New Brunswick - Biodiesel Project
Project Identifier
Project Description
The Department of Transportation will be undertaking a project using biodiesel in 12 vehicles, including school buses, snow ploughs and other vehicles. The Department of Transportation is currently focusing on using biodiesel in school buses, snow-plows, and other similar types of vehicles. However, it is noted that biodiesel can be used in any diesel engine and, hence, any type of diesel-powered vehicle. In 2007, 480 million litres of diesel were consumed in New Brunswick, the majority of which was consumed by heavy trucks. This in turn resulted in emissions of approximately 1.2 million tonnes of CO2e to the atmosphere. Before the implementation of this project, there was no known use of biodiesel in the province of New Brunswick.
