The Clean Fuels Policy for the Midwest white paper is the result of nearly two years of analysis and stakeholder discussion by the Midwestern Clean Fuels Initiative facilitated by GPI. The Initiative’s consensus white paper illustrates broad support for a policy by diverse interests across the region. The paper is intended to inform further discussion of new and existing clean fuels policies and how they could be tailored to benefit the Midwest.

In order to ensure a successful and fair Clean Fuels Policy, the Initiative makes several recommendations. A well-designed Clean Fuels Policy must:

  • Be a market-based approach and remain fuel and technology neutral
  • Rely on a portfolio of clean fuels
  • Ensure consistent lifecycle assessment for all fuel types based on the latest Argonne GREET model
  • Consider the benefits of higher ethanol blends
  • Build on existing state policies rather than replace those policies
  • Reinforce and complement existing efforts by the agricultural sector to adopt practices that improve soil health and water quality and capture carbon
