Cherry Hill Township is going to fuel its municipal services vehicles with B20 biodiesel. b20 biodiesel is a mixture of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum dieselthat can be used in a diesel engine without any modifications to the engine.
The township officially entered into the state’s Biodiesel Fuel Rebate Program at a July 13 Town Council meeting, which cleared the way to using greener fuel.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, biodiesel blends, such as B20, reduce the emission levels and toxicity of diesel exhaust, substantially lowering the output of hydrocarbons, sulfate and particulate matter, among other hazardous air pollutants.
Biodiesel is generally made by chemically reacting vegetable oil, animal fat, and alcohol.
