Minnesota ethanol train derailment does not pose great threat to the environment

An update on the derailment of a train carrying ethanol in Minnesota - the state’s biofuels association says it will have far fewer environmental consequences than the East Palestine, Ohio derailment. This comes as welcome news for the rural town of Raymond, Minnesota.

The Director of the Minnesota Biofuels Association tells Brownfield Ag News that residents must be careful as the ethanol is flammable, but there are no health concerns.
