Oregon Governor Signs Alternative Fuels Law

According to various media reports, Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed legislation aimed at increasing the production and use of alternative fuels in the state.

The new law, previously known as HB 2210, also requires E10 gasoline, a mixture of gasoline and 10% ethanol, after production of ethanol reaches 40 million gallons per year within the state.

The law also includes a requirement that at least a 2-percent biodiesel blend be offered as soon as production of biodiesel in the Pacific Northwest reaches 5 million gallons per year and 5-percent biodiesel when production reaches 15 million gallons per year.

These standards for fuel are needed to improve the environment and reduce the nation’s dependence on imported fuel from hostile countries.
