ATA board endorses use of biodiesel
Dec 1, 2005 12:00 PM
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.”
“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.”
