ST. PAUL – Applications are now open for all 15 seats on the Governor’s Biofuels Council.
The council, established on Sept. 16 by Gov. Tim Walz, will advise him and state officials on how to best foster growth of the Minnesota biofuels industry.
“The Governor’s Biofuels Council demonstrates our commitment to supporting the agriculture and biofuels industries and seizing the opportunity to move Minnesota toward a cleaner, greener transportation sector,” Walz said.
The council will be made up of 15 people, including representatives of agriculture, biofuel and transportation industries, as well as environmental and conservation groups.
They will create a report advising state officials on ways to expand the use of biofuels, increase the carbon efficiency of biofuels, and implement biofuels as part of Minnesota’s larger goal to reduce greenhouse gas production in the transportation sector.
The report is to be completed by November 2020.
