New York City, a longtime user of biodiesel, has enacted legislation mandating its, use, setting a phased schedule for use of B5 and then B20, with the possibility of making the requirement effective year-round.

Demanding service: on the job in New York City .. garbage trucks there have to be able to push a snowplow too. Someday they may do so using B20 biodiesel fuel.

“The largest municipal fleet in the country,” says the National Biodiesel Board, has “made a bold environmental statement.”

The new law B5 next year and B20 by 2016 during the warm weather months. Year-round B20 will be investigated.

“A move to B20 would add up to 2 million gallons of biodiesel use annually,” NBB says.
