New York City mayor signs heating oil biodiesel blending bill into law

October 20, 2016 |

In New York state, the mayor of New York City has signed into law the bill that requires increasingly higher blends of biodiesel in heating oil over the next 18 years. Despite some environmental groups opposing the plan, the bill passed 47-3 in a city council vote. The blend would go to B5 next October, rising to 10% in 2025 and reaching 20% in 2034. The National Biodiesel Board says going to B5 will save emissions equivalent to removing 45,000 cars from the road while 20% will equate to more than a million cars.
