Clean Fuels Program

Launched in 2016, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality's Clean Fuels Program is designed to reduce the carbon footprint associated with the transportation of Oregonians. It does this by estimating the amount of greenhouse gases created during the life cycle (i.e., the production, processing, transportation, and consumption) of fuels used in Oregon. Clean fuels have lower carbon emissions or carbon intensity compared to gasoline and diesel, which help mitigate climate change, improve air quality, and public health. The Clean Fuels Program aims to encourage the use of cleaner fuels such as electricity, ethanol, biodiesel, renewable diesel, and renewable natural gas by providing incentives and requirements to create demand for cleaner fuels in the marketplace.
