new terminal will address growth in demand stemming from state’s B20 mandate  —   Targray, a leading North American supplier of Biodiesel, has announced the opening of its Minnesota Biodiesel distribution center, serving the MinneapolisSaint Paul metropolitan area. Strategically located in the heart of Saint Paul, the new biodiesel terminal will help address the rapid growth in regional demand for biodiesel in the Twin Cities area, stemming from recent updates to Minnesota’sBiofuels mandate.

“Targray’s Minnesota terminal will provide B20-ready turnkey biodiesel solutions for a range of customers in the MinneapolisSaint Paul area.” explained Targray Vice President, Dan Murray. “Diesel distributors, truck stops, c-stores, travel centers, and fleets in the region will now be able access our high-quality Biodiesel 24/7 from a convenient central location.”

Helping Blenders Meet the Requirements of Minnesota’s B20 Mandate

As of May 1st, 2018Minnesota requires that all diesel fuel sold in the state from April to September inclusively contain at least twenty percent Biodiesel (B20). The minimum content for the remainder of the year is five percent (B5).

On May 21st 2018, the Minnesota Commerce Department announced a temporary suspension of the B20 requirement through June 30th, citing an insufficient supply of biodiesel in the state. Diesel sold during the temporary suspension must meet the biodiesel minimum content requirement of ten percent (B10) that was in effect prior to May 1st, 2018.

Targray’s Minnesota Biodiesel Terminal helps alleviate recent supply issues while also addressing long-standing concerns over the regional fuel blending infrastructure’s ability to support a B20 mandate. It provides immediate relief to state blenders, which* have struggled to secure adequate supplies of biodiesel fuel in recent months.

Minnesota’s move to increase the use of biodiesel, which burns cleaner than petroleum diesel while emitting fewer airborne particulates, has received strong support from the American Lung Association’s Upper Midwest chapter and other clean air advocacy groups.
