Reynolds makes B20 declaration

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has signed an executive order declaring all new diesel vehicles purchased for state fleets will be from manufacturers that explicitly approve of B20 use.

Iowa Renewable Fuels Association president Derek Winkel praised the declaration, saying it sends a strong market signal to diesel engine manufacturers.  He also says increasing biodiesel usage helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and boosts the rural economy.

Iowa is the number one biodiesel producing state at 365 million gallons in 2018.

The state has 11 plants with capacity to produce 400 million gallons annually.
