Are you ready for the 20% biodiesel mandate? Starting on May 1st 2018, all diesel sold in Minnesota will contain at least 20% biodiesel.
Updating the biodiesel mandate is nothing new to Minnesota. In 2014 Minnesota required that 10% biodiesel be blended with #2 diesel fuel from April 1st to September 30th each year. While throughout the colder weather months of October through March diesel fuel can be blended lower with 5% biodiesel.
Once the 20% biodiesel mandate is implemented on May 1st, the Minnesota B20 mandate will be in effect April through September just like B10. From October through March, the mandate will again revert back to B5 as it did with B10.
If you want to learn more about the changes of biodiesel in the state of Minnesota we will be bringing in an industry expert for a detailed explanation of the affects this mandate will have on your fuel. Not only that, but you will find out more of what River Country Cooperative is doing to get ahead of these new fuel challenges in our industry.
