Imagining a future fueled by biodiesel

Categories: biodiesel

Disneyland Resort’s making biodiesel dreams come true. The parks’ 56-year-old steam-powered trains began running on biodiesel to meet California’s environmental regulations in 2007.

“The resort began to transition the trains to biodiesel, using B98. Now, most of the biodiesel used is made from recycled cooking oil from its own kitchens, and accounts for nearly 75 percent of the parks diesel consumption,” according to Biodiesel Magazine.

The National Biodiesel Board honored Disneyland and others today at the annual “Eye on Biodiesel” awards presentation at the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo in Phoenix.

Find Alternative Fuel On the Go

Finding fuel for your alternative fuel vehicle while on the go just got much simpler.  The U.S. Department of Energy has created a new mobile app with easy-to-use Google technology that allows users to find the five closest locations for filling up with alternative fuels such as biodiesel, electricity, E85 (etha­nol), hydrogen, natural gas and propane.  The app provides users with driving directions, business hours and contact information.

Until more alternative fuel stations are built, allowing these important industries to flourish, this app will serve as a great resource for consumers who are dedicated to using these fuels to ensure our nation’s energy security and economic growth.
