Biodiesel is a clean-burning liquid fuel developed from renewable energy sources like vegetable oils and animal fats, which can be used to power vehicles in place diesel. Since biodiesel is produced in the United States, it is a fuel option that reduces our dependence on foreign oil. See the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) explanation of biodiesel.
Pure biodiesel, referred to as B100, contains no petroleum. Other types of biodiesel are blended, such as B20, which is composed of 20% biodiesel blended with 80% petroleum diesel. B20 meets the Federal Energy Policy Act (EPAct) requirements. Many fleets across New England have been using B20 successfully, including the Cape Cod Transit authority, Harvard University, City of Newton, and Otis Air Force base.
The National Biodiesel Board's website provides comprehensive information on biodiesel, including:
Currently, there is one approved vendor on Comm-Pass (the state's procurement website) that can provide blended B20 biodiesel. To schedule your delivery (includes service for state departments in zones 1-8), contact:
Joe Cote, contract manager for Dennis K. Burke Inc., at 617-884-7800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You do not need to make any changes to equipment or vehicle(s) for which you plan to use B20. Although some think you should clean your tank prior to the fuel delivery, we are not aware of anyone who has experienced problems from not cleaning them beforehand.
