The National Biodiesel Foundation was awarded a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grant through the 2021 Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) program. Tim Fitzgerald D.C. Water, Fleet Manager said, “The leaders at DC Water welcome this award and are working hard with our partners to increase the diesel emissions reductions in the area. This is a good legacy and a great way to help improve the future we leave for our children.”
The National Biodiesel Foundation partners with the DC Department of Public Works and DC Department of Water. Thanks in part to the 2021 Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) program, the projects will expand the use of 100% biodiesel in our Nation’s Capital and assist fleets in achieving carbon neutrality today.
