Nation grocery store chain Safeway has announced that they have converted their entire distribution truck fleet to running on biodiesel
. The company has over 1,000 trucks in their fleet, all of which are now fueled with biodiesel. Safeway estimates that the move will cut the cumulative carbon dioxide emissions from their fleet by over 75 million pounds a year. It's unknown if Safeway is using straight biodiesel or a blend (earlier Safeway announcements about biodiesel said the company would use B20
) but either way, it's good to see another major fleet making the switch.
