Greater London Authority commissions study on B30 for buses

October 8, 2013 |

In the UK, the Greater London Authority commissioned a report from LRS Consultancy looking at opportunities to reduce the emissions and carbon footprint of the bus fleet in London by using up to B30 biodiesel instead of fossil diesel. Additional sustainability benefits would be achieved by using biodiesel made from used cooking oil (UCO) and fats, oils and greases (FOGs) instead of virgin oils. A further aspiration would be to utilize the feedstock from within London to produce this biodiesel, and ultimately to manufacture and blend the fuel in the Capital. This closed loop, or circular economy application, would not only provide significant environmental benefits to London but also stimulate economic growth and employment opportunities.
