Truck Stop Coffee Talk: The Truth About Biodiesel

July 17, 2019
10 AM - 2:30 PM
Greater I-55 Truck Plaza, 510 South Bolingbrook Drive Bolingbrook, IL 60440

Chicago Area Clean Cities and the B20 Club invite you to join us for a comprehensive program on the health, environmental, and performance advantages of biodiesel-blended fuels as an alternative to traditional diesel fuels. The program will be hosted at the I-55 Truck Plaza and include a site tour with details on the truck stop’s biodiesel fuel procurement process, fuel quality maintenance program, and onsite blending┬áprocedures.

Chicago-area fleets who are using biodiesel blends of B20 (20% biodiesel/80% diesel) or greater will share their experiences with biodiesel blends and discuss best practices for using biodiesel in temperatures as low as -20┬░F. Speakers will also highlight the operational and maintenance benefits of using biodiesel blends, especially in newer vehicles with aftertreatment systems.

The final presentation of the day will include a panel-style discussion with the Chicago Park District, National Biodiesel Board, and Optimus Technologies on a bi-fuel system that allows the Park District to operate two refuse haulers on 100 percent biodiesel all year long.

The event is sponsored by Chicago Area Clean Cities, a designated U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Coalition celebrating its 25th anniversary, and the B20 Club, a partnership of the Illinois Soybean Association and American Lung Association that recognizes Illinois fleets operating their fleets on biodiesel blends of B20 or greater.
