< Biodiesel Success

Chicago Park District

"We made the move to clean-burning biodiesel fuel in 2011. It has been paying off from the start, helping us to reduce vehicle emissions and save fuel, as well as save thousands of dollars annually on the cost of fuel." - Michael Dimitroff, Department of Cultural & Natural Resources

"Biodiesel is a low hanging fruit when it comes to reducing carbon emissions. It works in any diesel engine without modifications, is readily available and the cost is comparable to petroleum diesel. I encourage others to look at the Park District program for inspiration to run higher blends of biodiesel in their fleet." - Pete Probst, Director of Research and Development, Indigenous Energy
