Biodiesel Success Story in St. Louis

The use of biodiesel has and is helping thousands of fleets and motorist reduce carbon emissions. B20 is the year-round fuel choice for Lambert St. Louis International airport and has been since 1990. This has resulted in cleaner skies and cost savings in St. Louis.

“The use of biodiesel here has resulted in a cost savings. Because biodiesel has more lubricity, we’ve had a cutdown in the number of times we are cleaning and replacing injectors and fuel injection pumps. It’s great to have American fuel support American jobs and the American economy”- Michael Bernich, Fleet Manager, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

Better Breathing with B20

One easy choice that can help everyone breathe easier is supporting clean-burning biodiesel. Rather than depending heavily on foreign petroleum supplies, domestic energy combats trade deficits, fuel supply disruptions and unexpected price changes. Biodiesel provides energy security and enhanced engine operation and safety factors.

According to the US EPA, pure biodiesel reduces lifecycle carbon dioxide by 57-86 percent. Not only does biodiesel reduce carbon emissions but can also provide health benefits.

Bailey Arnold, senior manager of clean air initiatives with the ALA explains that “pure biodiesel was found to be non-toxic and biodegradable, posing no threat to human health.”

The Village of Carol Stream, Ill., converted its municipal fleet of 44 vehicles to clean-burning B20 in 2019, partly because of the health and environmental advantages of biodiesel.

Village leaders worked with the B20 Club, ALA and Pete Probst of Indigenous Energy to clean and prepare their fuel tanks, incorporate B20 into new fueling infrastructure and equip village vehicles to run on high blends.

“Through this transition to B20, we will prevent the release of almost 25 tons of carbon dioxide annually, which is the same as planting 374 trees,” says Sam Barghi, public works management analyst for the Village of Carol Stream, a Chicago suburb of 40,000 in DuPage County. “It is important to us to be good stewards of the environment while not be impacting service levels for our residents in a negative way. It’s also important to provide a cleaner and safer work environment for our employees who work in and around these vehicles all day.”
