Minnesota, Sweden Sign Bioenergy Pact

by

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (KDAL) - Hoping to emulate Sweden's bioenergy savvy, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton on Friday signed a pact to continue working on bioenergy research, technology and public policy with the country. Dayton and a Swedish government official signed the document in Stockholm while the governor was in town on a trade mission. Sweden generates 32 percent of its energy from biofuels, and Minnesota has been working with the country for several years in an effort to learn how. The 10-day trade mission will take Dayton and 35 Minnesotans to Sweden, Norway and Germany to promote Minnesota exports and encourage foreign direct investment into the state.
