American Trucking Association Endorses B-5

October 26, 2005

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - The American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) board of directors has unanimously endorsed an energy resolution that includes promoting low blends of biodiesel as part of the organization’s efforts to help shape a strong national energy plan, according to the National Biodiesel Board.The resolution, sanctioned by the board members at ATA’s annual Management Conference and Exhibition in Boston, looks to increase the diesel fuel supply; improve the balance between environmental concerns and fuel efficiency, eliminate boutique diesel fuels, and “promote biodiesel use” of up to 5 percent (B-5). The ATA resolution calls for only biodiesel that meets the national standard (ASTM D-6751) to be used.To see the ATA resolution, visit the ATA Web site at www.truckline.com. Truckers can learn more about biodiesel by visiting www.biotrucker.com, a Web site sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Biodiesel Education Program.
