NYC fleet expanding use of renewable diesel fuel following success six-month trial

November 19, 2018 |

In New York state, the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) announced that it will expand use of renewable diesel fuel. The fuel reduces CO2 emissions by 65% compared to the petroleum-based version. This move is part of the City’s efforts to phase out its use of regular diesel.

The City plans to bid a long-term contract to purchase renewable diesel following a successful six-month demonstration period in which the City tested nearly one million gallons of renewable diesel in City fleet vehicles.

Each year, City fleet units use up to 17 million gallons of diesel that could be displaced through this initiative.
