The development of Minnesota’s Clean Fuel Standard is being led by the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Deputy Ag Commissioner Andrea Vaubel says a low carbon fuel standard is something that’s been explored in other states, but not in the Midwest. “If something like this fits in Minnesota, how does it make sense? We have fantastic biofuels capacity here, we’ve always been a leader in that space.” With the Clean Fuel Standard being so complex, Vaubel says feedback will be gathered from agriculture, energy, environment groups and others to establish a framework. A series of stakeholder engagement meetings will happen between now and the end of the year.
