Biodiesel was the fuel of choice at the third annual Vermont Biodiesel Conference held at the Davis Center Wednesday.
The low-emission form of diesel is made from feedstocks such as vegetable oil mixed with typical diesel and can be used in vehicles and heating appliances.
UVM is already using the fuel in the University's fleet of diesel buses and so is the Chittenden County Transportation Authority. In all, 12 of Vermont's cities and towns are using the cleaner-burning fuel in town trucks and to heat town buildings.
