Clean Fuel Standard Debated in Illinois

March 29, 2024
Target is 20% reduction of carbon intensity by 2038.

The Illinois Senate is considering a bill that would create a clean fuel standard.

The standard would reduce the carbon intensity of transportation fuels by 20% by 2038, , according to Biodiesel. It would calculate the carbon intensity of fuels using the U.S. Department of Energy’s GREET model and would include all stages of fuel and feedstock production and distribution.

According to the report, similar programs have been established in California, Oregon, Washington, and New Mexico.
