Enterprise Embraces Biodiesel

Feb 22, 2010

Rental car giant Enterprise Holdings has announced plans to shift its fleet of shuttle buses to B20 biodiesel within the next 5 years. 

The announcement came at the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, Biodiesel Magazine reported. 

Enterprise Holdings is the parent company of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental. Together, they operate more than 600 shuttle buses. 

Shuttle buses in nine markets will convert to B20 immediately, the company said. By the end of next year, 50 percent of Enterprise Holdings’ shuttle buses will be running on B20. 

Biodiesel is graded by its proportion to petroleum diesel in the final product.  B20 contains 20 percent Biodiesel and has shown significant reduction in environmental harm while maintaining an affordable price for fleets.
