Clean Fuels Welcomes New Mexico Clean Transportation Fuel Standard

Clean Fuels Alliance America applauds New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for signing legislation to create a clean transportation fuel standard for the state of New Mexico. The new law will help drive demand and open a new market for biodiesel and renewable diesel, while spurring economic opportunity and creating cleaner air for New Mexicans.

The New Mexico Clean Transportation Fuel Standard tasks the Environmental Improvement Board with developing regulations to reduce transportation emissions by 20 percent from 2018 levels by 2030 and 30 percent by 2040. This technology and fuel-neutral program will generate new opportunities for the renewable fuel industry to help meet these carbon emissions reduction targets.

Clean Fuels Director of State Regulatory Affairs Cory-Ann Wind says, “Cleaner fuels like biodiesel and renewable diesel will play a significant role in helping New Mexico reach its climate and air pollution goals.” New Mexico becomes the fourth state to pass a clean fuel standard, alongside California, Oregon and Washington.
