Swedzinski urges attendance at biodiesel workshop

Thursday, February 22, 2018


ST. PAUL – State Rep. Chris Swedzinski, R-Ghent, is urging area residents to attend a "Be Ready for B20" workshop sponsored by the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council March 6 in Marshall.

The workshop is one of a dozen to be conducted throughout the state. The stated goal is to help the industry prepare for the step up to the requirement for 20-percent biodiesel content on May 1 and “understand the benefits of the fuel and how it will impact fuel providers and end users.”

“This is a good opportunity for local citizens to voice their opinions on this issue,” Swedinski said. “Industry leaders and representatives from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and the Department of Commerce Weights & Measures Division will be there, so here’s your chance to let them know what you think.”

The workshop will be 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. March 6 at AmericInn Lodge & Suites, 1406 E. Lyon St., Marshall. Additional information regarding these workshops is available at
