Regional Biofuels Corridor

Archived: 08/31/2012

Nebraska joined Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin in adopting a cooperative initiative under the Energy Security and Climate Stewardship Platform Plan (Platform). The Platform establishes a regional biofuels corridor program and directs state transportation, agriculture, and regulatory officials to develop a system of coordinated signage across the Midwest for biofuels and advanced transportation fuels and to collaborate to create regional E85 corridors. The program requires standardized fuel product coding at fueling stations as well as increased education for retailers about converting existing fueling infrastructure to dispense E85.
