Targray has announced the opening of its Fargo Biodiesel Terminal, a 24/7 fuel distribution centre serving wholesale fuel buyers in the Fargo-Moorhead metro area.
Located in West Fargo, North Dakota, US, the new terminal will provide local fuel retailers, distributors and fleet managers access to biodiesel, a bio-based renewable fuel that produces 80% fewer CO2 emissions than petroleum diesel.
Samy Cozma, Biofuels Trader, Targray, said that the new terminal would help address the increased demand for bio-based diesel in Northwest Minnesota, US, stemming from the state’s recently amended biodiesel mandate.
On 1 May 2018, Minnesota began requiring that all diesel fuel sold in the state contain at least 20% biodiesel (B20). The minimum content for the remainder of the year is 5% (B5). The state’s move to increase the use of biodiesel, a cleaner-burning alternative to petroleum-based diesel, has received strong support from local clean air advocates, including the American Lung Association’s Upper Midwest Chapter.
