ATA board endorses use of biodiesel

The American Trucking Associations (ATA) board of directors has unanimously endorsed an energy resolution that includes promoting low blends of biodiesel.

This resolution looks to increase the diesel fuel supply; improve the balance between environmental concerns and fuel efficiency; eliminate boutique diesel fuels; and promote biodiesel use of up to 5%. The resolution says “biodiesel may be an effective means to extend the supply of diesel fuel.”

“ATA is proud to endorse the use of biodiesel in blends of up to 5%,” said Rich Moskowitz, ATA regulatory affairs counsel. “It fits in with our mission of ensuring an adequate diesel fuel supply — something important to the trucking industry. Promoting B5 is a step in the right direction.”
