As Minnesota gets ready to become the first state in the nation to require a 10 percent blend of biodiesel, B10, the folks at the American Lung Association in Minnesota wants everyone to be properly prepared. That’s why they set up a series of free workshops, B Ready For B10.
What does this mean for you? To help diesel retailers, fleets, farmers, and others better understand the state requirements for diesel and biodiesel fuel and provide strategies for successful storage and use of biodiesel blends, the American Lung Association in Minnesota is hosting a series of workshops featuring Hoon Ge of MEG Corp.
