City of Dallas to Use NOx-Cutting Biodiesel Technology From ORYXE Energy

April 11, 2007

DALLAS, TX – Building on efforts to expand the use of clean and renewable energy, the City of Dallas has started running much of its fleet on biodiesel, an alternative fuel made mostly from vegetable oil. The City of Dallas is taking it a step further by becoming the first fleet in the nation to utilize a new biodiesel additive that reduces NOx (oxides of nitrogen) emissions, one of the primary causes of the ozone pollution problem in North Texas. The additive, ORYXE LED for Biodiesel, recently received approval from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The ORYXE Energy additive is blended with B-20 biodiesel, which is a mix of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel. The City of Dallas is fueling several hundred vehicles with the new biodiesel blend, including sanitation trucks, utility trucks, and construction equipment. The city plans to use approximately 350,000 gallons of the biodiesel per year.

ORYXE Energy can deliver the biodiesel additive from its manufacturing facility near Houston to anywhere in Texas for just pennies per gallon of fuel.
