Biofuel and Renewable Fuel Quality Program

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (Department) must establish and administer programs to audit motor fuel facilities, including biofuel processing and production plants, to screen and test motor fuel, including renewable fuel, and to inspect motor fuel sold by dealers, including retail motor fuel dealers. Biofuels include ethanol, biobutanol, and biodiesel. Renewable fuel is defined as a combustible liquid derived from biomass or produced from a biogas source, such as biofuel and biofuel blended with gasoline. The Iowa Central Community College must test motor fuels, biofuels, and renewable fuels to ensure they meet Departmental standards for motor vehicle use.
