The long-awaited Next Generation Fuels act was introduced to the US House Thursday by Congresswoman Cheri Bustos of Illinois, reports Brownfield Ag News.

The bill establishes a minimum octane standard for gasoline and requires sources of the added octane value to reduce carbon emissions by at least 30% compared to baseline gasoline.

Many ag and environmental groups support the bill as a roadmap to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect human health and increase engine efficiency while also encouraging the use of biofuels and lower prices at the pump.

Renewable Fuels Association President Geoff Cooper calls the bill “landmark legislation” that begins an exciting new era for transportation fuels policy, adding that RFA looks forward to making the “bold vision” a reality.
