Governor Kate Brown signed an executive order on Tuesday, March 10 that will expand and intensify Oregon’s Clean Fuels Program, also known as the low carbon fuel standard. This program is designed to reduce Oregon’s greenhouse gas emissions; more specifically, it seeks to lessen the “lifecycle carbon intensity” of fuels produced by the state. New expansion of this program: Doubling Oregon’s original goal with plans to reduce the state’s carbon intensity 20% below 2015 levels by 2030 and 25% below that by 2035, makes it the strongest, most assertive goal in the country. To do this, the state will need to utilize cleaner fuels like ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel, electricity, propane, compressed natural gas, renewable natural gas, and eventually hydrogen.
