Approximately one-third of Oregon's greenhouse gases come from the
transportation sector. Providing cleaner transportation fuels such as lower
carbon ethanol and biodiesel, electricity, natural gas, biogas and propane will
help shrink Oregon’s transportation-related carbon footprint. Use of cleaner
fuels can improve public health and increase energy security.
The Clean Fuels Program is a critical component of Oregon’s plan to reduce
greenhouse gases in the transportation sector such as creating cleaner cars,
using cleaner fuels and reducing the amount that Oregonians drive. In addition
to reducing greenhouse gases, the program has many co-benefits including
reductions in other air pollutants, improvements to public health and increased
