Fuel Retailer Trade Show is a Showcase for Ethanol Blends

Fuel retailers from around the state will gather in Saint Paul’s RiverCentre on April 9-11 for the 2018 Upper Midwest Convenience Store and Energy Convention. Formerly known as the Minnesota Petroleum Marketers Convention and Trade Show, this annual gathering helps people in the fuel and convenience store industry stay current with new products, better understand laws and regulations, and attend workshops and seminars.

It’s not the place where most people would expect to find the American Lung Association in Minnesota, but those in the industry know the Clean Air Choice Team has played an important role in the growth of ethanol blends like E85. For nearly 20 years, the Clean Air Choice Team and their partners and stakeholders have worked closely with both fuel retailers and the general public to increase the use of these locally made, largely renewable fuels. Today, there is a network of more than 350 stations in Minnesota that offer E85.

According to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, tailpipe emissions from vehicles account for one of the largest sources of air pollution in Minnesota. One way to help improve outdoor air quality is to reduce our tailpipe emissions, so the Clean Air Choice Team supports fuels like E85 that burn cleaner and pollute less than traditional petroleum fuels. The Upper Midwest Convenience Store and Energy Convention allows the opportunity to educate retailers on the benefits of offering ethanol blends at their stations.
