The American Lung Association held a forum in Washington, D.C. last Friday to see how using biodiesel improves air quality and therefore human health. The forum, called the Air Quality and Alternative Transportation Fuel Forum, was held after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its proposed Renewable Fuel Standard, which will increase the amount of biofuels used in America (see related story, below).
Attendees heard about biodiesel's lower particulate and toxic compound emissions, and 19 percent lowered life-cycle carbon dioxide emissions. The National Biodiesel Board worked with three chapters of the ALA to host the forum. For a full list of speakers, click here.
