Washington State Takes Next Step on Clean Fuels Standard

By Simon Mui, the Energy Collective.

Washington's Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) took another step recently by releasing a discussion document about a state Clean Fuels Standard (CFS) for public input and comments.

The documents released show that the oil industry and petroleum-based transportation fuels are the largest source of carbon pollution in the state - over 40% - but that a wide range of alternative fuel sources could significantly reduce that pollution while attracting additional clean fuel investments and companies to the state.
