City of Lansing Municipal Fleet Getting Greener

June 27, 2007

LANSING, MI – The City of Lansing will begin using engine lubricants made from vegetable and other bio-based oils as part of an effort to reduce greenhouse emissions and increase the city fleet’s efficiency, according to the Lansing State Journal. Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero announced a deal with NRG Superior LLC to use its TVT 24-7 line of lubricants and engine additives.

The move will help the city meet its pledge to reduce energy usage by 10 percent and cut the city’s greenhouse gas emissions under the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement, which Bernero signed in February. The lubricants are expected to reduce fuel costs for the city’s fleet by $90,000 to $150,000 a year.

NRG Superior is a sales and distribution affiliate of NRG Resources Inc, a California startup company focused on alternative energy and bio-based fuels.

Lansing is the first city to use the products, the report said. NRG is targeting manufacturers and commercial operations with its product line.
