Oregon considers RFS

By | April 23, 2007
Oregon legislators were close to approving a statewide renewable fuels standard (RFS) at press time. The Oregon House of Representatives approved the bill, and all indications looked good for passage in the Oregon State Senate, said Jeremy Graybill, communications director for the Oregon Environmental Council. The RFS requires E10 when in-state ethanol production reaches 90 MMgy for three months. B2 will be required when in-state production maintains a 5 MMgy production capacity for three months, and then it would increase to B5 at 15 MMgy.
