Oregon Clean Fuels Program

Approximately one-third of Oregon's greenhouse gases come from the transportation sector. Providing cleaner transportation fuels such as lower carbon ethanol and biodiesel, electricity, natural gas, biogas and propane will help shrink Oregon’s transportation-related carbon footprint. Use of cleaner fuels can improve public health and increase energy security.

The Clean Fuels Program is a critical component of Oregon’s plan to reduce greenhouse gases in the transportation sector such as creating cleaner cars, using cleaner fuels and reducing the amount that Oregonians drive. In addition to reducing greenhouse gases, the program has many co-benefits including reductions in other air pollutants, improvements to public health and increased energy security.

The 2009 Oregon Legislature passed HB 2186 authorizing the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission to adopt rules to reduce the average carbon intensity of Oregon’s transportation fuels by 10 percent over a 10-year period. The 2015 Oregon Legislature passed SB 324 allowing DEQ to fully implement the Clean Fuels Program in 2016. The rules for the program are adopted in Oregon Administrative Rules Chapter 340 Division 253 – as filed with the Secretary of State.
