Remember O2Diesel, the company that is blending ethanol with diesel to make a cleaner-burning, less-polluting fuel? It's just taken another forward in getting its product into the market. O2Diesel said yesterday that all the school buses in the South Dakota Lead-Deadwood school district will move to O2Diesel. The switch is part of a national air quality initiative called CityHome. CityHome uses corporate sponsor dollars to pay to move municipal and school bus systems to use O2Diesel at no additi

Neat, huh? OK, back to the post). But diesel is not perfect, and lots of groups are developing ways to make diesel live up to its low-emission promise. One such group is O2Diesel Corporation, which has developed an ethano
Earlier this month, a company called O2Diesel Corporation announced it was developing a new type of renewable fuel for the Pentagon. The article, from The Auto Channel, describe this new fuel as a “cleaner burning alternative diesel fuel” and says it will be made up of 20 percent renewable resources (apparently it will be 7.7vol% fuel grade ethanol) and will conveniently include the company’s proprietary solubilizing additive O2D05.
