Wisconsin Barron County Explores Biodiesel Use

October 20, 2006

BARRON, Wis. --- Barron County Board member Nicole Greschner is promoting a plan to require that regular diesel in the state be mixed with a minimum of 2 percent biodiesel. Several states including Minnesota already have such a mandate. Greschner expressed her support for such a plan during a meeting, held Oct. 11, at the Barron County Courthouse to discuss alternative fuels. Several local and state officials attended, according to a news report from the Barron News-Shield. Greschner also advocated increased spending to educate the public about the benefits of biodiesel. During the same meeting, Don Horstman, another county board member, described a recent trip to San Diego where he learned about the city's bus fleet powered by biodiesel. State Secretary of Agriculture Rod Nilsestuen told the group that investment in bio-development, biodiesel and ethanol represents "the next big chapter in U.S. economic history." Alternative fuels will help the U.S. remain competitive in the global economy, he added.
