Oregon Clean Fuels Program

Oregon Clean Fuels Program

Approximately one-third of Oregon's greenhouse gases come from transportation sources. Providing cleaner fuels will help reduce these emissions and create a more efficient transportation system. Oregon's 10 Year Energy Action Plan, Transportation Planning Strategy, and the Global Warming Commission's Roadmap to 2020 all cite lower carbon transportation fuels as being a critical piece of Oregon's environmental and economic future.

Administrative Rules for Oregon’s Fuels Industry

Oregon’s Environmental Quality Commission adopted rules for the first phase of the Oregon Clean Fuels program in December 2012 and recently amended them in December 2013. Oregon fuel producers and importers must register, keep records and report to DEQ information about the transportation fuels they currently provide in Oregon.

On Feb. 13, 2014, Governor Kitzhaber directed DEQ to move forward with full implementation of the Clean Fuels Program. DEQ will collaborate with a broad range of stakeholders to design a program that suits the needs and interests of Oregonians. Considering input from the public and results of additional analyses, DEQ will draft proposed rules for the Environmental Quality Commission to consider for adoption.
