Biodiesel’s potential promoted

Turning London’s used cooking oils, fats and greases into biodiesel for vehicles could reduce CO2, deliver economic benefits and relieve pressure on the city’s sewer network.

A new report by the Mayor’s Biodiesel Programme outlines a cost-benefit analysis of a ‘biodiesel revolution’ for London’s buses and municipal fleets.

Produced to help local authority decision makers consider a 20 per cent biodiesel blend, the report suggests that immediate CO2 savings of 10-15 per cent can be offered at lower investment levels than some other environmental measures.

The Programme has also produced a short video, a fact sheet and a range of other documents to inform operators about biodiesel.
