B20 Club of Illinois reaches new milestone

SHARE NOW

The B20 Club of Illinois has announced its member fleets have used more than 110 million gallons of biodiesel blends 20% and higher.

Pete Probst with Chicago-based Indigenous Energy says the milestone comes as the group celebrates its 10th anniversary of working to improve air quality.

“It shows that biodiesel is a drop-in replacement for petroleum diesel,” he said. “It’s very successful at reducing carbon emissions. At 110 million gallons, that basically estimates to be about 200,000 tons of CO2 reduced.”

The B20 Club is a partnership between the Illinois Soybean Association checkoff program and the American Lung Association.
