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 as part of the organization's efforts to help shape a strong national energy plan.

This resolution, sanctioned by the board members at ATA's annual Management Conference and Exhibition in Boston MA, 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.”
