UPS adds biodiesel blending at major Kentucky hub

May 30, 2011 |

In Kentucky, United Parcel Service began using biodiesel blends at its Worldport facility this month. The 30,000 gallon fuel tank and fueling station will allow fueling operators to blend specified percentages of biodiesel “on the fly,” starting with 5 percent biodiesel (B5), and working up to 20 percent biodiesel (B20).

“There is a finite amount of petroleum-based fuel available from our planet so it is important that UPS and other companies invest in ways to use alternative fuels and technologies, including biodiesel,” said Scott Wicker, UPS Chief Sustainability officer. “This project helps us reduce our dependence on fossil fuels with the added benefit that it will also reduce air pollution and carbon emissions.”
