Join VSJF and Liz Miller, the Commissioner of the Public Service Department, along with Bourne's Energy staff at the Grand Opening of the first local biofuel blending plant in central Vermont.
With the support of a Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund grant from the US Dept of Energy and the Office of Senator Patrick Leahy, Bourne's Energy of Morrisville has recently completed the build-out of an injection blending operation for biodiesel. At this state-of-the-art facility the company is now supplying B5, B10, B20 and B99.9 blends of its heating and transportation fuels.
Biodiesel is an easy to use, low carbon fuel, suitable for all diesel engines and heating oil appliances. Its use in heating oil and diesel blends has been shown to reduce CO2 emissions and other pollutants. What's more, Bourne's Energy purchases their local biofuel from White Mountain Biodiesel, which sources used cooking oil, converting it into high quality renewable fuel.
