Celebrate Portland's Renewable Fuel Standard


One year ago (July 1, 2007) the Portland City Council put into effect a law requiring minimum blends of  5% biodiesel in diesel fuel and 10% ethanol in gasoline for all on-road motor vehicle fuel sold for use within theCity limits, making Portland the first City in the US to adopt a local Renewable Fuel Standard.

In the first year of implementation of the mandate, Portland has worked agressively to assure high quality biofuels for consumers. Portland's biofuel initiative has encouraged Oregon farmers to incorporate high value biofuel crops in their growing rotation, facilitated the development of efficient and innovative ethanol and biodiesel plants to serve the Portland Metro area, and reduced regional carbon dioxide emmissions.

The timely and bold commitment by the City of Portland has stimulated growth in local agriculture, benefits the environment, local economy, and local energy security.
