South Carolina regional transit brings in B5 for buses and looks at B20 trials

August 6, 2019 |

In South Carolina, The Comet, Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority (CMRTA) serving the Columbia metropolitan area, now uses a B5 biodiesel blend in 39 large transit buses as part of an initiative to help improve air quality in Richland and Lexington Counties, and reduce its carbon footprint. The Comet is studying ways to try B20 biodiesel, which would increase the ratio of biodiesel to 20 percent based on the successful incorporation of B5 biodiesel into the fleet.

The biodiesel fuel is coming from Petroleum Traders Corporation and James River Solutions based on vendors from the South Carolina State contract.
