The agriculture policy bill signed into law by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz includes incentives to expand the use of E15 and higher blends. John Christianson, who served on the Governor’s Council on Biofuels, says this law helps build infrastructure for biofuels. “In addition to that, Minnesota has a unique opportunity to allow E15 to be a base fuel for the state.” Christianson is a certified public accountant in Willmar, specializing in agriculture and renewable fuels. Christianson emphasizes Minnesota’s role as a leader in the biofuels world. “About 40 percent of the corn in Minnesota is processed through an ethanol plant to produce ethanol and high quality DDG high protein feeds.”
