Biodiesel comes to AU

Sustainability Logo

This summer the campus community will be introduced to AU's latest sustainability initiative when the campus becomes home to a 12,000 gallon biodiesel storage tank, which will be used to fuel AU's diesel vehicles with a blend of biodiesel and diesel fuel expected to dramatically reduce campus carbon dioxide emissions.The decision to support a movement towards more sustainable renewable fuels was made after consideration of other commercially available sustainable vehicle options and is part of a broader transportation plan including use of electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid vehicles, Zip Car access and Bike Sharing Programs.
